Next to the main village of Castelrotto, Siusi is the second largest district of the municipality. The pretty village adjoins Fiè allo Sciliar and then extends to below the Alpe di Siusi. The modern Alpe di Siusi Cable Car starts at the end of the village and is in operation for most of the year. During these times, the road to the high alpine pasture remains closed during the day - during the closing times of the cable car, the protected area of the Alpe di Siusi can be reached by car.
Even personalities such as Max Valier and Sigurd Ibsen could not resist the special flair of Siusi, who came here to recover. Bad Ratzes near Siusi is one of South Tyrol's historic spas: The spruce needle bath was offered until 1962. Culturally interesting, on the other hand, is the Castelvecchio ruin, which was owned by Oswald von Wolkenstein. His name appears here frequently: The Oswald von Wolkenstein Path near Siusi tells of knights' tablets, a sword and mystical animals, and a tournament of the Oswald von Wolkenstein Ride is also held in Siusi allo Sciliar (Seis am Schlern).
In addition to the many activities on the Alpe di Siusi, you will also pass the San Vigilio Siusi Golf Course on the road from Siusi to San Vigilio, one of the most beautiful in the Alps. Then, when snow falls, Siusi becomes the gateway to a winter sports paradise. The Alpe di Siusi Skiing Area not only includes 67 km of slopes, but also several cross-country ski tracks and toboggan runs, and is connected to the Val Gardena Ski Resort. The Zallinger Mountain Hut on the high alp, where one of the sledge runs starts, is a wonderful destination for a winter hike thanks to its idyllic location.
