To Plätzwiese high plateau

The Plätzwiese is a high plateau at an altitude of 2,000 meters, with overwhelming panoramic views of the nearby mountains Dürrenstein and Hohe Gaisl and from there to the more distant peaks of Monte Cristallo and Tofane. On the Plätzwiese High plateau visitors experience nature and peace. Not least because of its inclusion in the Nature Park Fanes-Senes-Braies this jewel, surrounded by majestic peaks, has retained its unspoilt nature.

The Plätzwiese high plateau can be reached by car before 10:00 and after 15:00 (subject to fees) up to and including 31 March. A shuttle bus runs between the Brückele car park and the Plätzwiese high plateau.
