Winter holidays in Val Pusteria

Experience unique moments on a winter holiday in the 4-star Hotel Windschar in the Puster Valley

A winter holiday in the snowy Puster Valley leaves you with unforgettable memories. When skiing, snowshoeing or simply winter hiking, the diversified mountain world is there to be explored.
The gorgeous winter sport places of Bruneck, Cortina, Corvara, Tauferer Ahr Valley and Antholzer Valley are located in the immediate vicinity and offer pure snow delight for everybody.

... our mountain and winter wonderland in an overview:

2000 km Alpine slopes

Unique snow conditions, perfectly groomed slopes, state-of-the-art lift facilities and fantastic powder snow characterize your ski paradise around the **** Holiday and Wellness Hotel Windschar and make your skiing holiday on Kronplatz a white dream.

More than 200 km cross-country slopes

Sliding through the snowy scenery, the winter sun in the sky – cross-country skiing in South Tyrol is good for body and mind. Whether classic or Skating, whether a simple circuit or extended tours – there is the right track for everyone.

The Tauferer Ahr Valley is a cross-country skiing paradise on 900 to 1,600 meters above sea level. More than 80 km well-tracked mountain runs offers for beginners and for advanced a lot of fun. We recommend in particular the cross-country center in Rein in Taufers and the sun trail in Kasern in the midst of a pristine and deeply snow covered landscape.

Do test the World championship tracks in Antholz Valley! The diversity around the biathlon and cross-country center in Antholz is immense and everybody can choose a track according its own preferences and level of difficulty. Every year in January Antholz hosts the World Cup and for many supporters it is one of the absolute highlights of the season.

More than 50 km toboggan slopes and nocturnal toboggan jamboree

Sledging in South Tyrol guarantees fun and entertainment! It means first the climb with the sledge ‘on a lead’, then fun and refreshments in a congenial mountain hut, followed by the brisk, exhilarating descent. Our region offers the best conditions for a funny winter adventure: kilometers of slopes, sunny nature toboggan run and fresh mountain air.
Weekly there is a guided organized toboggan trip with Hannes Kronbichler.

Something special and a guarantee to lots of fun is tobogganing at night! The longest illuminated toboggan run in South Tyrol (more than 5 km!) is at Klausberg with the ski lift running every Tuesday from 19:30 to 22:00.
Once a week we organize a torch walk to a farm up in the mountain, followed by a descent on the illuminated track.

A network of glorious hiking routes


It has become the latest trendy winter sport! And anyone who has tried touring on these ‘rackets’ knows why: on snowshoes you can discover winter in its purest form, conquer vast expanses of powder snow and reach heights which were once only accessible to ski mountaineers. High up and remote from the crowds, the climb up to South Tyrol’s summits is rewarded with a grandiose panorama.
Several times per week we offer our guests guided snowshoe tours. Our guide leads you through the snow covered winter landscape.

Comprehensive cultural programme

...and much more

Sleighs, horses and white splendor

Pure romance: whether beneath the clear blue sky or the stars, pulled by blond-maned Haflinger horses across the snow-blanketed landscape. With everybody wrapped up well in warm rugs, a relaxing ride across meadows and Alpine pastures is a unique experience for all.

Ski tours

Exchange the ski lift T-bar for skins, experience the profound calm of the mountains, make your own trail in the soft, undisturbed powder snow... Ski touring brings you into perfect harmony with nature.

The Ahrn Valley with its more than 80 Three-Thousender is ideal for breathtaking ski tours!


Herr Franz Kronbichler organises a curling tournament weekly on the ice-skating rink in Gais for his guests, with fantastic prizes and an awards ceremony at the skiers’ ball. And whoever wins 43 points in 5 attempts wins a week’s holiday free of charge at the **** Holiday and Wellness Hotel Windschar!

Paraglide flights

An unforgettable adventure is a flex-wing flight from Kronplatz to the valley beneath – both in the winter and in the summer!

Natural ice-skating rink
