The Puster Valley

Dreamlike landscapes framed by forest and mountains, a romantic small-town atmosphere, and warm hospitality: welcome to the Puster Valley!

The Kronplatz – Puster Valley vacation area, the green valley on the south side of the main Alpine Ridge

The valley is marked by the forest, the unique mountain landscape, and the incomparable rock formations. One can note the stark contrast between the bedrock of the Zillertal Alps and the Rieserferner Group in the north and the strange and rugged rock formations of the unparalleled Dolomites in the south.

Some of the biggest and most important mountains with glaciers in the north are Großglockner, Großvenediger, Schwarzenstein, Löffler… and some of the best known peaks of the Dolomites in the south are the Drei Zinnen, Marmolada, Sella, Peitlerkofel …

The special benefit, however, is that the Puster Valley lies on the sun-kissed, weather-favoured south side of the main Alpine ridge, which means many sunny days.
