Sledging on the Kronplatz: Huge fun on the toboggan runs of Pustertal
Set aside your sporting ambition for a moment. This is all about pure fun. Sledging on the Kronplatz brings fun to your winter holiday and a heavy dose of romance to boot. With a sledge in tow, you head up the picturesque mountain. There is a little hut waiting for you up there, ready to fill you up with a hearty snack and an invigorating tea. And then over to the toboggan run, where you zoom down the mountain! As a pair, group or family, sledging brings a smile to everyone’s face. Among the many runs in Pustertal, there is guaranteed to be one that will be just what you are looking for.
The nearest toboggan run is in the vicinity
Walking tour, stop off at a hut, sledging party. These are the three elements that make a day on holiday in winter absolutely perfect. A comfortable get-together in one of our many huts and mountain guesthouses is always something to look forward to. There are too many toboggan runs to list here, but there is one near our hotel in Terenten that goes over 400 m – a suitable reward for the climb up to the top! These easy pistes are a contrast to those that require a bit of ability, such as the Ellen-Rodelbahn an der Kreuzner-Rastnerhütte in St Lorenzen, which runs for 7 km down into the valley. There is also the 2 km-long Guggenberg-Bahn in Taisten-Zentrum in the Gsieser Tal, which is something to reckon with.
A special pleasure: a toboggan party under a full moon
Have you ever been sledging at night? No? Then it’s high time you did! Some toboggan runs in Pustertal are floodlit and are particularly suited to night owls sledging by full moonlight. A thick extra sweater and a head torch mean you are ready to go. Whizzing through the glistening starlit night is an experience that will stay with you for a long time. If you sledge on the Kronplatz, then the Korer and Cianross runs are open to you. You can reach the Rinne, which is floodlit by night, by chair lift, and descend from 1,500 m to 500 m.
