The Oswald von Wolkenstein trail is a loop trail that leads past the ruins of Salego and Castelvecchio, and features 15 stations where you can stop off and play. There’s a lot to discover along this tour, including a knight’s table, a knight's sword and mystical animals.

This hiking tour can be found in the family hiking booklet “Out and About with Nix the Witch” (hiking tour no. 1)

Turn-by-turn directions

From the entrance to the valley station of the Alpe di Siusi cable car, a paved road branches off towards Salego. Take a sharp left here and make your way up to the Oswald von Wolkenstein trail. It winds through the Castelvecchio forest, past the Salego and Castelvecchio ruins. Below the castle rock of Castelvecchio, the theme trail carries on towards Bad Ratzes and ends at a forest road.

On the right, a ten-minute detour will take you to the Hotel Bad Ratzes where you can have fun in a fabulous playground. To the left of the Hotel Bad Ratzes, follow the signpost to “Siusi,” and you will be back at the valley station of the cable car in half an hour.

No rest stop or eatery on the hiking trail
