The Bindelweg Path

The Bindelweg Path is the classic hiking-path in Fassa Valley. The trail is considered to be one of the most beautiful ones in the Dolomites and runs on panoramic hillsides between Mount Marmolada and Sella.

In former times this was the only trading-trail between Fassa Valley and Cordevole Valley. The trail is today the same as hundred years ago, it is easy to hike and an absolutely must for nature lovers!
