Rifugio Passo Santner & Alberto 1° (2734 m)

Breathtaking sunrise and sunset views.

We went a direct hiking road, with a side-trip by Via Ferrata Catinaccio D’Antermoia (below). 

Alternative and longer way is to go via Rifugio Antermonia (2497 m) by via ferratta Laurenzi: C/D. Overnight at the hut €80.

Right about the Alpe di Tires, there is another via ferrata Maximiliansteig 4B: 2:15 

Rifugio Alpe di Tires / Tierser-Alpl-Hütte (2440 m)

The trail starts at Lift ↑ Paolina 8:30-17:30

There are two huts close to each other:

Santnerpass Hüte (2734 m) (~€100) is a modern and beautiful, yet more expensive. It was built by owners of the tomorrow's Tierser-Alpl-Hütte. There is a beautiful sunset there.

Rifugio Alberto 1° / Gartlhütte (2621 m) (from €65) is a classic hut well positioned for climbers with a very kind and helping staff. They did not have a problem to serve us a meal even quite late.

The huts can be accessed either by a via ferrata or alternatively by a 4.5 h hike around via Rifugio Vajolet.

What's nearby:

There is a bus from the bottom station of the funicular (Rifugio Passo Sella) but there was a road construction, so we continued by the Panoramaweg down to the next closest bus station Canazei. Impianti Belvedere
