With an area of 52 square kilometers, the Seiser Alm is the largest mountain pasture in Europe. It extends to heights between 1500 and 2000 meters and offers a hiking and walking path network that covers an impressive 350 kilometers in total. And that network encompasses all difficulty levels. But no matter whether challenging or pleasurable: on all hikes you should keep an eye out not only for the panoramic views, but also for what you discover along the way. No fewer than 3426 species of animals and plants that live here.
Six things to be experienced in summer
on the Seiser Alm
The Seiser Alm is an outdoor paradise in summer. So you don’t lose track, we’ve put together six things that you should experience here.
Running Park Seiser Alm
20 well-marked trails with a total length of no less than 240 kilometers make the Running Park Seiser Alm one of the most popular. The lengths vary as well as the level of difficulty, only the scenery remains unchanged. Unchanged and breathtaking (like the altitude by the way …).
From March to November, the golf course in Seis is one of the most scenic in the world. Over an area of 60 hectares, an 18-hole course has been built at the foot of the Schlern. It’s not just scenic.
Discover the alpine meadow by bike
33 mountain bike trails stretch across the Seiser Alm, with something for everyone: for connoisseurs as well as for the aces. And you can even combine pleasure and sport on the hut tour. One tip though: As much as it’s important to focus on the trail, you still need to stop and enjoy the panoramic view now and again. It’s worth it! By the way: Bikes can be rented from us at the hotel.
Conquer the summits
It does not take long to explain to mountaineers what awaits them here on the Seiser Alm. Suffice to mention a few names: Langkofel, Plattkofel and Schlern, for example, offer tours of various degrees of difficulty in the footsteps of Luis Trenker. And once the summit has been reached, you will be rewarded with an incredible all-round view.
Find the witch springs
Right behind Hotel Tirler lies the Curasoa Forest, in whose shadow a fascinating place hides: the sulfur springs of the white witch Curadina. In her footsteps we have created the Witches’ Spring Trail, which is best done barefoot. At the individual stations you can learn a lot about the secrets of the forest and can enjoy it with all your senses.
