Keeping active in Castelrotto – Holiday at Haus Sabina

The Sciliar area offers a wide range of activities in winter to get the pulse racing but also boasts plenty of great options in the summer too.

Summer in South Tyrol - hiking in the Sciliar area

The sunny high plateau of the Sciliar area is framed by bold mountain peaks, dense forests, valleys, open meadows and Alpine pastures. Our guest house is the perfect starting point for numerous hikes and mountain bike tours around the village of Castelrotto, the Bullaccia or the Alpe di Siusi. The lift "Marinzen" starts at Castelrotto and takes you to a beautiful Alpine pasture, ideal for hikes with the whole family.
Biking, climbing and paragliding are just a few of the activities that will get your pulse racing, and for those who like to party, there are also a number of folk festivals in Castelrotto. In June, the annual "Oswald-von-Wolkenstein-Ritt" takes place (a parkour ride with horses) and in the middle of October, there is the famous "Kastelruther Spatzenfest".
And of course, if you prefer to keep things simple, you can just enjoy the warm weather and the Sciliar area’s beautiful natural scenery.
