Summer at Kronplatz: Hiking, mtb & more

Natural wonders & summer adventures

A summer on the Kronplatz: with sweeping views to the horizon. And the Olang Dolomites are there, it feels like you can touch them. Not only down into the valley, but especially at the top, where the crosses stand out, freedom is infinite and each step is an emotion. What experience awaits you today? The summer on the Kronplatz is so varied that it will be difficult to choose: do you prefer the high mountain landscape with panoramic views or a motorcycle whirl around the valley? Do you want to change views, discover the world from above with the “zip-line”, stroll in Olang, climb, swim, ride or visit a museum - or do you want to do a little of everything? Your summer on Kronplatz: it’s time for an adventure.
