How to reach the Plätzwiese in Prags

Just like the Three Peaks and Lake Prags, the Plätzwiese high plateau is one of the most visited places in the Dolomites. In order to preserve its particularity and to allow all the visitors to enjoy nature as quietly as possible, there are special traffic restrictions during the main season.

Framed by Dürrenstein and Hohe Gaisl, the Plätzwiese plateau is situated at around 2,000 meters above sea level in Prags. If you want to visit the idyllic high mountain pasture, you should inform yourself about the current regulations for access in summer and in winter.


Access with your car or motorbike

  • From 10 June to 3 November 2024, ascent to Plätzwiese is subject to a charge for a maximum of 100 cars – and it is possible until 10 am and from 3 pm. Departure is possible at any time. 
  • From 10 July to 10 September 2024 a traffic regulation applies for Prags. 
  • During this period, the Prags Valley can be reached from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm only by public transport, on presentation of an online reservation or a valid transit permit.
  • This means that from 10 July to 10 September 2024, also access to Plätzwiese is only permitted before 9:30 am and from 4 pm (again subject to a fee and for a maximum of 100 cars).  
  • Private buses and camper vans are not allowed to pass through all year round.


Access with the bus shuttle

  • From 9 June to 3 November 2024 there is a bus connection to Plätzwiese.
  • Bus line 443 starts in Welsberg or Toblach/Niederdorf and takes visitors directly to Plätzwiese. 
  • Online booking is not necessary
  • Tickets are available on the bus (payment in cash only). The tariffs and tickets of the public transport service are valid. Mobilcards and guest cards are valid, too.


On foot or by bike

  • Those who like hiking or biking, can reach the Plätzwiese high plateau in Prags at any time and without restriction.
  • On foot, for example, you can start directly at the “Brückele” car park and hike along the wide gravel path to the Plätzwiese (walking time approx. 2-2.5 hours). The trail starting in Schmieden is somewhat longer (walking time approx. 3.5 hours).
  • Cyclists reach the high plateau from Schmieden via trail no. 37 in about 2.5 hours, covering approx. 800 metres in altitude.
