Plan de Corones and the giant seesaw

01 June 2021

In the mountains of Val Pusteria, on the famous Plan de Corones, the attraction of the summer is the giant swing. Every summer Plan de Corones (Kronplatz) opens this fun attraction, called Skyscraper, to fly through the Puster Valley sky.

Skyscraper is 15 metres high and is located on the summit of the Kronplatz at 2275 metres above sea level in the scenery of the South Tyrolean mountains. To get there you have to take the ski lifts (from Riscone, Passo Furcia or Valdaora) and reach the Plan De Corones refuge. The structure that holds the giant swing is a sturdy wooden structure, similar to that of a common swing, to which are secured steel cables that hold a harness. From the platform underneath the swing, you are tied to the harness and then hoisted with a winch to a height of 15 metres. The rope is then released and the swing begins. At this height you feel like you are flying through spectacular mountains with a view of the Zillertal Alps.

In addition to the giant swing, the area also offers skiing in winter and outdoor activities such as hiking, climbing and paragliding in summer.

The cost of the attraction is €13 per person.
