No access

No access (by car)

In Pfelders (Passiria Valley) cars have no access to the village (with a few exceptions).
(There is a large parking lot just before).


  1. That's cool (!)l, if not entirely convenient.

  2. When I saw the image I thought it was something seriously wrong with the church, so I am pleased I read your text. I guess it is smart to have a car park outside, when the streets are narrow, and too difficult to find space for all the cars in the village. HAPPY SUNDAY !

  3. I'm all for that policy! Some of our cities have areas which are off-limits to cars and trucks, etc., and those are wonderful places to walk and shop! I'd like this village a lot, I'm sure!

  4. I like pedestrian areas, and I hope they will respect the sign. Here it doesn't happen often...

  5. I guess I'll have to explore on foot. One of my favorite things to do.

  6. It does make sense for some of these old towns, built so long before the age of cars and not particularly well suited to them.

  7. That means no access? How are we supposed to guess that?

  8. With a red circle in the middle it could be the Royal Air Force insignia. Interesting sign.

    You asked about grain stored on the ground. Often when the fall harvest comes in the grain elevators aren't large enough to hold it all, so they temporarily store the grain in giant piles on the ground. These will be moved as soon as possible as it is not a good way to store grain. Often grain is loaded onto rail road cars as soon as enough cars become available.
