This tour around the Plattkofel starts with a lift ride from Saltria to the Williamshütte. From there it is a moderately steep climb to the Fassajoch at around 2300 m and to the Plattkofel hut. At the refuge we then follow the Friedrich-August-Weg to the east. This mountain promenade between the Catinaccio and the Sella Group used to be a shepherd's path and was widened at the beginning of the 20th century at the suggestion of King Friedrich August of Saxony, who was a fan of the Dolomites, by the then Alpine Club section of the Alpe di Siusi. The well-maintained hiking trail leads past the Sandro Pertini hut, the Friedrich August hut, the T. Salèi hut and the Sella Pass house, each of which invites you to take a break with South Tyrolean specialities. From the Sella Pass you then climb up a narrow path or take the cable car to the Toni Demetz Hut. We then pass the Langkofel hut and hike back to the starting point at the northern foot of the Plattkofel.
