center of the village St. Peter

That is the ramp up to the Wurzjoch from the Eisack valley (Ital. Val d’Isarco) side and we have reached the little village St. Peter. You end up on the market place and need to check out the way until you notice that you have to take the little gap between the church and the house here.

above Monte di Funes

We have left St.Peter and the pass road runs smoothly uphill on the west side of the Wurzjoch, a little bit narrow - so watch out - through green meadows. Only some little woods cross your way uphill.
