Wonderful snowshoe hike above Toblach/Dobbiaco. The Lachwiesen hut is known for its traditional food and for this is worth a visit.

IMPORTANT: Before starting any ski tour/snowshoe excursion, you must check the weather conditions and danger avalanches report (https://avalanche.report), asking also experts (alpine guides etc.).
