The trail on the Plätzwies/Prato Piazza offers stunning views of some famous peaks of the Dolomites.


This probably is one of the most unique and beautiful trails in all the region. And since it runs mostly over 2000 meter (6000 feet) above sea level, it is regarded also as an excellent training ground by professional athletes.
