This loop-trail around the Bullaccia leads you to legendary sites and fabulous vantage points.
Take the Alpe di Siusi cable car up to the mountain station in Compaccio. To your left, a wide path leads steeply uphill towards Bullaccia. If you prefer, you can save yourself this gain and take the Telemix Bullaccia up.
From here, walk on to the Engelsrast (“Angels’ Rest”) viewing platform and enjoy the view of the surrounding peaks together with the angel who is resting there. The loop route leads on to the Filln Cross and the Witches’ Benches: According to legend, witches used to dance here - and even today you can see the stone benches with their backrests! The path now leads down to the Goller Cross and, with a view of the mount Sciliar in sight, back to Compaccio, the set-off point of the tour.
