The ruins of Salegg are not far from the Hauenstein ruins, at the foot of the might rock face of the Santner, hidden deep in the forest. The castle dates back to the 12th century and were passed in the hands of the Wolkenstein dynasty. Today all hat remains of its former glory are the castle walls, and yet the site continues to emanate a very special, mysterious energy. According to an old legend, a secret passageway runs between the two castles Hauenstein and Salegg.
The Ruin of Salegg is located above Siusi, at the foot of the Sciliar. You start at the bottom station of the Aerial cableway Siusi - Seiser Alm and follow the "Oswald von Wolkenstein" path. After half an hour walking you reach the ruins of Salegg.
