As mountain landscapes with unique beauty, the Dolomites are part of the UNESCO World Heritage site. The limestone mountains of North Italy are made up of coral reefs and petrified algae that continue to amaze us with their unique shapes.
The highest mountain of the mountain chain, which belongs to the southern limestone Alps, is the Marmolada with an altitude of 3,342 metres. The Dolomites have massive, imposing peaks like the Three Peaks, the Sella, the Sciliar and the group of the Catinaccio, to mention only a few.
The alternation of delicate alpine pastures with lush meadows and steep limestone walls makes this region so unique and beloved both by summer and autumn visitors, and in winter by skiers and lovers of winter sports.
Incidentally, the Dolomites take their name from a mineral. In the summer of 1788, the French geologist, Deodat de Dolomieu, discovered an unknown mineral in the region, a bicarbonate, which was named in his honour. The name thereafter became the name of all the imposing mountain chains: the Dolomites, as we know them today.
The view of the three mountains, the Three Peaks of Lavaredo, which rise majestically, one next tothe other, on the horizon in the high Pusteria Valley, is unmistakable. During your holiday on Kronplatz, a walk of around 3 hours will take you round their perimeter to admire the most famous rock formation of the Dolomites, a unique experience in contact with the harmonious majesty of this trio of mountains.
Explore the Dolomites during hikes, climbs and trips on mountain bikes in the summer - with a splendid view in the golden autumn or in the cold season with skis and snowshoes.
