Alpe di Siusi

Theme paths such as the “Witches’ Springs” trail stretch across the Alpe di Siusi, the highest point in the municipality of Castelrotto

Alpe di Siusi is not only the name of the famous high plateau, but also a separate district of Castelrotto. Part of it are the scattered settlements of Saltria, Compaccio (Compatsch), Giogo and Piz. Where the cable car ends, the accommodation facilities of Compaccio extend. This also includes a modern church and a few other buildings. At the opposite end of the plateau, on the other hand, lies Saltria on the upper course of the Rio Jender stream, which flows down into the Val Gardena valley. The hamlets of Piz and Giogo are characterised by idyllic alpine huts.

The Alpe di Siusi (Seiser Alm) is now a protected landscape area in the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park, the oldest nature park in South Tyrol. During the day, it can only be reached by the Alpe di Siusi Cable Car from Siusi allo Sciliar or by public transport - the road to the high alpine reserve remains closed to private traffic during this time. In the weeks between the seasons, when the cable car is closed, access to the paid parking areas is permitted.

Mountain meadows with alpine roses, hiking paths with adventure stations and wide areas with alpine huts characterise the high alpine pasture in summer, guarded by the majestic Sciliar. Saltria is the ideal starting point for tours around Mt. Sassolungo and Mt. Sasso Piatto, to the Molignon Hut and on Mt. Sciliar. In winter, the high alp turns into a skiing area with 67 km of slopes. In addition, you can go cross-country skiing, sledging and enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride.
