Spectacular mountain peaks and a UNESCO World Heritage Site: holidays in the Dolomites
The Dolomites with their striking mountain peaks, rugged cliffs and bizarre rock formations are since 2009 a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A holiday in this pristine mountain scenery promises sporting challenges, wonderful views and culinary highlights. Many climbing routes and hiking paths in the summer months call the active vacationers to come outside. Adventurous experiences await you on a tandem flight with a paraglider or on a hiking tour in the Nature Park Sciliar-Catinaccio. The Dolomites are made of dazzlingly coloured limestone and rose more than 250 million years ago from a primordial ocean. Still today, shell remains and fossilized coral can be found in the formation of the huge rock massif.
