About the mountain refuge

The mountain refuge Sennes, 2126 m, is located in the Fanes-Senes-Braies National Park and offers a wide panorama over some of the most beautiful peaks of the Dolomites: Croda Rossa (3146 m) (Hohe Gaisel), Cristallo (3221 m), Sorapis (3205 m) und Tofana (3243 m).

“Leave the footpaths, immerse in the environment and in the silence, walk slowly, far away of the daily thoughts and discover the treasures of our mountains.”

Managed by Mr.& Mrs. Palfrader Erich and Cilla.



The Sennes refuge was built by the Palfrader family “Corjel” between 1937 and 1939. It was inaugurated in the 40’s and since then it has been always open, in summer as well as in winter. 1962 was the year of great changes: it was found a spring below the Col de Riciogogn peak, at 2550 m, a pipe of nearly 4 km was layed, an electric generator and a heating system with a wood boiler were installed.
1968 militaries razed a runway of 450 m and at the same time it was built the street that since then makes the Sennes lodge reachable to jeeps. 1985 the hut was enlarged and a lot of works were carried out until it became how you see it today.
