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.
