Mountaineering, climbing and hiking: the Kronplatz is not only the perfect place for a skiing holiday because even hikers love this holiday area in Eastern South Tyrol. The deep green meadows and forests invite you to take long walks while the imposing peaks of the Rieserferner-Ahrn and Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park charm hikers and mountaineers. The Superior 3 start Amaten Hotel is situated at the centre of this scene above Bruneck, the main town of the Puster Valley.
Here everything is green as far as the eye can see. Through the years, we have become a hotel beloved by hikers thanks to our unique location and impressive panoramic view. Everyone who wants to spend the summer in Kronplatz stay with us because hiking in the Puster Valley starts right when you exit the door of the hotel.
Very popular hiking destinations of the area include Tesselberg, the ‘Mühlbacher Badl’, the highest mineral water source of the Puster Valley, Malga Lercher and Malga Oberwaidach [alpine huts] run by relatives of the Hotel Amaten family. Those who want to climb higher when hiking around the Kronplatz are spoiled for choice. Enthusiastic mountaineers climb up to the top of Geige or climb the Bel Colle, in German Schönbichl (2,451 m), two peaks that will reward the efforts with their fantastic views.
Once you return from your trips and excursions, relax with the spa and wellness services in the Puster Valley.
The earth pyramids of Plata, a breathtaking natural phenomenon, are only 3 km from our hotel. In 1882 a large landslide gave birth to this bizarre column structure. Young and old hikers can reach this unique natural phenomenon near our hotel by taking a trail that is easy to follow.
Even if the majority of the hiking destinations of the surrounding area are well marked, you can find hiking maps for the Puster Valley directly in the hotel.
