Holidays in the Pragser Tal valley

Impressive holiday backdrop between Pragser Wildsee lake and Dolomite rock towers 

Blue-green shimmering and located in the picturesque Pragser Tal valley is a unique natural gem: The Pragser Wildsee lake  is almost certainly one of the absolute highlights of holidays in South Tyrol’s Hochpustertal valley. In addition to strolls or boat trips on the Pragser Wildsee lake, hiking possibilities ranging from comfortable to sporty in the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park call to be discovered. For example, the  Plätzwiese high plateau with its overwhelming panoramic views of the surrounding Dolomite peaks. Educational farms, easy-to-explore ski areas, and many offers for families make the Pragser Tal valley an ideal choice for  a holiday with kids.

Sustainable Travel

Experiencing the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site in a responsible, eco-friendly and enjoyable way

You can visit the highlights of the Dolomites, the Pragser Wildsee lake, Plätzwiese high plateau, Fischleintal valley or the Three Peaks this summer by public transport, on foot or by bike. The initiative for environmentally responsible and sustainable travel is a boost for the World Heritage Site, as special places also need special protection.

The Pragser Tal valley is accessible from July to September from 9:30 am to 4 pm only by public transport, walking, cycling or upon presentation of a parking reservation or a valid transit permit; whereas from mid-September it is no longer necessary to book online to enter the Pragser Tal valley. You can reserve and pay for parking in the valley online. Have you booked an accommodation in  the Pragser Tal valley? Or do you plan on visiting a restaurant, store or other service providers there? An vehicle access permit will allow you access. This must be booked online at the following link. The €20 deposit is valid as a voucher for consumption.

In the period from July to mid-September, the same regulations apply to accessing the Pragser Wildsee lake as to entering the Pragser Tal valley. We suggest avoiding peak hours and scheduling your visit before 9 am or after 4 pm. From mid-September, the Pragser Wildsee lake is also accessible without an online booking. As an environmentally friendly and reliable alternative to the car, you can reach the Pragser Wildsee lake with the shuttle bus service (lines 439 and 442), which you can book and pay for online here.

With your own car, the Plätzwiese high plateau is accessible from June to mid-September before 9:30 am and from 4 pm (subject to fee). Reserve your parking space in Brückele/Ponticello here online . The public bus line 443  takes visitors directly from Welsberg/Monguelfo and Toblach/Dobbiaco-Niederdorf/Villabassa to the Plätzwiese high plateau. Reservations are not required for the public bus route.

As an alternative to the toll road, a shuttle bus service runs from Toblach/Dobbiaco to the Three Peaks or the Auronzohütte mountain hut from June to mid-October. There are no restrictions to visiting the Three Peaks and Auronzohütte mountain hut on foot or by bicycle. An online reservation with online payment is required for the shuttle bus for the entire period. You can buy any remaining tickets at the bus and train stations in Toblach. During the time when reservations are not required, tickets are only available at the Toblach bus and train stations or on the shuttle bus. Online purchases are not possible during this time.

From the end of June to the beginning of October, the Fischleintal valley can only be reached via the Sexten-Fischleintal shuttle bus (from Sexten/Sesto), on foot, by bike or - if you have a valid transit permit - by car. Reservation, transit permit and the Fischleintal car park  can be reserved online. No reservations are required for the Sexten-Fischleintal shuttle bus service. For visitors outside of Sexten, we recommend taking public line 446 from Toblach/Dobbiaco to Innichen/S.Candido.
