The Kronplatz region in South Tyrol-Südtirol – the northernmost region of Italy - comprises a unique, astonishingly varied landscape mixture.
It extends from the western part of the Val Pusteria-Pustertal through the Valle Aurina-Ahrntal as far as the Valle Anterselva-Antholzertal and the Valle di Casies-Gsieser Tal, and it reaches to the south as far as the Val Badia-Gadertal. While in the north, the high mountains of the main ridge of the Alps call out for mountain climbers, mountain bikers, cable climbers, and in the winter for ski tourers, that also occurs in the southeast from the legendary, majestic “pale peaks” of the Dolomites, which are a UNESCO World Heritage site. And those who prefer to experience nature in a gentle way go on a voyage of discovery by strolling, hiking, or cycling through the Val Pusteria, exploring its side valleys with the villages so filled with tradition, or visiting Brunico-Bruneck.
The very heart of the region and, at the same time, what provides its name is the 2,275 m (7,464 ft.) high Plan de Corones-Kronplatz, which is also renowned as the Number One Ski Mountain in South Tyrol-Südtirol.
The towns of the region are the medieval city of Brunico-Bruneck and its associated vacation destinations of S. Lorenzo-St. Lorenzen, Falzes-Pfalzen, Gais/Villa Ottone-Uttenheim, and Perca-Percha; the Ladin Dolomites villages of San Vigilio and San Martin, the vacation community of Chienes-Kiens, the sunny village of Terento-Terenten, the active family village of Valdaora-Olang, the rustic Val Casies-Gsieser Tal with Monguelfo-Welsberg and Tesido-Taisten, the idyllic Valle Anterselva-Antholzertal that is famous for the Biathlon World Cup, the lovely village of Campo Tures-Sand in Taufers with its side valleys, and the Valle Aurina-Ahrntal hemmed in by majestic glaciers.
The Kronplatz region is filled with unsurpassed variety, exuding a unique, magical appeal.
