Alpacas, horses, rabbits, and even camels populate the alpine meadows around the Tuff Mountain Hut near Fiè allo Sciliar.
The Tuff Mountain Hut - "Tuffalm" in German, "Malga Tuff" in Italian - is a 45-minute hike from the Fiè Pond (path no. 1), located amidst the beautiful alpine meadows of the Alpe di Siusi area. Here, at 1,280 m a.s.l., numerous animals romp about, which makes the alp a particularly popular excursion destination for families. Horses and alpacas graze on the pastures, and even the camels from the Pitschlmann Farm in Fiè often spend their summer holidays on the alpine pasture.
In addition to the petting zoo, the "Most Beautiful South Tyrolean Alpine Pasture 2007" also offers a children's playground, hot food and cool drinks. Those who do not want to make the hike can get to the alp by horse-drawn carriage: It is available daily at the car park of the Fiè Pond.
The surrounding area is also suitable for further hikes in the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park, e.g. to the Migg Cave, where the hermit Franz Migg lived in the 19th century, or to the Hofer Alpl at 1,364 m a.s.l., which offers a magnificent view on the surrounding mountains. In the summer months you can finish the day by cooling off in the bathing area at the Fiè Pond.
