The massif of the Dürrenstein is hiked over the long, steadily rising south side and is a very promising summit of the Pragser Dolomites. Shortly after the Hotel an der Plätzwiese, turn left onto trail 40, which leads to the summit. There is always a fantastic view of Hohe Gaisl, Tofana and Monte Cristallo. A bit higher and already in the rocky areas you can see for the first time the tips of the Drei Zinnen. If the view falls on the near summit cross, it is again somewhat exposed, but secured by chains and wire ropes, down again and then reached the summit cross after a few meters. From here you can now also overlook the entire Sextener Dolomites.
