Passo di Monte Croce di Comelico (Kreuzbergpass) is an alpine pass at an altitude of 1,636 m a.s.l., located on the border between Trentino-Alto Adige and Veneto, between the municipalities of Sesto (to the west) and Comelico Superiore (to the east). It marks the border between the Dolomites (Sesto Dolomites) and the Carnic Alps and is crossed by the state road 52 Carnica, effectively representing the gateway to Comelico from Val Pusteria and vice versa.In the First World War it marked the border between Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In the Second World War the pass no longer marked the border between two states, but many bunkers were built there, part of the Vallo Alpino in South TyrolFrom the pass there are also many hiking trails that lead to well-known and popular destinations such as, for example, the Malga Alpe Nemes, the Malga Klammbach and the Prati di Croda Rossa and the homonymous mountain station of the cable car.
