Hiking tour from Castelrotto to the Marinzen alpine pasture

The Marinzen mountain hut lies at the foot of the Alpe di Siusi and Mt Bullaccia at 1,490 m a.s.l

The Marinzen mountain hut lies on an alpine pasture above Castelrotto, at the foot of the 2,176 m high Mt Bullaccia. In summer the mountain hut attracts a lot of hikers, while in winter many people come here to ski on the famous Marinzen ski slope, which runs down to Castelrotto.

From the centre of Castelrotto, we follow trail no. 6 until we reach the Freinademetz wayside shrine, where we branch off to trail no. 4A, leading across beautiful lush meadows. Passed the Tusch Farm, a beautiful trail leads quite steeply up the mountain. Arrived at the meadows of the Marinzen alpine pasture, we enjoy the warming sun, while the children have a lot of fun on the huge playing ground near the mountain hut. Marinzen is the starting point of several beautiful hiking trails, leading e.g. via the Schafstall mountain hut to Mt Bullaccia, to Compaccio on the Alpe di Siusi or to the mysterious Witches' Chairs.

On our way back to Castelrotto we take trails no. 11A and 4, which offer beautiful views of the meadows around Siusi and the village of Castelrotto. Altogether, this is an easy hiking tour requesting a decent physical condition. An alternative: the Marinzen chairlift connects the Marinzen alpine pasture to the village centre of Castelrotto.
