Best Hikes to Rifugio Tabaretta / Tabarettahütte
  • Roberto Pasolini

    The stretch from Tabaretta to Payer is a truly enchanting segment of the trail. Not difficult, but very beautiful from the point of view of the landscape and the views it offers, from one side to the other, especially when you are on the ridge.

    Useful intermediate stage in the ascent from Solda al Payer and Mount Ortles.

    The Tabaretta refuge is a must for the ascent to Payer, starting from Sola. It is advisable not to stop but to arrive at the foot of the majestic Ortles glacier.

  • The Rifugio Tabaretta (hut) is located on Marlet hump at 2.556. It is a good starting point from Solda side to reach Rifugio Payer and Ortles glacier.

    From Tabaretta hut and then up to the Payer hut at above 3.000 mt. From here great view of the sourrandings and special one on the colossal Ortles the highest mountain of the area and one of the top of Italy with its 3.905 mt.

  • The Tabarettahütte is beautifully situated on a wide ridge on the north face of the Ortler. From here you have a wonderful view all the way to Lake Reschensee and the Ortler, practically on your "doorstep".

  • The Tabaretta Refuge (2,556 m) is an alpine refuge in the southern Rhaetian Alps, located on the crest of the Marlet hill, at the foot of the north-eastern slope of Punta Tabaretta. Being directly on the path that leads to the Payer Refuge, it is a popular destination for hikers starting from Solda and for mountaineers who want to try their hand at the Via Normale all'Ortles. From its terrace you can enjoy a beautiful view towards the north face of the highest peak in South Tyrol, towards the Tabaretta via ferrata, the Sesvenna group and the Austrian Alps.

    The refuge, owned by the Reinstadler family, is open from mid-June to mid-October and has a capacity of 40 beds. It was built at the end of the 19th century by Alois Schöpf, owner of the “Außerortlerhof” in Solda. The sisters Theresa and Berta took over the management until 1963, when the grandchildren took over. In 1974 the Tabaretta was sold to Waltraud Burger. A year later the “Ladum” cableway was built and is still needed today for refueling. Since 1980, with the help of Hans Reinstadler and his family, the refuge has been constantly renovated and expanded. Since 1987 the refuge has been managed by Klaus Reinstadler and his wife Andrea.

  • The climb is a bit difficult. But the view and the good food in the hut make up for everything.
