Actively relax and regenerate, that’s what I set out to do after a very intense time and therefore chose this 5-star active hotel, newly opened only in 2020. From mountain friends for mountain friends – inspired by the passion of South Tyrolean mountain sports legends so writes the Falkensteiner Hotel Kronplatz, it wants to be a new active hot spot for adult guests and offer unique experiences on and around the best active mountain in South Tyrol all year round.The journey into the weekend begins with a picturesque drive through the Puster Valley, past cornfields and castles, and my thoughts are already a little freer. A desire to finally roam through a cornfield. Arrived! How nice, the Falkensteiner Hotel is located in beautiful nature, adjacent to wide cornfields in Reischach/Bruneck below the famous Kronplatz.
Falkensteiner Hotel Kronplatz DESIGN and ARCHITECTURE
The signature of architect Metteo Thun is unmistakable here. The entrance area is friendly and very inviting. Striking is the artificial tree in autumnal coloring, which almost blocks the exciting view of the mountain station of the Kronplatz. Well distributed, the many cozy lounge places invite you to linger and to window shop the display cases with fashion items and accessories.
Experiencing self-determined and unique active moments.
UNIQUE. MOUNTAIN. EXPERIENCE.
South Tyrol’s Kronplatz is a veritable El Dorado of active highlights that should make sports enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies alike happy, writes the Falkensteiner Hotel. I know the Kronplatz in winter and gladly confirm this statement. It is a very special pleasure to let off steam on 117 km of dream pistes at Kronplatz in wonderful snow conditions and then sink into a hut afterwards. I can only warmly recommend such a skiing vacation.
But first to the late summer / autumn program of Experience Concierge René: What would I have imagined? Experience an individually designed and personalized adventure in the Pustertal mountains or go out together with the concierge? Paragliding from Kronplatz and landing in the cornfield, a sideseeing flight with the hot air balloon, hiking or yet the extreme climbing tour? A round with the mountain bike or “downhilling” down from Kronplatz? There is something for every taste. But I leave the falcon flight and the hot air balloon to the other guests and enjoy watching the fun from below. Canyoning or rafting in the wild waters of the Pustertal, that sounds good. Golfing would be possible in the only 1.8 km from the hotel 9-hole course of the “Golf Club Pustertal”. In the hotel itself, I could let off steam on the indoor climbing wall and test the various levels of difficulty. And maybe even hit the jackpot? But no one would have managed that yet… And in the modern gym would be super great high-tech cardio equipment and I should not forget.
Fitness studios are everywhere, but this unique diverse mountain landscape, you can not find everywhere.
So then, off to the mountains!
A long mountain tour would be just right and I have been looking forward to it for a while. Unfortunately, however, rain is announced for tomorrow. There seems to be no agreement with the weatherman here.
No matter, for this I have plan B: in the LUMEN, the photography museum at Kronplatz a new exhibition opens. The Falkensteiner Hotel Kronplatz cooperates with the LUMEN, so my Experience Concierge is not offended.
It’s just a 5-minute walk to the cable car station and the ride up offers a magnificent view of the surrounding mountain landscape.
With the Museum of Mountain Photography LUMEN, this fascination finds a photographic home: located at the summit of Kronplatz, 1800 square meters are fully dedicated to the photography of the mountains. On four floors, LUMEN makes it possible to experience the history of mountain photography from its beginnings to the present, as well as the art of mountain photographers from all over the world. Scientific standards and entertainment are not a contradiction in terms – the LUMEN Mountain Museum shows historical photographs and digital innovations, exciting temporary and special exhibitions as well as spectacular stagings. Adjacent to the museum the well-known restaurant of ***star chef Norbert Niederkofler & Paolo Ferretti The AlpiNN – Food Space & Restaurant.
Currently on view at LUMEN is a wonderful exhibition by Gregor Sailer: THE POLAR SILK ROAD until 04/24/2022.

E-BIKE TOURto the Reintal
The Falkensteiner Hotel Kronplatz rents out e-bikes to guests. Racing bikes and mountain bikes bring the guests themselves. That sounds at first like offer for very comfortable bike laps. But active sports concierge Renè says he would choose a challenging bike tour for me. And I would be happy to be on the road with a battery-powered bike. I’m excited about the e-bike tour into the Reintal valley to the three waterfalls..
I get an e-bike in suitable size and can start. For the first time it goes downhill in the direction of Bruneck. The bike path passes close to the city center and I also quickly explore this charming little town.
The city of Brunico left behind me, I continue along the many green fields and castles in the direction of Reintal.
The Reinbach Falls – The three waterfalls in Rein in Taufers are an impressive natural spectacle and an insider tip in winter, when they freeze over and present themselves as glittering ice sculptures. Already here at the 1st waterfall I am impressed by this wild nature and the water power.
I can hardly get enough of this natural splendor and the thunderous roar of the water of these three waterfalls. Back to the launch site, I treat myself to the fun of whizzing through the woods on the Fly line.
In the early afternoon I am back and look forward to lingering in a cozy outdoor spot and another experience in the hamam.
Where wine or fruit is grown elsewhere in South Tyrol, the Puster Valley is known for its corn cultivation. Here adjacent to the Falkensteiner Hotel are these vast cornfields of lush green. So soothing and relaxing is the view of this landscape.
