Punta Penia Cabin

And now we come to Punta Penia, Marmolada’s summit at 3343 m, the highest peak in the Dolomites. Whether you reach it by crossing the glacier, by taking the via ferrata or by climbing the south face, one thing is for sure: you will have an extraordinary experience and enjoy a spectacular view from the roof of the Dolomites, admiring unhindered the Alps from Austria, to the plain between Treviso, Padova and Venice up to the sea. The colours and lights of the sunset, of the sunrise and the sea of fog from which only a few of the highest peaks emerge like islands, will remain etched in your memory.
On the roof of the Dolomites, you can have experiences that you won't find in the valley.!

The Punta Penia Cabin has a long history: it was built by the mountain guide Giovanni Brunner from Alba di Canazei in the late 1940s, adapting an Austrian garrison of World War I, placed at the top of the Marmolada, and reusing the materials brought to the peak by soldiers from 1915-1917.
