Around the Three Peaks

Fancy experiencing a real classic? Then set off on a circular hike around the world famous Three Peaks!

The Three Peaks reach loftily towards the heavens, like mountain obelisks that watch over the Hochpustertal in the eponymous nature park. Since time immemorial, the majestic rock peaks made mainly of dolomite rock have been regarded as the symbol of this region. On 26 June 2009, they were declared part of the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites  together with the other Dolomite peaks due to their unique scenic beauty and their geological and geomorphological significance.

The circular trail at the foot of this magnificent trio, consisting of the Grosse Zinne, the Westliche Zinne and the Kleine Zinne, is considered one of the most distinctive in all of the Dolomites. The three-hour hike on well-maintained trails is also suitable for less experienced hikers. The starting point is the Auronzohütte mountain hut at 2,320 metres above sea level. The trail leads to the Lavaredohütte mountain hut and then to the Paternsattel peak (2,452 m), featuring world-famous views of the north face. Our recommendation: Continue the hike towards the Dreizinnenhütte mountain hut. From there, a trail also leads to the "Lange Alpe," where the source of the Rienz river and the Zinnenseen lakes are located. It’s the ideal place for a wonderfully refreshing foot bath.
