    It is best to start very early

    The Paternkofel is in the immediate vicinity of the famous Drei Zinnen, separated by the Paternsattel. The Paternkofel can be circled on a rewarding and popular tour from the Rifugio Lavaredo (2344 m) via the Paternsattel (2454 m) to the Dreizinnenhütte (2405 m) and back over the Büllelejoch (2528 m). For sure-footed and vertigo-free mountaineers with some climbing ability, there is the possibility of reaching the Paternkofel through a tunnel, over a suspension bridge or over iron ladders on the old climbing systems from the First World War, which were repaired in 1974/75. The easier but not easy climbs unite on the Gamsjoch, from where the Innerkofler-De-Luca via ferrata, named in honor of Sepp Innerkofler and his opponent Piero de Luca, leads through partly vertical walls to the summit.

    Great peaks with top panoramic views. Approach but only two via ferratas with appropriate equipment and experience possible. In the season and on weekends, it is regularly very crowded up here and it is at the key points traffic jam danger!
