    Hike en route the dream-path Munich to Venice

    by The_Capricorn Updated Jan 21, 2015

    The dream path Munich to Venice is a long-distance route that leads from the Marienplatz in Munich to St Mark's Square in Venice.
    The German Ludwig Graßler is the founder of the route, he described in 1974 for the first time the entire route in a book.

    Today Graßler's route is one of the most popular long-distance hiking trails in Europe.

    There are plenty of published information and guide books about the route available, but unfortunately, only in German language like Traumpfad München-Venedig which I used as planning base for the route segment Northern Dolomites from Niedervintl to Alleghe. In addition to it I could obtain very helpful information from the tourist office in Niedervintl. Also you can obtain there all telephone numbers and email addresses of the huts along the route.
    Reservations of the huts are very advisable.
    The route itself I did only by my handy GPS in addition to a sufficient scaled paper hiking map of the region.
    If you like to make the tour, the pre-conditions are sure-footed, good general condition, experience in high alpine terrain and good equipment/clothing. The backpack should not weigh packed more than 12 kg, sleeping bag is mandatory on the huts.

    If you have time and enough motivation:
    The total hiking route is approx. 580 km long, 25,330 meters climbing, 25,850 m descent and about 200 hours of walking in approx. 30 days

    Dolomites in Winter (3)

    by lotharlerch Updated Apr 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The original name of the Dolomites Monti Pallidi (Pale Mountains) is valid as long as the sun stands high on the sky but at sunrise and sunset the pale rocks get fantastic colours which change within minutes, a wonderful spectacle, called "enrösadüra" in the archaic Ladin (Rhetoromanian) language which is still spoken all around the Sella

    Dolomites in Winter

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Dolomites are attractive all the year round. Most main roads are kept open all the Winter but be prepared that after strong snowfall and wind some roads might be closed for some time due to the danger of avalanches.

    Santo Stefano

    by ludogatto Written Mar 5, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Santo Stefano is small, but the road of the Cadore is a pretty place for one short pause. The church in the main public square reflect the syle of this zone.
    Here you will be able also to find good stores of native produce, like the speck, the mountain butter or the local grappa . Also in this zone there are some glasse outlet, profit by this occasion cause the prices are truly a bargain!

    Langkofel group

    by lotharlerch Updated May 19, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The picture shows the Langkofel (Sasslonch in Ladin, Sassolungo in Italian) from the Sella pass which is one of the most visited passes in the whole Dolomites. The Langkofel itself is the right peak while the top of the left one, the Plattkofel, can even be reached on skis, but from the other side. of course!

    The whole area offers incredible hikes in Summer and Autumn and great skiing in Winter and Spring

    Cortina d'Ampezzo and surroundings

    by lotharlerch Updated May 19, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cortina is the biggest village in the Dolomites and its most famous summer and winter resort (was hosting the Winter Olympics in 1956). It is embedded in a marvellous landscape with gentle high alpine pastures and larch forests to which the often more than 3000 m high mountrains form the perfect vertical contrast

    A walk around Drei Zinnen - Tre Cime

    by lotharlerch Updated May 19, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is seen as a must by most visitors and it is very easy. From Misurina lake a quite expensive toll road leads to Rifugio Auronzo at the southern foot of this most famous group of the Dolomites. From the parking (with hundreds of cars under the Summer season) an easy path leads you around the group (walking time about 3 to 3,5 hours, but it takes much longer due to the innumerable nice photo stops. Most people do the hike counterclockwise.

    The both dominating mountains here are the Langkofrel group and the Sella massif . Only a few minutes walk away from the hundreds of cars parking around the Sellajoch one can see great and quite unperturbed sceneries.

    Desde el lago Misurina se coge una carretera de Peaje que nos deja en el Parking del Refugio Auronzo. Desde Ahi se hace un recorrido a pie muy sencillo aunque algo empinado que rodea las tres cimas de Lavaredo.
