South Tyrol’s best mountain huts

The best way to conclude an excursion in the mountains of South Tyrol is to stop in one of the cosy mountain huts, where you can take a rest and taste typical hearty dishes of the region.

Here are some of the best and most beautiful mountain huts in South Tyrol:

Fodara Vedla - Sennes

Some people choose this refuge because of the delicious apple strudel, others because of the pretty dairymaids and still others because of the fantastic view to the nearby mountains. Undoubtedly, from the terrace in front of the hut you can enjoy a truly unique panorama, the culinary program is very tasty and you have also the possibility to stay overnight in some very comfortable rooms.

Open in winter and in summer

Refuge Friedrich August - Col Rodella

It is not always necessary to walk for hours to reach a shelter. For instance, this proves the refuge Friedrich August, which in fact is a more romantic hotel than a refuge, located at 2,300 m above sea level. In the traditional snuggery you can enjoy typical dishes or relax on the sunny terrace. Some rooms for an overnight stay are available, too.

The mountain shelter can be reached either on foot along the path starting in Latsch or by chairlift, which leads up to 1.200 m.
