Sciliar Massif

Its characteristic form with the Santner and Euringer peaks makes the Sciliar Massif the landmark of South Tyrol.

Boasting a maximum altitude of only 2,534 m asl, the legendary Sciliar between Siusi, Tires and Fiè allo Sciliar may not be the highest mountain of the region, but with the near-by Latemar and Catinaccio groups it is among the most popular massifs of South Tyrol and the Dolomites.

The Sciliar Massif is part of the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park and locates in the close surroundings of the Val Gardena. Numerous hiking trails, climbing routes and MTB tours lead across the area. Mt Sciliar offers also several possibilities in winter, furthermore the nearby Alpe di Siusi is connected with the Val Gardena skiing area.

Johann Santner was the first conquering the Sciliar Massif in 1880 and it was this man who gave the popular Santner Peak its name. By the way: did you know that in long passed days the Sciliar region was known as the home of the Sciliar Witches and of dwarfs? Still today, the Witches Beches, bizarre rock formations, are evidence of this popular belief.

Highest peak: Mt Pez (2,564 m asl)
Further summits: Castello Peak, Gabels Mull, Piccolo Sciliar, Santner Peak, Euringer Peak
