Siusi Alp

The largest high alp of Europe is located in the South Tyrolean Dolomites, about 20 km far from Bolzano.

56 sq km hiking area and gorgeous natural landscape - the Siusi Alp - "Seiser Alm" in German, "Alpe di Siusi" in Italian - above Castelrotto (Kastelruth) and Siusi allo Sciliar (Seis) is known as the largest high alp throughout Europe. Therefore it is particularly popular both in summer and winter, when the region turns into a skiing area with fantastic slopes. And of course always accompanied by the unique mountain backdrop of the Sciliar mountain, the landmark of South Tyrol.

The Siusi Alp stretches from 1,680 m up to 2,350 m a.s.l. and is bounded by several mountain groups. Mt. Sciliar, the 2,655 m high Cima di Terrarossa and the Denti di Terrarossa are in the south-west, the Sassolungo Group in the south-east. In the north, Bullacia, a panoramic viewpoint, and Mt. Piz, are located. In the west the Sciliar area is situated, with the villages of Tires, Castelrotto and Fiè allo Sciliar - here the Alpe di Siusi descends towards the Valle Isarco valley.

The two hamlets on the Siusi Alp are the touristically developed Compaccia (1,860 m a.s.l.) and Saltria (1,680 m a.s.l.). Both in summer and winter, the modern Alpe di Siusi Cable Car takes you up to the high plateau, the road is closed to traffic during the day (in the period, when the cable car is not operating, the road is open). Gorgeous hiking paths can be found all over the Siusi Alp, a visit to the area is highly recommended in early summer, when the alpine roses are blooming. The more southern parts are located in the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park. In winter, the high alp with its skiing area is attached to the Dolomiti Superski ski carousel.
