Situated between the Rosengarten massif and the Sella group, on the southern flanks of the Langkofel massif, a former shepherd's trail is now the site of a spectacular high altitude path. It was created in the early 20th century by the local Alpine Club – at the request of King Friedrich August of Saxony. He was a keen hiker and from 1904 to 1914 spent his summer months in Seis/Siusi.
With splendid panoramic vistas, the path leads along the foot of the Plattkofel mountain, past craggy rock faces, green pastures and rich flora, offering stunning views of the Marmolada glacier. Starting at the Sellajochhaus hotel, the hiking trail leads past several mountain inns. From the Salei inn, the Friedrich-August-Hütte inn and the Sandro-Pertini-Hütte mountain hut through to the Plattkofelhütte mountain hut on the Fassajoch pass, all offer refreshments and South Tyrolean specialities fit for a king.
