For generations – if not for centuries – the Dolomites have held a special fascination unlike that of any other mountains. In 2009, the Dolomites were declared a UNESCO World Nature Heritage Site. You can experience the wonder and the glory of the Dolomites in a variety of ways: You can take part in expeditions to the snowy summits, retrace the routes of legendary bicycle races along the Sellaronda, or delve into the history of the formation of the Dolomites at the spectacular MessnerMountainMuseum.
The Dolomites are a range of mountains belonging to the southern Limestone Alps in Italy. The Marmolata (3,342 meters above sea-level) is the highest summit of the Dolomites. Other well-known summits or massifs include the Three Pinnacles, the Sella, the Rose Garden, the Schlern / Sciliar , and the Geisler Group – directly visible from the La Majun.
