The Val Gardena Railway, which was built during the time of the former Austrian Monarchy to transport war materials from Chiusa to Plan, ceased operation in 1960. What remains is a lovely panorama road which connects the three Val Gardena towns and enjoys immense popularity with both walkers and runners alike. The route is suitable for both a short, gentle morning jog as well as for a long, extended run.
