Over hill and dale!

The territory of hiking boots


“A symphony of meadow, forest, and gentle hills, behind which is the bright fanfare sound of the jubilant towers and ridges of the Dolomites on one side and the fortissimo of the Zillertal Alps on the other.”

How the cold spring water rises up to the forest stream, how the barren cliffs issue tiny flowers of delicate beauty, how the clouds cling to the summit there!  Whoever wishes to not just visit the Val Pusteria-Pustertal valley  and its side valleys in South Tyrol, but also really experience it should take the path by foot.

Colorful flower meadows and fragrant herbs

Because many of the highlights of the Kronplatz region in South Tyrol such as the high alpine pastures of Fanes, the Fundres-Pfunderer Mountain Trail, or the numerous crosses at the peaks of the Dolomites are best reached by hiking.  Whether it is at the time of bewitchingly perfumy herbs and meadow flowers in the spring, or going through shady forests up to the cooler high elevations in the summertime, whether traversing colorful landscapes in autumn or leaving silent footprints in the winter – hiking is possible in the Val Pusteria throughout the entire year.

Beautiful landscapes

Comfortable forest paths through thick woods, circular routes with endless panorama views, trails to the peaks for the pros, paths with steel cables for surefooted mountain climbers, or gentle tours for the whole family – the possibilities which the Val Pusteria along with its side valleys offer their visitors are infinite.  Whether in the rustic Gsieser Tal valley, in the Ladin-speaking Gadertal valley with the unique peaks of the Dolomites, or in the picturesque Antholzertal valley, hiking is a matter of character. The Kronplatz region encompasses a total of three unique nature parks, and the mountain worlds are also multifaceted: the Vedrette di Ries-Rieserferner area, the Fundres-Pfunders mountains, the Dolomites, and the main ridge of the Alps.
