Hotel Teresa is surrounded by nature at the bottom of the famous Kronplatz mountains. It’s the perfect base for an active holiday. The area's known for its hiking trails, road biking and mountain biking 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.

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.

Transfer time: approx. 2 hours 30 minutes by coach from Innsbruck airport. From mid- September guests will fly into Verona airport, transfer time approx. 3 hours.

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.

The legendary Kronplatz

The mountain of Kronplatz – or Plan de Corones – is the “crowning place” of Dolasilla, the warrior princess of the national epic of the Ladin people who have lived in the Dolomites for thousands of years. Hop in a cable car up to the crowning plateau, where you can explore the mountains with all the fearlessness of Dolasilla. Hike alpine paths, 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.

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 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.

Food is a real focal point here. At breakfast you’ll find a wide selection of breads, pastries, fruit, yoghurt and cereals. They also have some hot options like scrambled eggs. Dinner is a choice of four courses accompanied by a salad and vegetable buffet. Every once in a while they host a traditional Ladin evening where you can get a real 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 aperitif - they have excellent fresh fruit liqueurs.
