Some of the most beautiful mountain bike routes for a biking holiday in the Kronplatz region:
- Around the Kronplatz: The route begins in Stefansdorf and leads to San Martino and Maria Saal, then comes to just before Enneberg. Then the steep climb to the summit of the Kronplatz begins, with two parts where you may need to get off and push, but there is a steep downhill from there and then head to Niederolang and back to Reischach via Bruneck and finally Stefansdorf.
- To the Dolomites route: Cycle via Maria Saal to San Vigilio, from there to Kreidesee and back again, or as an alternative you can cycle back to San Vigilio, climb the Furkel Pass and go via Geiselsberg and Olang and back to Reischach and Stefansdorf.
- Castles tour: Cycle to Michelsburg, then via Montal to Ehrenburg Castle, then uphill via Issing and Pfalzen, from there to Sonnenburg and back to Stefansdorf.
- Kronplatz trail: You can take the Kronplatz trail cable car to the Kronplatz, then via route 8 to the Moosener Kaser (open for business in summer), where you can stop for a bite to eat, then go back to Stefansdorf (1,450 elevation increase) via the Haidenberger Alm.
- To the Prags Dolomites: Via Reischach, Olang and Niederdorf cycle to the Prags Valley and from there to the northern Dolomites. From there head to Schluderbach and Toblach and via the cycle path back to Bruneck and Stefansdorf.
- To the earth pyramids: Go from Stefansdorf to Oberwielenbach and the earth pyramids, then back to Percha and via the cycle path to Bruneck and Stefansdorf.
