This is the largest plateau in Europe and it extends from Sassopiatto and Sassolungo to the Sciliar Massif.

Discover the Alpe di Siusi campsites.
The Alpe di Siusi region is overflowing with natural beauty to admire and there is a small open air museum around every bend. If you decide to spend your holiday in a camping ground in Alpe di Siusi, the best thing to do is go out and spend time outdoors. The Alpe di Siusi and Sciliar region is full of castles. Visit the collections displayed inside or immerse yourself in the special atmosphere surrounding these ancient residences. We recommend you visit:
- Castel Presule at Fiè allo Sciliar (only open in the summer): Fortified in 1517, the castle now hosts numerous cultural events and a museum with collections of weapons, paintings and drawings.
- The ruins of Castelvecchio: In ancient times, Oswald von Wolkenstein, a minstrel known in South Tyrol, lived here. Today the ruins are accessible to the public and are a half hour away from Siusi by foot along trail number 8.
- The ruins of Castel Salego: If you visit the ruins of Castelvecchio, take advantage of the opportunity to also visit the Salego ruins, a half hour away by foot. Unfortunately, the remaining ruins are not in good condition, but the walk to get there is really beautiful and well worth the time.
In the summer, the Alpe di Siusi region is perfect for those who like to walk, take hikes or go on mountain bike rides. Most of the region is also closed to traffic and only accessibly to farm equipment and the shuttle bus, leaving nature and the landscapes unaltered and unspoiled. For your hikes we suggest:
- Fiè Lake where swimming is permitted: It can be reached starting from the centre of the town of Fiè via trail number 1. Continue towards Fiè di Sopra (Obervöls) to arrive at the lakes in about an hour. The walk is also suitable for children.
- Malga Tuff: Once you arrive at Fiè Lake, if you still feel like walking, keep following trail number 1 until you reach Malga Tuff (1272 m). Voted the prettiest Alpine house in South Tyrol, it has a small zoo and a playground for children.
- Hofer Alpl: From Malga Tuff, continue along trail number 1 to reach Hofer Alpl where you can admire the panorama overlooking the Renon, Ortles and the Gruppo di Tessa National Park. The view will take your breath away.
- Mahlknechtschwaige / Rifugio Molignon, the largest malga (Alpine house) in the Alps. Take a cable car from Siusi to Compaccio/Kompatsch. From here, take road number 7 leading to Rifugio Molignon.
