You don’t get much closer to the Schlern than this: This leisurely loop-route leading from Compatsch to the Spitzbühl at the far end of the Seiser Alm boasts breathtaking views of the Dolomite peaks and Seis am Schlern at the bottom of the valley.

Turn-by-turn directions

Begin this short loop-tour of the Seiser Alm by following the main road downhill towards Seis am Schlern. When you come to the bend at the valley station of the Spitzbühl lift, turn left into the car park, take the trail to the right of the lift and go on until just before the mountain station. This beautiful route passes the Laurin, Panorama and Bamby lift stations, and winds eastwards across the Seiser Alm. There are a number of places offering refreshments en-route where you can stop and recharge your batteries. After around 7 km, the route loops around and leads you back to your set-off point. The final part follows the main road to Compatsch and boasts, once again, fabulous views of the Seiser Alm mountain plateau.
