Fall in love with Brixen’s local mountain
Plose, Brixen’s local mountain, is known as the gateway to the Dolomites – and for good reason: As you ascend, an awe-inspiring panorama opens up and accompanies you on your adventures in the skiing and hiking area. Just seven kilometres away from the city centre, you’ll find the valley station of Brixen’s adventure mountain, whose summit you can reach with the cable car some 11 months of the year. Look forward to a unique mountain experience with 300 days of sunshine a year and holiday experiences that take you from 560 to 2,542 metres above sea level!
Plose: your winter wonderland
Step off the cable car. Breathe deep. Enjoy. Once you arrive at 2,000 metres above sea level, you’ll discover a winter paradise with guaranteed snow, 40 kilometres of pistes, and a 360° panorama. When carving your turns down the southern slopes of Plose and Pfannspitz, you’ll have a fantastic view of the unmistakeable peaks of the Dolomites, while to the north, the peaks of the main Alpine ridge stand proud. A perfect day’s skiing ends with the descent to the valley: Ready for nine kilometres of skiing bliss on the legendary Trametsch?
Conquering the slopes makes you hungry. My tip: spare ribs at the Pfannspitz hut and sweet Germknödel dumplings at Rossalm. Plose indulgence doesn’t get much better than that!
Tracks in the snow and tobogganing fun
Plose in Brixen offers you perfect conditions for an idyllic winter hike. Snowshoeing fans and ski touring enthusiasts will find deep, unspoilt snow on the slopes of Gabler in Puez-Ortes/Puez-Geisler Nature Park. Meanwhile, tobogganers will simply adore the 10km-long RudiRun: On one of South Tyrol’s longest toboggan runs, you’ll conquer some 1,000 metres of elevation – fun for the entire family is guaranteed on your holidays in Brixen.
Plose: your hiking paradise
The ascent by cable car already gives you fantastic views of Brixen and surroundings, which is then surpassed by the panoramic views of Sasso Putia/Peitlerkofel, Odle di Eores/Aferer Geisler, and Odle di Funes/Villnösser Geisler once you reach the top. From the mountain station at 2,050 metres above sea level, you can begin your day of adventure on varied walking and hiking routes, such as the WoodyWalk experience trail. If you take the Pfannspitz cable car, you can even enjoy a three-peak tour of Plose, Pfannspitz, and Gabler without too much effort. You’re sure to find the perfect route for you on Plose near Brixen!
My summer tip: Enjoy one return trip per day with the Plose or Pfannspitz cable car free of charge with your BrixenCard!
