UNESCO World Natural Heritage Dolomites experience imposing mountains and peaks
The Dolomites are not only for mountaineers like Reinhold Mesner the most beautiful mountains in the world. UNESCO has also recognized the unique beauty of this mountainous landscape. The varied landscape, but also the geological and geomorphological characteristics of the Dolomites, have led the UNESCO Committee to include subdivisions of the pale mountains in the list of World Natural Heritage.
Kastelruth and the Seiser Alm are located in the middle of the nature reserve, so that you can also explore the Dolomites in a hiking holiday. The Schlern, which you can already see from the balcony of your accommodation in Kastelruth, is part of Dolomites, since it is included in the Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park. In addition, it is the landmark of South Tyrol and houses the mythical Schlern witches. Go on a hike to the legendary Schlern and witness the unique nature games in unspoiled nature!
