Hiking, rafting, mountain biking, or paragliding – the warmest season in the Tauferer Ahrntal has so much to offer!

Surrounded by lush meadows and framed by glacier-crowned three-thousand-metre mountains, the Kronplatz holiday area offers many leisure opportunities. Various hikes to chalets and alpine meadows start right from our hotel, including some in the Rieserferner-Ahrn Nature Park.

For anyone who would like to explore Ahrntal on their bicycle, the 18-kilometre-long bike path from Sand in Taufers to Bruneck, which continues on to the Puster Valley bike path, is worth it. Take a leisurely bike tour – suitable for the whole family – along the flat valley floor through meadows and pastures. For mountain bikers, mountain bike tours in the Nature Park or on the Kronplatz panoramic mountain await.


Several high ropes courses, riding stables, and the longest alpine roller coaster in Italy are located in the Tauferer Ahrntal. If that’s still not enough action for you, dare to take a white water rafting trip through the Ahr rapids – a real adrenaline rush in the cool waters.

Float above it all and see the world from up high. Take a tandem flight or go paragliding/ hang-gliding and you’ll feel truly exhilarated and experience unforgettable moments high above Sand in Taufers.


The special character of the former residential Dynastic of Taufers annually attracts more than 70,000 visitors into its spell. Children delight in the "armory to attack." Art lovers will enjoy the Pacher frescoes and romantics the storybook castle. With special exhibitions and cultural events, as well as a castle bar in the castle courtyard, the castle invites you to linger.
