The Sennes Hütte
The private mountain shelter Sennes is a private mountain hut in the Dolomites and has been run by the Palfrader family for many years. It is a very popular day trip destination and a great touring base for hikers, mountaineers and mountainbikers, or simply for experiencing a few unforgettable days in the amazing Dolomite landscape!

The mountain shelter is located on the Sennes plateau in the Fanes-Sennes-Prags (Fanes-Sennes-Braies) Nature Park and offers extensive panoramic views of some of the most beautiful Dolomite peaks: the Hohe Gaisl (3146 m), the Cristallo (3221 m), the Sorapis (3205 m) and the Tofane (3243 m).
