Hiking suggestions Alpe di Siusi and Dolomites

The high-altitude plateau and the Seiser Alm / Alpe di Siusi, part of the Italian Dolomites, offer a wide range of hiking trails and walking paths for young and old, alike. Suitable for sightseeing tours along the area's fortresses and castles (Trostburg, Prösels Castle, the Hauenstein Ruins, etc.). You can follow the trail of the famed ballad-singer Oswald von Wolkenstein.

      Across the verdant Alpine meadows and up to the entry point, to ascend the pale mountain. The only one on the edge of the Dolomites which extends so far into the province of South Tyrol. During the ascent, we can enjoy the magnificent view over the high-altitude plateau of the Seiser Alm / Alpe di Siusi. And then – the moment when you reach the summit, and can marvel at the sight of the Eisack/Isarco Valley below, the distant glaciers… Far from marked paths, we continue to the Gabler, where we can enjoy the unbroken stillness and the wonderful panorama of all of South Tyrol.
      We descend via the Prügel Trail – a unique experience. Between steep cliffs, we cross a bridge made of wooden planks leading over a roaring mountain stream and through a narrow gap. A well-earned rest at the Tuff Alm!

      Description
      Show details Hide details

      With the hotel shuttle bus, we travel into South Tyrol’s most-beautiful V-shaped valley: Villnöss/Funes, which is also the birthplace of the extreme mountain climber Reinhold Messner. In view of the mighty towers of the Geisler, we proceed to the Schlüter Hut and over wide fields to the "Old Man of the Mountains" – the Peitlerkofel. The summit is drenched in sunlight; an observation tower stands astride the German-language and Ladin parts of the country. The Peitler has two faces: one a jagged vertical cliff pointing to the north, and the other a more gently sloping side which anyone can climb.
      It affords excellent long-distance seeing, and you can also look down into the branching valleys of the Ladin region, dotted with little mountain villages where this archaic language can still be heard and ancient legends are still alive.
      Hiking equipment: Good, light boots with high-tread soles providing good traction, and rain protection.
