Around the Sasso Lungo Group/Langkofelgruppe, you will find an outstandingly beautiful high-mountain trail. The route requires a little stamina, but leads without any particularly steep ascents to the Sasso Piatto/Plattkofel and Sasso Lungo/Langkofel.
The hike begins at the mountain station of the Florian lift and leads over a fairly steep, gravelly path to the Rifugio Sassopiatto/Plattkofelhütte hut. From here, take the Federico Augusto/Friedrich-August path towards the Passo Sella/Sellajoch (trail no. 557) which leads, with no great elevation difference, over the southern slopes under the imposing walls of the Sasso Piatto Group to the Federico Augusto hut and on to the Passo Sella. The route passes through the rocky labyrinth of the “Città dei Sassi”/ “Steinernen Stadt” (Eng. “City of Stones”) (trail no. 526) and on to the Rifugio Comici hut. A fairly rocky descent takes us down to the valley basin and alongside larch and Swiss pine woods back up to the basin of the Sasso Lungo/Langkofel cirque, where the climb to the Sasso Piatto hut branches off. Follow signposts for trail no. 527 towards the Sasso Piatto hut, which takes you behind the Piz da Uridl and back to the set-off point.
