The Sennes Hütte

The Sennes Hütte 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 ski-tourers, snow-shoe hikers and cross-country skiers, or simply for experiencing a few unforgettable days in the amazing Dolomite landscape!

The Sennes Hütte in the winter 
In the winter, the area around the Sennes Hütte is a true paradise for ski-touring enthusiasts. You can find everything from simple to difficult climbing here. The most impressive ascent is without doubt via the Kleine Gaisl and the southern flank of the Rote Wand.
Snow-shoe hikers will find beautiful and, if desired, completely safe snowshoe hiking routes around the hut. Although the ski routes are also suitable for snowshoe hikers, these are already in high-alpine terrain. Surrounding the hut is a cross-country skiing trail of around 3 kilometres, which is perfectly maintained for cross-country skiers. Tobogganists will find a fabulous toboggan run on the climb – the last section to the Pederü leads very steeply down into the valley! 

How to reach us in winter from:


  • Berggasthof Pederü: Travel by car or bus to the Berggasthof Pederü and take Trail No. 7 or Dolomite Peak Trail No. 1 up along the old military road and over the Sennes Plateau to the Sennes Hütte.

  • You can also climb the Col de Lasta on your way to the hut.
