The family run Hotel Mareo has been done up to such a beautiful standard. It's got everything you need for rejuvenating your body and mind, from an excellent spa to panoramic views of the Dolomite landscape. 

Panoramic mountain views

The Dolomites are one of the best places to take some time in nature and get back in touch with the natural world. The Mareo shows off the surrounding mountain landscape to its advantage, so you can get those incredible panoramic views from most parts of the hotel. The views are particularly memorable in the summer sunshine!

The ideal summer wellness retreat

The Clara family have put lots of attention into the wellness facilities of the hotel. The spa is modern and peaceful with three saunas and a relaxation area that looks out onto the outdoor pool. Take a dip in the pool and breathe in the fresh mountain air whilst enjoying the views. If you need to ease some tension after walking in the mountains, you can book yourself a relaxing massage (payable locally).

Kronplatz is the name of the mighty mountain that shares its name with the region beyond. Known as Plan de Corones in the local language of Ladin, there’s an array of ways to explore the valleys and peaks here, from footpaths to zip wires – as well as cable cars that put everything in easy reach. The village of San Vigilio di Marebbe welcomes visitors with mountain cuisine and cosy inns surrounded by pine woods, centuries-old farms and mountains. But, the wildest scenery lies just south, where Fanes-Senes-Braies Natural Park lays out the dramatic vistas the Dolomites are famous for – including the turquoise waters of Lago di Braies-Pragser Wildsee.

Family holidays in Kronplatz 

Holidays to Kronplatz and surrounding towns have lots to offer for families in the summer. Whether you're looking for a mountain adventure like the 40-metre-long marble run at the top of the mountain station or family friendly walks like the bread and butter trail. You can not only enjoy those incredible mountain views but find an activity to suit all ages of the family! There's of course action packed fun too like the summer tubing track for those adrenaline junkies or the Kron trampoline park to see those mountain views from even higher. Hike alpine paths in the Dolomites, zoom down zip lines, tackle the via ferrata course, take to the skies on a paraglider, or rocket through the bike park on its dedicated (and occasionally hair-raising) trails - you are simply spoilt for choice in Kronplatz for family fun! 

Mountain huts and mountain museums

Hiking paths lead into the rocky vistas of the Dolomites – or you can stick to a leisurely loop around Kronplatz, stopping at the mountain huts, viewpoints and museums en route. Messner Mountain Museum, Corones is the Space Age creation of architect Zaha Hadid and renowned local mountaineer Reinhold Messner. Duck inside the plateau-edge museum to learn all about the history of mountaineering in the Tyrol. Rifugio restaurants serve up mountain fare nearby, with energy-boosting menus of canederli bread dumplings and charcuterie boards piled high with smoked speck ham and herb-crusted cheese.

Welcome to Ladinia

It’s a good idea to learn a little of the three local languages if planning a holiday to Kronplatz. German is most widely spoken after the region’s stint under Austrian rule, but you’ll also hear Italian and Ladin, the original language of these once-remote mountain valleys. In fact, Kronplatz is a stronghold of Ladin culture – best experienced by staying in a valley village such as San Vigilio di Marebbe. Here, life revolves around the cobblestone village square, where a baroque church points its steeple to the sky. Chalet-like houses, hotels and restaurants line the streets, some adorned with wood carvings and serving Tyrolean favourites like crispy feies da soni potatoes and poppy seed pasta.

Into the wild: walking in the Fanes-Sennes-Braies and Puez Odle natural parks

There’s a wild world beyond Kronplatz. Fanes-Senes-Braies Natural Park stretches out to the south-east. It’s perhaps best-known for the Alta Via 1 – one of the most famous long-distance hikes in the Dolomites. Easier routes take you rambling past sheer mountain faces, and onwards through bright green pastures grazed by hardy cows, rocky, forested valleys, and mountain meadows awash with wildflowers. The walking opportunities here are endless! 

The neighbouring Puez Odle Natural Park is another great choice for wanderers who like their walks with a bit of drama. The unusual geology of the Dolomites is on full display here, including tunnel-like cleft mountains and towering limestone karsts. Keep your eyes on the skies – you might just spy a golden eagle gliding overhead.
