The Dolomites have become South Tyrol's landmark. They are the dream of every climber and mountaineer, every skier and snowboarder, a natural wonder, which is one of a kind in its uniqueness and diversity. The UNESCO World Nature Heritage comprises over 350 mountains with summits over 3.000 metres, seven nature parks and one national park. Drei Zinnen, Sella, Rosengarten, Latemar, Marmolada – with 3.343 meters the highest peak in this mountain range – and the famous first climbers: Grohmann, Winkler … The history of alpinism as well as tourism can be tracked in the Dolomites. Visit the probably most famous host and pioneer Miss Emma in Niederdorf. For those who want to dive deeper into history, an excursion to the Bletterbachschlucht is highly recommended. In this “South Tyrolean Grand Canyon” you can excavate fossils and remains of the primeval sea dwellers.
Today the Dolomites can be divided into the holiday regions Hochpustertal, Kronplatz, Alta Badia, Gröden, Eggental and Seiser Alm. The various first-class hotels are the ideal starting point for the most beautiful walks high up the stony giants. Every area has its special attractions, specialities and traditions, and every region its ski areas. Here in the Dolomites vacation equals relaxation and adventures, in summer and in winter alike.
