Sunrise hike on the Plattkofel peak with breakfast @ the Plattkofel mountain hut

Hikes/trips Seiser Alm
With its unusual shape, the Plattkofel peak is one of the most distinctive and best-known panoramic summits in the South Tyrolean Dolomites. At 2,955 m, the peak also boasts an absolutely spectacular 360° view of the Dolomites at sunrise.
At 3.45 am, a minibus will take you to the Zallinger mountain refuge, from where the fairly steep ascent leads to the Plattkofel mountain refuge; from here, the trail initially leads along a grassy ridge and later a very steep ascent over rocky terrain up to the Plattkofel summit, where you can experience a magnificent sunrise. After the descent along the same trail, you can enjoy a hearty breakfast at the Plattkofel mountain refuge before heading back to the set-off point.
