From the parish church, follow the paved road in westward direction up to the Hotel Alpen Tesitin. Once there, you have managed most of the elevation gain of your winter hike. Now continue on road number 21 through narrow stretches of wood, the Teuffental, and pass handsome farms scattered wide on meadows and fields until you reach the Feichter Farm at 1377 m. At the edge of the forest there is an excellent opportunity for resting and observing the upper part of the Puster Valley. Particularly impressive is the skyline of the Dolomites that forms the background of the seeming joining villages of Welsberg, Prags, Niederdorf, Toblach, Innichen and the Sexnter Valley.
