Country holidays in Riscone
A vacation at Plan de Corones offers more than just skiing fun
Is Plan de Corones in South Tyrol more than just skiing fun? Yes, of course! Experience Riscone and the holiday region Plan de Corones in green, multi-colour, earth-coloured or white; high up on the mountain top, in the valley or in the city – it’s your choice! In any case, our farm Mair am Bach in Riscone is the ideal starting point for an exciting holiday, all year round! While in spring the green, gentle meadows tempt you to explore the awakening of nature on foot or by mountain bike, the sun-drenched rocky peaks in summer call out to mountaineers and climbers. Pure pleasure and wellness are on the agenda in autumn when the bright orange, yellow and red tones nestle against the mountains and transform the valleys into an unforgettable feast for the eyes. And when the first snowflakes fall and cover the mountain peaks, it’s time for skiing fun in fairytale white landscapes. If you then want to experience some culture from and in South Tyrol, the nearby picturesque town of Brunico is a good choice.

…in and around Riscone
Wellness in South Tyrol – close to the farm
Our farm Mair am Bach in South Tyrol is not only the ideal place to explore the mountains in and around Riscone, but also to relax and unwind in and around the water. A soothing foot massage in the middle of nature? Our barefoot path, which is located directly in our garden, can offer you just that: not only an experience for adults; children also love feeling and touching nature with their feet. If you want to cool off in the fresh mountain water, you visit the Kneipp Trail in Riscone, which is located in the forest just a few steps behind our farm. You can also experience fresh mountain water in a natural setting on excursions to the many mountain lakes and waterfalls in the surrounding side valleys, such as the Reiner Waterfalls in Aurina Valley or Lake Anterselva in Anterselva Valley. A special tip: The Reiner Waterfalls are particularly suitable for a family outing. The walk is not very long, and the waterfalls offer a unique experience, but the special highlight is the fly-line: you don’t have to walk all the way back, the fly-line allows you to “fly back” through the trees and over the waterfalls to the starting point.
The CRON4 in Riscone is a unique wellness experience with pool worlds, sauna landscapes, whirlpool, and relaxation rooms. The indoor adventure pool is just a few minutes’ walk from your country vacation in Riscone, and as our guest you have reduced entry to the pools and sauna area. The facility is divided into a sports area and a bathing area and, with its 5 pools, a tube slide, a spacious sunbathing area and the pleasant indoor relaxation area, offers a year-round bathing experience for young and old.
Only 400 m away – Reduced entry for our guests to the Cron 4 indoor pool & sauna in Riscone, while the public outdoor pool in Brunico is only 3 km away. Read more…

A leisurely stroll through picturesque alleys, a visit to a castle or a cup of coffee after an extensive shopping tour is what a trip to the nearby Rienza town of Brunico offers.

And if you want to know what Ötzi is all about, then make a trip to the South Tyrolean Archaeology Museum in the provincial capital of Bolzano.
