Discover Mount Plose with ‘Mountain Carts’
Great fun, not only for kids: Rent some Mountain Carts and enjoy a joyride on Mount Plose! At the wheel of one of the three-wheeled speedsters you will experience our local mountain from a very special side – fast-paced action that is truly unique during a summer holiday in the mountains. The 10-km route from the mountain station to the valley station offers a particularly exciting experience. The funny thing about the Mountain Carts is that they don’t have pedals. Nevertheless, the speed can be controlled individually and of course you can also brake. If you want to! But don’t worry: The small, very stable Fun-Carts with two wide tires and one narrow tire are ideally suited for trips in the Dolomites and are considered very safe.
The gorge ‘Gilfenklamm’ close to Vipiteno
A truly special gorge awaits you in Racines (Wipptal): The Gilfenklamm – a gorge in pure white marble. Explore it in about an hour’s hike over wooden walkways and bridges and feel the waterfalls on your skin. The elemental force of the water, which has cut through the rock for thousands of years, is tangible with all senses. The gorge is protected as a natural monument and counts among the most beautiful natural spectacles in the Alpine region.
Isarco Valley South Tyrol
Castles and Palaces
One of the most important transit routes in the Eastern Alps leads through the Isarco Valley. The enormous economic and strategic importance of the valley is made evident by the many castles and palaces that are lined up across the region – almost like a string of pearls. Emperors and kings, popes and bishops, traders, merchants, poets and artists and even entire armies – they all used the route across the Brennero Pass. The Isarco Valley connects Germany to the Po Valley, from Central Europe to the Adriatic Sea. The many castles along the Brennero route served on the one hand to defend and control the traffic route, on the other hand they were also representative buildings that testified to the power and wealth of their owners. Discover the Fortress Fortezza above Bressanone, the only baroque castle in South Tyrol: Wolfsthurn Castle in Racines, Trostburg, Velthurns Castle, Gernstein Castle near Chiusa and many more.
Rafting & Canyoning
Nicht nur für Ihre Kinder ein großer Spaß: Leihen Sie sich Mountaincarts aus und unternehmen Sie eine Spritztour auf der Plose! Am Steuer eines der dreirädrigen Flitzer erleben Sie unseren Hausberg von einer ganz eigenen Seite – nämlich mit einer rasanten Action, wie sie für einen Sommerurlaub in den Bergen schon ungewöhnlich ist. Die 10-km-Strecke von der Bergstation bis zur Talstation gilt als besonders spannender Parcours. Das Witzige an den Mountaincarts ist, dass sie über keine Pedale verfügen. Dennoch lässt sich die Geschwindigkeit individuell regeln und auch bremsen können Sie selbstverständlich. Wenn Sie das überhaupt wollen! Aber keine Sorge: Die kleinen, sehr stabilen Fun-Carts mit den zwei breiten und dem einen schmalen Reifen sind hervorragend tauglich für Ausfahrten in den Dolomiten und gelten als sehr sicher.
Ready, set, go climbing!
The high-ropes course in Funes is located in a unique panorama under the Odle Peaks in the Funes Valley and is only 50 m from the car park Ranui. Fun and excitement are guaranteed: With twelve courses of different heights and degrees of difficulty and with a total of approx. 120 stations, it has plenty to offer for young and old.
The high-ropes course ‘Skytrek’ in Vipiteno also offers an ideal destination for families with children and adventure seekers. In the heart of the beautiful city of Vipiteno, you may climb parcourse amidst treetops, race down long ziplines, conquer a high climbing tree and enjoy the resting areas with hammocks.
Biking on Mount Plose
In the summer, explore Mount Plose near Bressanone on two wheels and enjoy the striking landscape along these mountain trails with great views. Mountain bike tours are an immensely popular activity. For leisurely bikers there are three pleasure bike tours that take you to the most beautiful panoramic lodges: Plosehütte, Pfannspitzhütte as well as Rossalm.
Fantastic toboggan rides on the RudiRun
And in winter? There is an incomparable toboggan run on the Plose that you cannot miss on your holiday with children. From the mountain station of the cable car, RudiRun slopes down 10 km to the foot of the mountain – one of the longest natural toboggan runs in Europe over 1,000 m. While the first section can be driven more comfortably, in the following sections skill is essential. Your children will love this run!
Ice Arena Bressanone
The Ice rink in Bressanone was opened in 1985. Since then, it has been a popular meeting place for young and old ice-skating enthusiasts as well as a training facility for the Bressanone ice sports clubs HC Falcons (ice hockey) and WSV Bressanone (figure skating and curling).
The Italian national team, the KHL team of HC Vityaz (Russia) and the DEL team Schwenningen Wild Wings (Germany) have already had training camps in the Ice Arena in Bressanone. Furthermore, every year several Austrian and German hockey teams use the facility to prepare for their championships with short training camps in October and November.
The ice rink opens its gates at the beginning of November and awaits you Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. throughout the winter.
with a tour over the WoodyWalk
Colorful family trips
Get on the wooden path! At the Plose mountain station, the route to Rossalm – named WoodyWalk – begins alongside other worthwhile hiking trails. The difference in height is only 100 m, so that the 4-km-tour belonging to the Dolomites panorama path can be walked quite relaxed and even with the baby carriage. Along the idyllic trails are built wooden playstations, from which also the name WoodyWalk derives. The many possibilities to play are also presented very entertaining, are educational and surprising. They carry such witty names as “Plose thunderbolt”, “wood telephon”, “Viking ship” or “non-the-ground-touch-way”. And while the children have a lot of fun, you can enjoy the wonderful view of the Dolomites with the Peitlerkofel, the Aferer and the Villnössler Geisler in your family holiday at Brixen.
