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.
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!
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.
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.
If you long for a summer refreshment during your holidays at Plan de Corones/Kronplatz, we recommend you to take a plunge into a cool bathing- or mountain lake or outdoor pool. At only a few minutes’ walk from our hotel (about 1 km) you find the water world Cron4 with outdoor pool, sole bath, indoor pools including sports pool and award-winning sauna landscape. Would you also like to jump into a natural bathing lake during your holiday at Plan de Corones/Kronplatz? Then visit Lake Issengo/Issing! The idyllic lake with restaurant and rafting club is located near Falzes/Pfalzen, only about 20 minutes’ drive from our house. If you prefer a more picturesque and dramatic setting, then we recommend you an excursion to Lake Anterselva/Antholz or Lake Braies/Prags. Make sure to take a boat ride or a walk around the lake!
