The unique scenery of the Dolomite peaks characterise Europe's largest Alpine plateau, the Alpe di Siusi. The Sciliar mountain and the Sasso Lungo group seem within reach. Immerge yourself in this breathtaking landscape!
The Sciliar and its rich varied landscape
The hilly plateau on the Alpe di Siusi is the biggest one on this altitude in the Alps and Europe and is part of Nature Park Sciliar-Catinaccio. The landscape is predominantly grassland with some trees like larch, arolla pine and fir.
The Nature Park Sciliar-Catinaccio is 6,796 ha big and situated in the western part of the Dolomites. The park includes three communities (Castelrotto, Fiè and Tires) together with the landscape conservation area Alpe di Siusi. The Sciliar mountain with the two famous peaks Santner and Euringer is one of South Tyrol's emblems.
Redescovering the past
Castle and fortresses, small museums, chapels and churches are the symbol of culture in the holiday region Alpe di Siusi. The School Museum of Tagusa is also part of it. It tells you the history of pupils going from the 18th Century up to 1993. How the lords of Presule Castle once lived, this and far more you will discover by taking part to a guided tour, in the homonymous castle. And the Farmers' museum shows you the hard and difficult life of farmers in ancient times.
With its quaint, historical village square, Castelrotto is the largest center in the vicinity of the Alpe di Siusi. It's lively and tradition-conscious village with lots of charm and culinary variety.
The Alpine village of Siusi allo Sciliar lies at the foot of the Sciliar Massive, at an elevation of 1,000 meters above sea-level. Amidst numerous meadows and woods, this tourist town is rich in tradition and the starting-point of the newly-constructed panorama aerial lift to the Alpe di Siusi.
With a panoramic, sunny location at the foot of the Sciliar Massive, the town of Fiè allo Sciliar offers a variety of attractions. This vacation village with its idyllic hamlets is known especially for its long tradition of hay baths and its culinary successes. The culture center at the Presule Castle has likewise garnered considerable attention.
The Alpe di Siusi is regarded as one of the most fabulous landscapes in the Dolomites. In the wintertime, the slopes of the Seiser Alm are a paradise for skiers, snowboarders, toboggan enthusiasts, snowshoe hikers... all against a breathtaking backdrop.
