Rifugio Toni Demetz - Forcella  Sassolungo

The RIFUGIO TONI DEMETZ is located in the heart of the Dolomites, majestically embedded between the peaks of the SASSOLUNGO
and the CINQUE DITA (5 Fingers) on the high rocky pass of the FORCELLA DEL SASSOLUNGO. We are here in midst of an ancient coral
reef where more than 220 million years ago flowed the Tethys Sea. The RIFUGIO TONI DEMETZ is the ideal starting point for many trekking,
hiking and rock climbing routes. Also a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature and the breathtaking and charming scenery
of the Dolomites declared as a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site in 2009. In 1954, the mountain guide Giovanni Demetz wanted to build
here a refuge, a shelter from wind, rain and snow, a restoring place where you can admire the surrounding landscape from.
With great passion and dedication, Enrico Demetz, Giovanni's youngest son, still runs the refuge together with his wife and daughters.

To reach the RIFUGIO TONI DEMETZ, you can start from Santa Cristina (Monte Pana), Alpe di Siusi and Passo Sella and walk along
beautiful paths. The last option, Passo Sella, also allows you to easily reach the refuge by a cablecar, indeed rather dated,
but the calm pace gives you the opportunity to enjoy the surrounding mountains and beneath you the flowers and just maybe
a marmot in the Cittá dei Sassi (literally City Of Rocks, you will see why!) The cablecar is open daily from 8.15 am to 4.45 pm.
The restaurant and the bar of the RIFUGIO TONI DEMETZ offer the typical dishes of the traditional Tyrolean cuisine, all freshly cooked,
and delicious homemade cakes.* In one of the numerous warm and clear summer-days of the Dolomites you can combine pleasures
of sight and taste as from our terrace, comfortably seated and relaxed, you can not only admire the landscape but also watch the
efforts of the rock climbers, scaling the surrounding walls eager to feel the breath of the rocks and finally to conquer the peak.
*We also offer gluten-free and/or lactose-free cakes.
