Turn-by-turn directions

To take the Puflatsch loop route, head towards Tiosels from Kastelruth and follow the route until you cross the main road, then continue along the small path. From here, the route is packed with variety, ranging from small, peaceful tarred roads through to the uphill stretch leading past S. Michele and on to the Panider Sattel. Apart from a few leisurely downhill stretches where you can get your breath back, it’s uphill all the way, passing Pufels-en-route. On this part of the tour there are big stones on the way, but you can still ride your bike without problems. After more than 1000 metres of elevation, you will come to the main Seiser Alm road, which leads past Compaccio in weaving bends towards Seis am Schlern. At the foot of the Puflatsch, the final stretch leads back to Kastelruth. This route is ideal for e-bike riders.
