Plätzwiese high plateau

A jewel in the Dolomites

The Plätzwiese high plateau is a pasture at an altitude of 2,000 meters, with overwhelming panoramic views of the nearby mountains Dürrenstein peak and Hohe Gaisl peak 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-Prags this jewel, surrounded by majestic peaks, has retained its unspoilt nature.

There is plenty on the Plätzwiese high plateau to keep photographers content in summer and winter. The seasons come and go and the meadows change from green to colourful, to brown and finally to white.

Plätzwiese high plateau - something for every taste
In the summer the pasture is a magnet for hikers, Nordic walkers and bikers.
In winter you can discover the high plateau on touring skis, snowshoes or simply by walking through the snow covered landscape.
