Hotel Teresa is surrounded by nature at the bottom of the famous Kronplatz mountains. It’s the perfect base for a walking holiday.

Great location for walking and biking

The area's known for its walking and biking trails in the summer, with lots of downhill and free ride paths to choose from. If you want to head up into the mountains, the Pedagà-Piz de Plaies cable car is just 300 metres away. The Schanung-Vallazza family really know their stuff. They’re experts on the area and are always happy to offer advice and recommendations on where to head for the day. They even offer free excursions – we loved wildlife watching in the UNESCO National Park.

Delicious local food & drink

The food here is definitely something to shout about. The hearty Ladin dishes really hit the spot after a day out on the mountains. The hotel are also committed to sustainability and have collaborated with local farms and organisations to make sure that the produce they use adheres to a “zero kilometre” policy where possible.

Kronplatz

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.

Dinner is a choice of four courses accompanied by a salad and vegetable buffet. Once a week the hotel hosts a traditional Ladin evening where you can get a feel for the region's culture and typical foods. 

The chef cooks a combination of Tyrolean, Ladin and Mediterranean style dishes– so expect typical mountain fare and Italian flavours. The hotel have collaborated with local producers to ensure, where possible, that the food they serve is locally and sustainably sourced. For example, all of their pasta and bread is homemade.

They have a varied wine list and love to promote local Alto Adige wines, so just ask for recommendations and they’ll be happy to advise.

Le Café & Bar has a homely atmosphere, delicious pastries and homemade ice cream. It’s also a nice place for an aperitivo - they have excellent fresh fruit liqueurs.
