Altprags / Braies Vecchia

The small village of "Altprags" / „Braies Vecchia“ is located about 5 km from the centre of Prags / Braies in the direction of Plätzwiese high plateau. In the midst of untouched meadows and forests, this place is the perfect starting point for hikes of all levels of difficulty. On the spring path you can teach your children about the importance of water, hike over the Buchsenridl to the rustic Putzalm hut or enjoy the view of the Dolomite peak "Sarlkofel". Doesn't that sound fantastic?
