Situated at an altitude of 2,275 metres, the Via Artis is the highest located open-air art gallery in the world! This 6 km circular trail features 6 works of local artists which you can enjoy alongside the impressive backdrop of the Dolomites and the main Alpine divide. As they are crafted out ofthe damaged wood caused by storm Vaja in 2018 as well as the massive snow load damages in 2019, the exhibited artworks represent a further contribute to our endeavours towards a more sustainable future. Moreover, at its three access points, the Via Artis provides you with interesting insights into three topics of major importance for the Kronplatz/Plan de Corones: the Kronplatz military trail, protection of our flora, our alpine pastures in between tradition, tourism and economy.

Easy, three-hour hike around the top of Mount Kronplatz, suitable for all hiking levels.
