The Langkofel Group--also known by it's Italian name as the Gruppo Sassolungo--consists of 3 major summits: Grohmannspitze, Fuenffingerspitze, and the Langkofelspitze. The corresponding Italian names are Sasso Levante Grohmann, Punta della Cinque Dita, and Spallone del Sassolungo. A smaller but no less important summit is the Innerkoflerspitze, Campanile Innerkofler in Italian.
The massive group of mountains is the feature which dominates the Groednertal, or Val Gardena, and sits on the Northwest side of the Sella Pass. The view from Wolkenstein is overpowering to the first time visitor.
Trails encircle the massif, and spur trails allow access to the major Jochs, or Forcellas in Italian.
From the Groednertal, Wolkenstein is the major valley base, and Canazei from the East both provide access via the Sella Pass road.
Parking is available at the Sella Pass on the Wolkenstein side, although free spaces are difficult to obtain; there's paid parking available at the Sassolungo lift. (5 Euros, in 2014).
