Length: 6 km, height difference: 144 m, grade of difficulty: blue. These are the key factors for one of the finest and most unusual cross-country routes in South Tyrol, the Prato Piazza circular route. The varied and really easy to master cross-country course on Prato Piazza in the Braies Valley treats active winter holidaymakers to idyllic peace and breathtakingly beautiful views of some of the most famous Dolomite peaks: Picco di Vallandro, Croda Rossa, Monte Cristallo and Tofane will be your companions right to the end of winter when you join the other cross-country skiers on Prato Piazza. A winter holiday in Braies is that close to nature - a dream in white!

Apart from Prato Piazza, the Braies Valley awaits you with other cross-country trails that can be reached easily and quickly from Hotel Trenker in Braies. One route goes up to the fabulous Lake Braies, the Pearl of the Dolomite lakes.

The Braies Vecchia (3.5 km) and Ferrara (2.5 km) circular cross-country routes have a height difference of just 20 metres, which is good news for beginners.
