Getting there

Leave the motorway at Klausen/Chiusa. Follow the state street of Brenner/Brennero (SS12) in direction of Bozen/Bolzano or Waidbruck/Ponte Gardena. After ca. 6 km you arrive Waidbruck/Ponte Gardena and from that point you have to take the slip road in the right direction (there are also an information sign with Barbian/Barbiano on it). Follow the street and after ca. 4 km you will arrive at Barbian/Barbiano. For the Huber Kreuz you have to follow the street and after the village is a street on the right, which goes to the parking place.
