ahrntal.it: "Of the more than 80 mountains over 3000m in altitude dominating the municipality of Valle Aurina-Ahrntal, many belong to the Zillertal Alps rising to the north, west and south-west, though some lie within the beautiful Rieserferner-Ahrn Nature Park. In this area there is water wherever you look. Thundering mountain streams, crystal-clear lakes and spectacular waterfalls draw hikers, mountaineers and mountain bikers. In winter the frozen waterfalls and lakes can be explored onsnowshoes or touring skis. Two ski resorts, Speikboden and Klausberg, are also easily accessible from this quiet corner of South Tyrol."
The Kronplatz: "Holiday Region in South Tyrol-Südtirol – the northernmost region of Italy – comprises a unique, astonishingly varied landscape mixture. It extends from the western part of the Val Pusteria-Pustertal valley through the Valle Aurina-Ahrntal as far as the Valle Anterselva-Antholzertal and the Valle di Casies-Gsieser Tal, and it reaches to the south as far as the Val Badia-Gadertal. While in the north, the high mountains of the main ridge of the Alps call out formountain climbers, mountain bikers, cable climbers, and in the winter for ski tourers, that also occurs in the southeast from the legendary, majestic “pale peaks” of the Dolomites, which are a UNESCO World Heritage site. And those who prefer to experience nature in a gentle way go on a voyage of discovery by strolling, hiking, or cycling through the Val Pusteria, exploring its side valleys with the villages so filled with tradition, or visiting Brunico-Bruneck."
