The Rifugio Re Alberto (in German Gartlhütte) is an alpine hut dating back to 1929 located in the Catinaccio Group in the Dolomites, in the municipal area of Tires, in South Tyrol, at 2,621 meters above sea level.

Rifugio Re Alberto History

In 1910 the gorge of the Santner pass began to be equipped with iron pegs and wire ropes to facilitate access to the Vajolet basin, where Marino Pederiva from Fassa erected a wooden hut in 1929. The famous mountain guide of Pera di Fassa, Tita Piaz, then bought that first hospitalization, and in 1933 he built the Gartlhütte or King Albert I refuge in homage to the famous Belgian king who was making his Dolomite climbs alongside the "devil of the Dolomites".
The refuge was then enlarged and subsequently renovated a couple of times until it reached its present appearance.
