World Heritage Site: be mesmerised by the mountains
Bright layers of rock pile up into extraordinary shapes and reach heights of 3,200 m on softly undulating alpine pastures. These formations are also known as the Dolomites. In 2009 the UNESCO Committee classed large parts of the Dolomites as a World Heritage Site, stating that they are “highly distinctive mountain landscapes that are of exceptional natural beauty” and “sublime, monumental and colourful landscapes.” No wonder that for many people, one of the most beautiful things about South Tyrol is the Dolomites. And that’s saying something as South Tyrol’s unique Mediterranean flair, sophisticated cuisine and debonair yet down-to-earth lifestyle are also highly impressive.
Experience this extraordinary natural beauty together with your whole family from the Dolomit Family Resort: your hotel in the Dolomites. The Drei Zinnen/Tre Cime di Lavaredo, one of the most striking rock formations in the Dolomites, are close by. They are very popular among climbers and reach heights of up to 2,999 m.
You can admire the bright Dolomites from many angles on holiday on the Dolomitenblickrunde (Dolomite Vista Tour, 9 km long, moderately difficult), which goes through Niederrasen/Rasun di Sotto. Enjoy unique views of the entire mountain range from the nearby Kronplatz/Plan de Corones and cast your eyes far and wide over South Tyrol and the Dolomites. Even the vista from the Dolomit Family Resort will give you a tantalising glimpse of the Dolomites and the Central Alps.
