The Drei Zinnen Dolomite region in South Tyrol

Monuments to eternity

Dolomites & Drei Zinnen

Prags, our holiday destination, is part of the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park, which borders the Sexten Dolomites to the east. There – in the midst of the “pale mountains,” as the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are also called – you will find maybe the most famous landmark in South Tyrol: the Drei Zinnen. This impressive massif is part of another nature park that bears its name. The striking, pointed rock pinnacles are the Große Zinne (2,999 m), which is framed on the left and right by the Westlichen Zinne (2,973 m), the Kleinen Zinne (2,857 m), and several smaller peaks. For climbers from all over the world, these unique rock towers are dream destinations. But hikers can also visit the Drei Zinnen up close, since they are easily accessible from the Zinnen Plateau – a wonderful circular hike is perfect for this.

The vast Dolomite plateau

PlÀtzwiese in the Pragser Tal

If you are looking for beautiful tours and summit joy right at your doorstep, the Pragser Dolomites are naturally always the right choice; their mightiest mountain, Hohe Gaisl (3,146 m), surpasses the Drei Zinnen in height and is considered a particularly demanding mountain for alpinists. An excellent view of Hohe Gaisl can be enjoyed from the PlÀtzwiese high plateau.
