Kiens - your holiday paradise in South Tyrol
The Kronplatz/Plan der Corones holiday region
Welcome to Kiens at the Kronplatz/Plan der Corones region!
Right in the middle of the green, romantic Puster Valley, embedded in mountains, lush meadows, crystal-clear mountain lakes and snow-capped summits, you will find the village of Kiens with its 2,600 inhabitants. At an altitude of 780 metres above sea level, only 12 minutes from Bruneck/Brunico and 20 minutes from Brixen/Bressanone, your holiday dreams come true! Tips about Kiens and its surrounding area:
- The Kiens/Chienes parish is one of the oldest in the Puster Valley. During the Peasant’s War, it was a place for Anabaptist groups to meet. The Kiens/Chienes gunmen made a name for themselves during the mountain Isel battles in the Tyrolean Freedom war.
- If you are in need of some refreshment: dive into the Issing/Issegno Pond! It’s a bathing lake.
- Dwarf pine oil distillery and the Bergila Herbal Gardens between Kiens/Chienes and Issing/Issegno. More than 70 herbs and spices with healing power are grown in a biological cultivation. Learn more about how natural remedies can help! More about Bergila
