Discover the mighty Dolomites
Vacations in the UNESCO World Heritage site
In 2009, the big moment arrived: UNESCO decided to include the Dolomites in their list of World Heritage sites. With its unique shapes and location, the Dolomites are a truly unique nature spectacle and thoroughly deserve this status.
This great honor, however, is also a challenge for the locals - they must try to preserve this unique natural and cultural heritage for future generations.
What is it that makes vacations in the Dolomites so special?
- The resort includes a total of eight nature parks and one National Park.
- Approximately 13,000 kilometers of signposted hiking trails can be found in the Dolomites.
- In the local valleys, many still speak Ladin, an ancient Rhaeto-Romance language which once was widely used in the Alps.
- The rough, jagged rock formations in the Dolomites developed from coral reefs that used to be underwater in the Panthalassa Sea.
- Many myths and legendary tales speak of the "pale mountains", their clear lakes and the way the summits are reflected in the purple evening light.
