You can always count on the winter temperatures in the Kronplatz region. When the days get shorter, the natural outdoor skating areas in and around Bruneck freeze solid. Young and old alike sharpen up the ice skates and hang out in Reischach at the Eislaufring until well into the night, or else at the Eislaufplatz. Within the immediate vicinity of Bruneck, there are also natural outdoor skating areas: in S. Lorenzo-St. Lorenzen, Gais, and Falzes-Pfalzen.
Fans of ice hockey will enjoy gliding over the ice on which the HC Pustertal trains: at the Ice Skating Arena in Bruneck. And anyone who would like to send the puck into the goal with a stick themselves is well advised to try out the man-made skating rink in St. Georgen, at the entrance to the Ahrntal valley.
Sending the heavy stones sliding over the natural ice, anxious waiting, who gets to shoot next? In Reischach and St. Georgen, there is an ice surface reserved for curling. Snow-covered fir trees reach all the way to the banks of the pond. A few low-hanging branches have frozen in the ice. Nature-lovers and romantics will love the Laghetto d’Issengo-Issinger Weiher in sun-drenched Pfalzen. All of the ice skating areas offer ice skate rental.
