At the foot of the Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi, nestled in the unique landscape of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site, these five Dolomites resorts in South Tyrol offer ideal conditions for a summer holiday in the mountains.
The seemingly endless expanse of the Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi and surrounding villages of Kastelruth/Castelrotto, Seis am Schlern/Siusi allo Sciliar, Völs am Schlern/Fiè allo Sciliar and Tiers am Rosengarten/Tires al Catinaccio make you want to explore nature like there’s no tomorrow! The holiday resorts are all quite near one another and well-connected and easy to get to on the local bus network.
Kastelruth/Castelrotto (1,050 metres above sea level) is the largest holiday resort in the Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi Dolomites region and is one of the places that have been awarded the title of Borghi più belli d'Italia, Italy’s most beautiful hamlets and villages. The painted façades in the historic town centre are remarkable, as are the numerous local businesses that invite you to stroll and shop. The museum of traditional costumes is also here, as is a museum dedicated to the local folk band, the Kastelruther Spatzen. The 82 metre church tower watches over the town.
Seis am Schlern/Siusi allo Sciliar
Seis am Schlern/Siusi allo Sciliar lies at the foot of the 2,500-metre-high Schlern – the legendary mountain to which the oldest nature reserve in South Tyrol owes its name: the Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Reserve. A holiday in Seis am Schlern/Siusi allo Sciliar is the perfect place to experience nature, surrounded by magic and history. And there’s more: Seis am Schlern/Siusi allo Sciliar is where you’ll find the valley station of the Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi cableway which will get you quickly to the biggest alpine pasture in Europe.
Völs am Schlern/Fié allo Sciliar
Völs am Schlern/Fiè allo Sciliar is charming year-round – especially in the summer. Not far from Bolzano/Bozen, Völs am Schlern/Fiè allo Sciliar has grown slowly from a summer retreat to a spa town with an amazing panorama. For over a century, Völs am Schlern/Fiè allo Sciliar and its traditional hay baths have been the go-to destination for authentic natural wellness holidays. You can also find plenty of relaxation at the idyllic local lake, where a dip in the cool water is a must in summer.
Tiers am Rosengarten/Tires al Catinaccio
Meet King Laurin and his fascinating mountain kingdom. Tiers am Rosengarten/Tires al Catinaccio is the ideal destination for hikers and climbers. The numerous hiking trails and alpine tours lead high up to the Rosengarten in the Dolomites and into the rustic Tschamintal valley. Whether a leisurely pleasure tour or a challenging alpine tour, there is something for everyone. Don’t miss the unique enrosadira at the Rosengarten, watching the light change hue as the sun sets. It is doubly beautiful when seen from the Wuhn Lake, where the fiery natural show is also reflected in the water.
