Independent of whether you are traveling in winter, summer, spring or fall - the surroundings of the Unterrainerhof are attractive in any season.
Even during the hottest time of the year the temperatures remain moderate thanks to the relatively high altitude
of the Pustertal valley - tropical nights are very rare.
The outdoor pool facility in Bruneck with its 50-meter-pool, a kids pool, a beautiful lawn for sunbathing and a beach volley facility is the ideal spot to stay during fair-weather times. On the other hand, the Cron4 in Reischach offers the perfect pampering programme during bad weather with its huge sauna world, massage programme and many different types of swimming pools.
Above all, the fantastic landscape of the Pustertal valley provides unique experiences for everyone.
The numerous mountain huts and pastures await you on the myriads of well-kept and very well marked hiking paths. For who wants to get higher up there are many famous as well as unknown and more silent mountains, peaks, trails, ridgeways and multi-day tours in close proximity.
Information about the system of pathways and a huge range of tour proposals are available online.
If you prefer being on your way by bike there is a dense network of bike paths in South Tyrol. In addition, many farms and alpine huts can be reached by bike. There is also a bicycle rental service next to the train station, which is located 5 minutes away by foot.
The cold season brings specially on the mountains, but also in the valleys, lots of snow, which transforms the Pustertal valley in an amazing snow-covered picture-perfect landscape many times during winter.
The biggest connected skiing area Kronplatz has guaranteed snow cover and is located a 10-minutes-drive away. Within an hour's drive there can be found many other skiing areas, for example the Sella Runde in the middle of the Dolomites, an Unesco World Heritage Centre.
In some of the skiing areas you can find also sled runs, like the longest sled run of South Tyrol near the Speikboden. In addition many alpine huts are opened during winter and provide a sled run from the hut down to the parking area.
Who wants to climb up the mountains also during winter there are many hiking paths up to the alpine huts
and mountain peaks, that can be walked also when covered with snow by using snow shoes or touring skis.
Likewise in the valley there exist excellent possibilities to move along with skis. The two closest cross country ski track areas in Reischach and Pfalzen are located a 10 minutes drive away and are with a high guarantee of snow. More than ten other villages within one hour's drive provide beautiful cross country ski tracks in the middle of the forest and snow covered meadows.
