Via Sciliar 16 39040 Siusi allo Sciliar/Seis am Schlern
Not far from Siusi, there is a hushed spot with a view beyond compare: The Karlotten Kofel hill. At the highest point of the volcanic rock and at the foot of the shimmering red porphyry of the mountain face, the incredible view opens out onto the mighty massif of the Sciliar - and no less than seven chruch towers! Through the heat of the lava and the exceptionally sunny location, the vegetation here is surprisingly Mediterranean.
The Karlotten Kofel - Gazing outward and inward. The Sciliar and seven church towers. Stop and listen to the silence.
To the Karlotten Kofel - From Siusi centre, take the road to S. Osvaldo until you come to the Peterlunger farm, the turn down to your left and follow trail no. 7A until you come to the Felderer fork, walk up the cobbled path, cross the road at the Furscherhof and continue onwards to the Karlotten Kofel. The return route leads along the same trail or, alternatively, when you come to the Felderer farm, follow the trail that leads in sweeping curves past the Furscher Weiher lake and take the Burgfriedenstraße back to Siusi.
