Things To Do

Things to see and do in Plan de Corones 

Plan de Corones sits below Mount Kronplatz. The unique flat top mountain is perfect for a family day out exploring the area. Keep an eye out for wildlife on the way up in the gondola. At the top there’s a farm where the Tibetan highland yaks are always posing for a photo.

A visit to the Messner Mountain Museum is a must. In this space-like building carved into the rock side you can learn all about Reinhold Messner, the extreme climber and mountaineer. Exhibits include the science of glaciers and the history of the local people. 

Food & drink 

The region’s famous for its food with influences from Italy, Austria and Switzerland. Be sure to try delicious local food like canederli (bread dumplings) with local speck ham and cheese. Alpine huts dotted around the mountains are some of the best places to immerse yourself in the local food scene. They’re also the perfect spot for a cool beer or refreshing glass of wine. 

Activities

Mountain biking is massive in the area with loads of trails ready to be torn up. All levels are welcome with a range of routes to try. Enjoy the lovely sweeping flow-lines running down the mountain on your own or speak to the bike school in resort for expert advice. 

Plan de Corones is full of action. Have a go at archery, take to the high ropes course or hurl yourself down a zip wire - it’s all possible here.

The latest attraction found at the top of Mount Kronplatz is the Skyscraper. Strap into your harness and let gravity do the rest on this giant swing. Will you be brave enough to keep your eyes open and embrace the incredible views?
