Turn-by-turn directions

From Oberwielenbach (1335 m; a good road up from Percha) start from the church following trail no. 16; a short climb to the Wielenbach beck and at the other side crossing the grassland and forest slopes, sometimes level, sometimes gently climbing, in a southerly direction out to Platten/Plata (approx. 1400 m). Now follow trail no. 16A on the grassland ridge and up to the Nockerhöfen farms, then continue towards farm Höllerhof as far as the left hand turn of the farm access road. Here at the sign for the “Earth Pyramids” turn right and follow the good trail through a meadow up to the pyramids (approx. 1500 m).

Return route: from the earth pyramids go back to the Höllerhof access road, now follow the marked “Panoramic trail” westwards through a woody valley down to the farm road that crosses it and along this almost level traversing the woody slope north westwards to the Wielenbach beck and back to the starting point.

Getting there

A22 motorway exit Brixen, follow the indications for Val Pusteria/Pustertal valley and go on for 32 km till Perca/Percha, then turn left and follow the indications to Vila di Sopra/Oberwielenbach.
