Enjoy your vacation in the Dolomites – UNESCO World Heritage
The roughly 250-million-year old alpine mountain range in Italy is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Every year, thousands of hikers, mountain climbers and winter sport fans enjoy their vacation in the Dolomites. This unique mountain range mainly consists of limestone and sedimentary rock. The Dolomites enchant with diverse sceneries, where rough mountain slopes merge with blooming meadows, clear rivers, lakes and deep woods. Puez Odle in Bolzano, Marmolada in Trentino und the Bletterbach Canyon in close proximity to our Hotel Waldheim are just some of the many spectacular places to visit for nature lovers and sport enthusiasts during a vacation in the Dolomites. The mild climate and the breath-taking nature offer countless highlights for any taste. Long hikes, bike tours, free climbing and ski excursions are just some of the options you may choose from.
History and culture in the Dolomites
The Dolomite region is not only a treat for nature lovers and active guests. Friends of art, culture and history will truly enjoy their vacation in the Dolomites! Here, German, Italian and Ladin cultures merge and from a unique cultural landscape. You can get to know this diversity by tasting the regional delicacies, admiring the traditional art works, visiting the local festivities and enjoying numerous cultural events. Those spending their vacation in the Dolomites who are interested in the history of this region could take a walk to the Col di Lana – one of the most gruesome war scenes during World War 1. Here, blown up mountain peaks, dilapidated fortifications and trenches are witnesses of probably the darkest episode of the Dolomites, reminding us still today of the horrors of war.
