The Dolomites might just be the world’s most beautiful construction, on this both architect Le Corbusier and alpinist Reinhold Messner can agree. See and experience true South Tyrolean beauty whilst pondering the towers of Three Peaks (Drei Zinnen) or basking in the last rays of evening light that redden the face of the Rosengarten massif. Hike along the Dolomites High Mountain Trail (Dolomiten Höhenweg), climb or head mountain biking in a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Dolomites are part of theAlps. They stretch across Northern Italy through the provinces of South Tyrol/Südtirol, Trento and Belluno, reaching their 3,343 m peak atop the Marmolada. The South Tyrolean Dolomite region is particularly rich in possibilities for adventure including the eye-catching rock pinnacles, towers and table mountains: In Alta Pusteria/Hochpustertal, the highlight of any holiday in South Tyrol is a walk around the triple towers of Three Peaks (Drei Zinnen) in the nature park named in their honour. The Plan de Corones/Kronplatz holiday region captivates visitors with the most modern lifts at South Tyrol’s No. 1 ski mountain and a fantastic 360° panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. In Alta Badia andVal Gardena/Gröden, valleys influenced by the Ladin culture, rounding the Sella massif on skis or on a bike is as pleasurable as a culinary indulgence at any of the unique mountain huts. Or perhaps a high-Alpine tour in Puez-Odlenature park is more your style? An impressive view of the Schlern mountain awaits visitors at the Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm, the largest high-Alpine pasture in Europe. The legendary natural beauty of the Karersee lake and theLatemar and Rosengarten mountains in Val d'Ega/Eggental are part of what makes holidays in the Dolomites of South Tyrol so unforgettable.
