Turn-by-turn directions

The initial stretch of this tour begins in Kastelruth, and leads all the way south towards Seis am SChlern, slightly above the main road. At the foot of the Puflatsch you will pass two bends on the Seis am Schlern-Compatsch road and, finally, a fork left onto the forest road. At a steady gradient, the route follows the path to Marinzen to the small water reservoir, where you will see the Marinzen Alm in the background. The welcoming mountain hut and child-friendly surroundings provide a pleasant spot for a small break. The return route leads along a forest trail past Tiosels and back to Kastelruth.
