Dolomites hiking?

Hi all,

We're hiking in Austria for a week in late Agust and then we plan to visit Italy for 2 nights, driving from Innsbruck.
To see the the Dolomites for the first time.
Ideally we'd like to stay the 2 nights in different huts/refugios.
Please suggest a suitable itinerary and huts? moderate to hard hiking few hours a day and a cicruilar route would be ideal.
We'll be returning to Innsbruck.

Thanks

We're flying to and from Vienna, taking train to and from Innsbruck.
So we visit Dolomites, return the car at Innsbruck, train to Vienna, fly home.
Thanks, I was hoping you'd reply, I noticed your posts about the region

The most popular area in the Dolomites is 3 Zinnen/3Cime del Lavaredo. In 2 days only you can't do much more.
But you don't need a car for hat. Take a train from Innsbruck to Franzensfeste/Fortezza and a connecting one from there to Toblach/Dobbiaco and you are in he heart of everything. 444_20240601.pdf

From Toblach/Dobbiaco you can easily reach Vienn with only 1 train change thanks to the Interciity (with dining car and family car) Lienz dp 15.53 - Vienna ar 21.36, via the scenic itinerary via Lake Millstatt, Lake Woerthersee - Klagenfurt - Semmering Pass. Connecting train from Toblach/Dobbiaco dp 14.06

Thanks for the detailed suggestions, you even included the bus schedule!

We're travelling 2 weeks total and going to have some luggage, I really don't want to lug it to Italy. I plan to leave it in Innsbruck, either at a hotel or at the train station. Also, the train Lienz-Vienna is almost 6 hours! I can't even find the Toblach-Lienz train, combined that would be more trains than I am willing to take in one day. Lastly, I like having a car to make my own decisions when and where to go.
So, the plan stands, we'll rent a car in Innsbruck and drive to Dolomites.

I'd like to avoid the most crowded locations and I am afraid Tre Cime is going to be crowded.
How about hiking around Selva in Puez Odle NP?
What about parking and overnight parking, is it a problem?

thanks

August is top high season all over Italy. I don't think that it makes a big difference whether you go to Toblach/Misurina or to Wolkenstein in Groeden/Sėlva Val Gherdejna.
