The Huts History

malga prato piazza dolomites

Our hut was built in 1982 and is owned by the farmers of Braies, Villabassa and Monguelfo. Every summer, they have the right to bring their 350 head of cattle onto the 700 acres of the pasture at Plätzwiese.

Up until the summer of 2008 the hut was used exclusively as a place for the shepherds to stay. From 2008 a licence was granted to us to operate our restaurant.

Up until 1982 the shepherds stayed in smaller huts in the area, which are now mainly used by the local branches of Alpine Clubs from Villabassa / Monguelfo.
