Ski vacations Kastelruth - skiing on Europe's largest alp!
Alpe di SiusiIn the heart of South Tyrol, directly at the connection to Val Gardena, is the wide high plateau of Alpe di Siusi, with its diverse resorts. This alp is the queen of Europe's highest alp: it covers 52 km², stretching from 1,060 m - 2,245 m between the imposing peaks of Langkofel and Plattkofel, Goldknopf, Puflatsch and Schlern! As such, Alpe di Siusi is among the most famous winter sports and hiking areas in the entire alpine region. Despite its numerous visitors, the resorts have retained their traditional charm with pretty farm houses and towering church towers. The ski area is most easily reached with the Umlauf lift from the edge of Seis. Alpe di Siusi offers 60 kilometres of piste and, together with Val Gardena, a ski paradise with 175 kilometres of piste!
Kastelruth (1,060 m), known due to the Kastelruther Spatzen, is a lively and traditional mountain village with a pretty, historical centre that attracts tourists all year-round. The wide-spread district covers resorts such as Pfuels, Runggaditsch, Seis am Schlern, Seiser Alm, St. Michael, St. Oswald, St. Valentin, St. Vigil, Tagusens, Tisens and Sureghes, whereby the Seiser Alm stretches over nearly the entire district. Kastelruth attracts its guests with a rich selection of gastronomy, respectable night-life and a lovely, picturesque resort centre. Even with all the frequent tourism, the resort has still maintained its original village charm. The area around Kastelruth can be explored on a wide-spread net of cross-country ski trails and winter hiking tracks or also on a snowshoe hike. A dominant eye-catcher is the rock formation at the Santnerspitze (2,414 m) and the famous Schlern (2,565 m).
