History of the mountaineer's house

The history book for Haus Santner was opened when Johann Santner first climbed the great Schlernszacken in 1888, alone and with rudimentary means - even if it took 80 years until the foundation stone of Haus Santner was laid.

Even 150 years after the first ascent, the spirit of Santner lives on its mountain and on other Dolomite figures.

When I was born in 1967, the Santnerspitze was for me just a name, and every house had to have a name. The fact that my parents was given the name Santner is pure coincidence and certainly not given by my father in view of the great climber.

As a boy, it was unconscious and not directly the goal to climb the Dolomites. in 1981 ,in my early years as a mountaineer, I climbed on the head of the the namesake of the house Santner. Since then I have climbed more than 50 times on the westernmost summit of the Dolomites.
