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.
Val Gardena is located in South Tyrol, right in the heart of the Dolomites. The valley can be reached using the Brenner Motorway (A 22), exit Chiusa. Following the well-marked roads, you should reach Ortisei in about 20 minutes, then S. Cristina and Selva Val Gardena.
