Around and up to the Plätzwiese
The Plätzwiese plateau in the rear left side valley of the Pragser Tal is somewhere to be experienced, especially in winter. You start at Brückele and go up to 1500 metres. Enthusiastic walkers take just an hour and a half to reach the Plätzwiesenhütte refuge (1991 metres), on foot, with snow shoes, with a toboggan for an exciting descent or with touring skis.
But you can also drive up to the car park just before the Plätzwiesenhütte refuge and from there you can either use your touring skis or snow tyres to go up to the very popular “Winter summit” of the Dürrenstein (2839 metres) or else you can take the easier walking route south to the Heimkehrerkreuz cross on the summit of the Strudelkopf (2307 metres). The route over the plateau to the Dürrensteinhütte refuge (2040 m) at the other end of the Plätzwiese is a good family excursion because it is suitable even for little children in buggies or for toboggans.
And if you want to try out your cross-country skis right at the start of the season when there is not yet any snow in the valleys you’ll discover a breathtaking winter paradise along the paths at 2000 metres above sea level that go past the quaint “Schupfn“ (wood huts).
We can always provide you with snow reports. We look forward to your call.
