Plan de Corones

The Plan de Corones in Riscone near Brunico is well-known far beyond the borders as a hiking and skiing area.

The 2,275 m high Plan de Corones (Kronplatz in German) is not among the highest summits of the Braies Dolomites but among the most known. In summer it is a famous hiking area while in winter the Plan de Corones turns into a famous skiing area with 119 km pistes and two sledge runs.

The local mountain of Brunico with its relatively flat summit is located at the edge of the Dolomites. The Plan de Corones has also given its name to the holiday region in the Val Pusteria valley and is divided on the three municipalities of Brunico, Marebbe and Valdaora. Highest point is the Spitzhörnle.

The Plan de Corones also plays a part in the Fanes Legend: it is said, that Dolasilla, the invulnerable princess of the Fanes Realm, was crowned here. Today, the Messner Mountain Museum Corones and the museum Lumen, dedicated to mountain photography, are located on the summit.
