Siusi allo Sciliar

Directly underneath the high plateau of the Alpe di Siusi, there is the picturesque village of Siusi allo Sciliar.

Second only to the chief village of Castelrotto, Siusi allo Sciliar is the largest village of the municipality. Boasting about 1,700 inhabitants, the picturesque mountain village extends at 998 m asl, directly underneath the largest Alpine pasture of South Tyrol, in other words, in the heart of the Dolomites. The particular atmosphere of Siusi has already been appreciated by personalities such as Max Valier or Sigurd Ibsen, who spent several days in this area.

The Sciliar high plateau provides an exceptional view: the Fassa Dolomites, Alpe di Siusi and the Sciliar are ideal terrain for those who love mountaineering, hiking, climbing and also picnics under the open sky in the Sciliar Catinaccio nature park. The lower terminus of the Alpe di Siusi funicular is located only a stone’s throw from the centre.

Also in winter, when the Alpe di Siusi skiing area makes you get moving on its slopes, Siusi allo Sciliar is a popular holiday destination. Also snow-shoeing, ski touring and tobogganing are activities that are frequently practiced in the cooler months of the year.

Our tip: a visit of the ruins of Hauenstein castle, which has once been in the hands of the famous minnesinger Oswald von Wolkenstein.
