The "Zwölferkofel" or the Three Peaks... Both make our wanderer's heart beat faster. And both rock formations are within reach on this hike. The effort is worth it and competent hut hosts reward you with a hearty South Tyrolean hut meal.

Turn-by-turn directions

First go by bus or car (or 45 minutes on foot) into the "Fischleintal" valley to the parking area near the Dolomitenhof Hotel (1,454 m). From there it is an almost flat walk to the "Talschlusshütte" hut (1.548 m) where you turn right onto trail no. 102/103, going a short distance up the" Altensteintal" valley to a fork in the trail. Turn left here and continue on trail no. 103 high above the floor of the Bacherntal valley until you reach the Zsigmondyhütte hut (2.235 m; great views of the Elfer and Zwölfer mountains). The path continues westwards on the alpine ridgeway marked no. 101 across rocky ground, gently uphill in places, to the Oberbachernjoch ridge and then turn right to the Büllelejochhütte hut (2.528 m). Continue on a short distance to the Büllelejoch (2.522 m), then steeply down the scree on the north side before hiking along a lovely, flat trail with views of the Dreischusterspitze peak until you reach the large Dreizinnenhütte mountain (2.438 m). 102 over the Bödenalm Alpine pasture with the two upper lakes and then through the remote and beautiful Altensteintal valley, dominated in the south by the mighty bulk of the Einserkofel mountain. Continue down to the Talschlusshütte hut in the Fischleintal valley and back to the starting point.
This tour is a true classic and an absolute must for any visitor to the Sesto/Sexten region; an opportunity to stand in front of the north faces of the most dramatic mountains in the Dolomites.
Starting point: Parking area at the Dolomitenhof hotel (1.454 m)
Highest point: 2.528 m
Tip: A short detour from the "Büllelejochhütte" hut to the summit cross of the "Oberbachernspitze" is definitely worthwhile!

Question from S. und V.  · July 15, 2020 · Community
worum läuft man die Tour am besten, erst über die drei Zinnen-Hütte oder erst über die Zsigmondy-Hütte?

Also ich würde sagen, zuerst Drei Zinnen Hütte und dann über bülellejoch Hütte zur Zsigmondy ist weniger anstrengend als umgekehrt. Vom Fischleintal zur zsigmondy gehts lange richtig bergauf

Diese Tour ist ein Muss für alle, die in dieser Region sind und die Sextner Berge erleben wollen. Wie beschrieben zieht sich die Wanderung aber doch recht hin. Frühes los gehen ist zu empfehlen.
