It is our landmark, our heart, our local mountain, our pacemaker: here in Olang, the Kronplatz shapes the valley and its people and offers an amazing natural arena in winter and summer. Whether MTB or e-bike tours, riding technique, training or freeride, there is the right offer for everyone. From Olang it's not only directly into nature, but also directly up to the Kronplatz, with a many tour & trail variations through the forest slopes and up to the sun-drenched crest of Olang's local mountain.
The idyllic location of Olang at the first foothills of the Dolomites, promises you a unique MTB experience. In the Kronplatz Bike Park, 18 routes are waiting to be discovered and tested: adrenaline-packed descents are guaranteed. Geiselsberg (called Sorafurcia in Italian and Ladin), one of the four fractions of Olang is situated at 1,350 metres directly on the eastern flank of the Kronplatz.
Among the numerous tours and trails, there is something for every skill level - e-mountain bikers and mountain bikers for fun will also find optimal conditions here. Because on the flank of the Kronplatz life proceeds at a different pace, serenity & enjoyment are more important than competitive altitude chases and downhill action. Maximum speed is not that important when you can have the maximum flow.
Get up, have a hearty breakfast and off you go! Across a small piece of forest through the valley floor directly to the new cable car from Gassl and up to the summit in no time. And then, the moment of truth: which of the three sides will you choose today? Up here at Kronplatz you have the sweetest agony of choice between the Bruneck side - technically very demanding with the rewarding final destination of Bruneck, the Furkelpass flank or through dense forest and sunny meadows back downhill towards Olang - medium level, great flow. This simply puts the crown on your MTB holiday.
Young MT-bikers also experience Trail & Nature around Olang. On the first part of the flowing Gassl Trail, kids, teens and beginners can gain their first real trail experience. It starts directly at the Kronplatz mountain station and down to the middle station of the cable car Olang 1+2. This first trail section is easy (blue) and can also be easily ridden by younger mountain bikers.
Kids and teens can also gain great experience at the MTB practice area of the Kids Area Summer: a varied activity area for the whole family, where fun is guaranteed. And if you forgot your helmet or your protector at home, or if you want to try out a new mountain bike, the two bike shops and bike rentals in Mittelolang and Oberolang are the place to go.
