Turn-by-turn directions

In the center of the town, from the parking lot at the the Tourist Information Office (1,098m) follow the road to the railway station. On the other side of the rail track, at the sports center over a bridge, you will reach the bank on the south side of Pflerscher Gletscherbach glacier stream (a short distance above in the forest, there is a chalybeate spring). The promenade leads 1.5 km along the edge of the forest in the direction of the valley to the bridge on the Pflerscher Talstraße valley road. You cross over this bank on the right side of the stream, to a small forest and then you will reach Valminga in Fleres di Fuori, here the Maria-Hilf-Kapelle chapel lies on the Hauptstraße main road (bus stop). Return along the same route. For the return journey you can also go via the stations of the cross.
