Hiking with the family


Discover the largest Alpine pasture in Europe

The Seiser Alm (Alpe di Siusi) and the Schlern (Sciliar) area offer all of your hiking needs and desires – wonderful routes, spectacular views, rustic mountain huts. Take the route from the Schlern to the Santnerspitze (Punta Santner) and up to the Seiser Alm, to the summits of Plattkofel (Sasso Piatto) and Langkofel (Sasso Lungo) and back, or take one of many other routes. For example, around the Plattkofel or from Kastelruth (Castelrotto) to St. Oswald and Seis, or the "Confinbüden" up to the "Murmelhütte" hut. The local tourist associations have prepared a multitude of beautiful hiking tours for you.

Exploring the hiking paradise Seier Alm

If you want to discover the Schlern (Sciliar) area with your family on foot you should join our hiking guide Herbert.

You will see and experience more in her company than if you take your own way. On a guided tour you will learn a lot about the country and the people and will return to Bad Ratzes tired and exhausted in the evening, filled with wonderful experiences of an unforgettable holiday day.

Weekly programme Family hikes

Monday: getting to know eachother

We carve together a walking stick for the whole week and get to know each other at the campfire with bread on a stick.

To the Seiser Alm and the Sanon hut

Easy panoramic hike with a view over the vastness of the Alpe di Siusi to the Sanon Hut. A horse-drawn carriage takes us back to the cable car. Suitable for prams.

To the lake Völser Weiher and the Tuffalm

We continue on a comfortable path through shady forests, at curious looking cows and at the legendary Hexenstein until we reach the idyllic Völser Weiher after about 2 hours. If you feel like it, you can cool off in the pond or take a boat for a spin. If you like, you can continue with me to the beautifully situated Tuffalm (220 m altitude difference).

Thursday: to the Spitzbühl on the Seiser Alm

The Spitzbühl is a hilltop with breathtaking views of the Schlern and Santerspitze and the Ritten with the Rittnerhorn. There is also an excellent thermal for paragliders and remote-controlled model planes.

Friday: To Marinzen, a small meadow near Kastelruth

Marinzen is a small alp above Marinzen, children can play to their heart's content on the playground, watch fish and tadpoles at the pond and watch the kids and cows grazing. There are deck chairs and a bar for a cappuccino for the parents. If you feel like it, you can hike down trail no. 9 to Bad Ratzes.

Sunday: On the Seiser Alm to the Tirler and along the whiches path

The 2 km long tour is an adventure playground in the middle of the forest for all senses: hear, smell, taste, feel. A special attraction is the barefoot walking on the damp smelling forest floor, refreshing for the tired feet.
Back to the Tirler we have a picnic and rest before going back to Saltria and by bus to Kompatsch.
