“Witches’ Springs” adventure trail

A 2 km long adventure trail starts at the Tirler Hut and leads among other things to the witch Curandina and the wise owl Emma

The Witches' Springs Barefoot and Adventure Trail is designed for young and old: Right at the Tirler Hut, accessible from the mountain station on the Alpe di Siusi in a hike or by bus, it's time to take off your shoes and experience the surroundings with all your senses: smell, feel, hear, see, taste. To make sure things don't get boring, a forest playground opens up the "Witches' Springs" adventure. Tree houses and tunnels, a skittles game and other stations offer space for romping.

Afterwards, the "Witches' Springs" adventure trail - "Erlebnisweg Hexenquellen" in German, "Sorgenti delle Streghe" in Italian - continues into the forest and to the the springs of the Sciliar Witches: Although the path is not signposted, it is accompanied by the witch Curandina and the wise owl Emma. Designed as a circular trail of about 1.5 hours, it also passes sulphur springs, forest clearings, marshlands and a suspension bridge. Carved figures line the path, and again and again a witch's house, a special place or an interactive station appears. As the entire protected landscape area of the Siusi Alp is located at an altitude of 1,700 - 1,800 m a.s.l., the summer months are particularly suitable for this excursion. Snow can still be here until May.
