Kronplatz Region

Overview

The South Tyrol - Süd Tirol: Wheelchair friendly, ideal for all - family ski holiday; adaptive skiing and snowboarding; walking and other experiences for those with Parkinson's, MS, Autism, visual impairment, cognitive, sensory or physical needs - It is the ideal place to come and re-charge! It is located in the Northern Italian Alps and borders with Austria. Part of the Austrian Hungarian Empire and only incorporated into Italy after WWI, this region is unique in its heritage, culture and language. An area of outstanding beauty, it also forms part of the famous and iconic Dolomite Mountains.

Historically it stretches back beyond the Roman Times and the route up through Italy and then over the Brenner Pass into Austria continues to be a main route for people, visitors, business and trade - used by the Romans and Napoleon's army, the old coaching inns and hotels continue to offer hospitality and shelter for visitors - many still owned and run by the same family.

People come to this region for its warm welcome, amazing food and wine, and life-empowering experiences - walking, skiing, culture, history, food, wine there is something for everyone whatever your age! And, what is so special is that many of the experiences are also wheelchair friendly. There is still much to do but the overall positivity and enthusiasm by the locals to make this very much a fully accessible and inclusive region is to be commended. There is no doubt that one's health and well-being will be enhanced by spending time here!!

There are many different villages, towns and valleys that make up the 'Süd Tirol' region and we are delighted to give you an insight into these - including the different experiences, places to stay and activities such as ski schools that offer adaptive snow sports. For more indepth information on any of those featured please contact catherine.cosby@mountains4all.org for our Brochure.

The 'Kronplatz Region' of the South Tyrol - Süd Tirol - is based around the historic town of Brunico - Bruneck in the Northern Italy Alps. There are many wonderful villages that offer exciting and life-changing experiences and activities throughout the year. In the winter there is adaptive skiing and snowboarding to be found both in the Kronplatz Ski area itself and the 3 Zinnen ski area just up the valley (they are not connected) but the local bus and train runs regularly between the villages so makes for an easy time!

The South Tyrol - Süd Tirol - is a region that is dominated by family run hotels. Many have been run by the same family for over three or four generations. Hotels dedicated for children and young families are also a great feature for this region but it is the warm welcome and personal service offered by a truly dedicated family run business which Mountains 4 All knows will be the core element for any visit to the region - whether for adaptive or assisted skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports or at any other time of the year when a short or longer break will bring enormous health benefits.

Many are wheelchair accessible and have the Italian Certificate for Celiac Disease whereby the kitchen offers a menu and food suitable for all such conditions.

Hotels, apartments and some chalets are all either with a free shuttle bus or within easy distance of the ski slopes - normally the local bus stops outside and this is free with the hotel guest card.
