Hiking Hotel in the Dolomites

The most beautiful hikes in Val Pusteria/Pustertal

Val Pusteria/Pustertal ranges from Lienz in East Tyrol to Bressanone/Brixen in South Tyrol and it offers numerous tours for keen hikers and mountaineers. For centuries, the mountain farmers of the region Plan de Corones/Kronplatz have worked hard in the alpine nature and formed its appearance.

Only therefore, cows are grazing on lush meadows around our Hiking Hotel on Plan de Corones/Kronplatz at 1,400 metres above sea level. In front of the wild peaks of the Dolomites, the rustic mountain huts are a very special sight.

The most beautiful hikes in the region:

Vedrette di Ries/Rieserferner Group: Rifugio Roma/Hochgall/Kassler Hut

  • Starting point: Riva di Tures/Rein in Taufers – car park at the valley floor
  • Elevation gain: 740 m
  • Duration: ca 2-3 hours ascent, 1-2 hours descent
  • Well-built trails, but fitness and sure-footedness are necessary. The shelter is the most important hub for hikes in this area. The panorama along the Arthur Hartdegen trail is a highlight of this tour. Tip: If you are an adventurous mountaineer, you should not miss the detour to the little via ferrata that leads you on the top of Monte Covoni/Tristennöckl.
