- Experience the world-famous Lake Braies in the morning light
- Exclusive access to the jetty with aperitif
- The Museum of Mountain Photography LUMEN in the former mountain station of the Plan de Corones cable car
- Alpenglow with sunset drink in the Food Space & Restaurant AlpiNN by 3-star chef Norbert Niederkofler
You can expect a perfectly organized experience between nature and culture, with surprising insights and breathtaking views, which unites the Braies Lake and the high plateau of Plan de Corones.
Icy cold, glittering snow crystals, snow trickling down and animal tracks on snow-covered paths - at wintertime the landscape around the Braies Lake radiates a particularly peaceful fascination and beauty. You won't find any artificial attractions because nature itself provides plenty of spectacular highlights.
For those who want to explore the fascination of mountains in more depth- the LUMEN impressively tells the story of mountain photography from its origins to the present day and thus forms an exciting complement to the fantastic view.
In the morning you will be picked up directly from the hotel in a comfortable Premium Executive Van and drive to the Braies Lake. The morning is the most beautiful time to experience the lake. The morning calm, the slow awakening of nature and the soft light when the first rays of sunlight illuminate the Seekofel- the frozen lake shines in its full beauty. Enjoy the scenic beauty of the surroundings while sipping an aperitif on the jetty and watching the sun's rays glisten like tiny frozen sailboats. Only The Boutique Tours clients get exclusive access to the lake.
Panorama without end at Plan de Corones
After a leisurely stay at the lake, your driver will take you to Riscone, where you will take the cable car up to the Kronplatz. Whichever direction you look, you'll find yourself in the middle of mountain peaks. Take a few moments during the ride to pause and enjoy these views. Once at the top, there are plenty of places to stop for a delicious lunch.
Photography: Museum of Mountain Photography LUMEN
After lunch, you visit the Museum of Mountain Photography LUMEN, where the fascination for the mountain world finds a photographic home. The museum is in the former mountain station of the Plan de Corones cable car, designed by Bruneck architect Georg Mahlknecht and the star architect team Giò Forma from Milan. Here you can experience the history of mountain photography from its beginnings to the present on 1,800 m² and spread over 4 floors. You will see artistic works by photographers from all over the world, historical photographs, digital innovations, and temporary exhibitions.
Sunset in the mountains: magic moments
To conclude this unique experience, your Experience Manager will take you to AlpiNN, the Food Space & Restaurant of 3-star chef Norbert Niederkofler. Here the spirit of the mountains is so much in the air that it seems to enter from the windows and spread in the entire restaurant, where it merges with the colors and materials of the Alps; especially wood and stone, that are harmoniously combined both outside and inside. This is the perfect opportunity to process your experiences and impressions over a farewell drink. Enjoy every moment you spend here with your loved ones and be enchanted by the sunset as the alpenglow begins over the Alpine Ridge.
After these fantastic experiences on the mountain, your Experience Manager will accompany you back to the valley by cable car, where the driver is already waiting to take you back to the hotel.
