Lagazuoi Open Air Museum

Still today the traces of the Mountain Warfare (1915-1918) on Mt. Lagazuoi are visible, united in a large open air museum

The 2,835 m high Lagazuoi, a peak in the Fanes Group in the Dolomites, was the scene of bitter battles between the Italian and the Austro-Hungarian forces during WWI. Often the mountain presented itself as a larger enemy than the enemy troops. Fortresses, war tunnels, trenches and machine gun posts were dug into the cliffs of sheer rock faces. Their remains are still visible, many of them have been cleared and restored in a cross-border project between Italy and Austria and made accessible again.

Hiking paths on Mt. Lagazuoi connect the single places, constituting a 5 km² large open air museum between the Passo di Falzarego and the Passo di Valparola mountain passes. It is divided into three areas: Cinque Torri (cannon batteries of the Italian troops), Sasso Stria (one of the most important Austrian positions) and the Tre Sassi Fortress where nowadays the equipment and the items of a soldier's life in the mountains are exhibited.

The Lagazuoi Open Air Museum is accessible in different ways: by the Lagazuoi Cable Car from the Passo di Falzarego, on the "Path of the Front-line" or on the more demanding "Kaiserjäger Path". The 20 km long hike "On the traces of the battle front", however, starts at the Passo di Falzarego mountain pass and leads to the area of Cinque Torri, partly along the "War Tunnel Path".
