Recommended excursions during your vacation at Plan de Corones
Mühlenweg (Mills Path)
On the exciting educational trail to the Terento Mills, you may discover the history and function of the mills – and why the Pusteria Valley is also known as the granary of South Tyrol. Halfway, you make a detour to the snack station Jennewein, and if you are in Terento during the culinary event s’Terner Schmelzpfandls, you may even see the mills in operation.
From the village centre of Terento a hiking trail leads to the legendary Earth Pyramids just above Terento. In 1837, a storm appears to have caused the break of a slope, and time and erosion have given the pyramids the shape they have today.
South Tyrol is a land of legends and fairy tales, thus, folk myths have it that the Lake Tiefrastensee emerged out of the wrath of the mighty dwarf Mute. Whether you want to believe this legend, is up to you – the crystal clear and deep blue waters will enchant you in any case.
