A summer holiday at Plan de Corones: heading towards the top

Finally, the holidays have come! And Plan de Corones/Kronplatz is calling. What is your answer for this hiking paradise with a peace bell at its very top? When are you coming for a visit? We are already waiting for you at our family-run 3-star hotel at Plan de Corones/Kronplatz  in Santo Stefano/Stefansdorf – with summer- and holiday feel, comfortable rooms and a comforting ambience.

Wanderlust during a summer holiday at Plan de Corones

The panoramic mountain in Riscone/Reischach is mountain number 1 in South Tyrol, summer and winter. In summer, you can reach the top of Plan de Corones/Kronplatz comfortably by gondola car – or, alternatively, by foot, in about 4 hours walk from Santo Stefano/Stefansdorf.

Pack your backpack, ty your hiking shoes and make sure to slap on sunscreen, hat and sun glasses. Once you have reached the top, you enjoy a spectacular round view of the surrounding mountain peaks of the Alps and the Dolomites. Treat yourself to a break on a blossoming mountain meadow or in one of the inviting mountain restaurants and lean back and enjoy the view. Other hotspots to see during your summer holiday at Plan de Corones/Kronplatz are: the summits in Valle Aurina/Ahrntal of 3,000 metres and higher, the South Tyrolean trademark Three Peaks in Alta Val Pusteria/Hochpustertal, the crystal-clear Lake Braies/Prags, Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm, Europe’s largest high plain with the majestic Mt. Sciliar/Schlern and much more!

Into the saddle and off into the wild

Many a trail is much easier to master when in the saddle of a mountain bike. For instance the downhill trail starting at the summit of Plan de Corones/Kronplatz. Or the round trail to Riscone/Reischach and Brunico/Bruneck and back to Santo Stefano/Stefansdorf via San Lorenzo/St. Lorenzen. If you are looking for a greater challenge, what about an ascent to the Three Peaks or a little round tour across the Dolomites. Or simply cruise about in the picturesque valley. The region is full of fantastic bike trails: from Brunico/Bruneck to Campo Tures/Sand in Taufers, to Lienz in East Tyrol, to Bressanone/Brixen or Bolzano/Bozen. On the way back, you can comfortably travel on the modern Pustertal Valley train.

On the motor bike across the Dolomites

If you have taken the plunge and embarked on a summer holiday at Plan de Corones/Kronplatz on motor bike, you will soon find yourself well-rewarded with a great number of spectacular tours. One of which is the tour across Val Badia/Gadertal over Passo delle Erbe/Würzjoch at about 2,000 m height. Continue further to Velturno/Feldthurns, Bressanone/Brixen and back to our hotel. Also a drive to Lake Braies/Prags – or further to Lake Misurina – is a classic among the motor-bike tours. If you like your lakes bigger and with a slight Mediterranean touch, you can easily ride to Lake Garda and back for the day.
