This is a very easy hike through the largest, high alpine meadow in all of Europe. The Alpe di Siusi (Italian) or Seiser Alm (German), has many trails to walk on. Situated in northern Italy’s South Tyrol area, it has views that are incredible. And everything in this area is still signed in both Italian and German. It is a very popular skiing destination in the winter also. A nice easy day spent with endless views.

This is a very easy hike through the largest, high alpine meadow in all of Europe. The Alpe di Siusi (Italian) or Seiser Alm (German), has many trails to walk on. Situated in northern Italy’s South Tyrol area, it has views that are incredible. And everything in this area is still signed in both Italian and German. It is a very popular skiing destination in the winter also. We made our way from the town we stayed in to Castelrotto, and then just beyond to Siusi, where we took the gondola up to Compatsch. Once off the gondola, you can walk pretty much anywhere. We were going to originally try for the top of Sciliar, but that didn’t pan out this time. So we did this simple loop to get a feel for the meadow. So many options to choose from, I would love to come back here some day and do more of the trails. If ever in this part of Northern Italy, I highly recommend this as a nice easy day spent with endless views.
