In Summer their natural beauty is truly unique while in the colder months they’re transformed into an enchanting Winter wonderland: the Dolomites – land of the Ladins – fill the dreams of every climber and winter sports enthusiast.
The Ladins are the smallest, as well as oldest, linguistic group in South Tyrol. Ever since 1974 there have been no less than four nature parks: Sciliar / Schlern, Puez-Odle / Puez–Geisler, Fanes Sennes Braies / Fanes–Sennes–Prags and the Sesto Dolomites / Sextner Dolomiten, monuments to the extraordinary beauty of this area. Val Gardena / Grödental and Val Badia / Gadertal are now exclusive resorts and firm favourites with skiers and excursionists, while the areas of Catinaccio/Rosengarten–Latemar and Sciliar / Schlerngebiet are hugely popular as family holiday resorts.

Come and experience the magic of the Dolomites: the rapture of a mountain sunset, the winter delight of the snow-covered woods and meadows, the crystal clear air. Brunico / Bruneck, a town with a charm all of its own, is the main town of Val Pusteria / Pustertal (www.bruneck.com). In nearby Teodone / Dietenheim the Provincial Outdoor Ethnographic Museum gives visitors the chance to get a glimpse of the hard peasant life of past times.
Alpe di Siusi / Seiser Alm – with its rocky meadows, a vast carpet of brightly coloured flowers in Summer and a sparkling blanket of snow in Winter - is renowned as the vastest mountain pasture in Europe.
Sesto, in South Tyrol's most eastern valley, is characterised by the farms on the south slopes, the expanded larch-meadows, the shadowy pine forests and the Alpine roses on the slopes of the Nemes Alp. Immerse into a promising and fascinating world, surrounded by the Dolomites of Sesto (www.sexten.it)!
Come and get a glimpse of paradise. Skiing and magnificent winter landscapes, climbing expeditions and fantastic excursions below the singular faces of the Dolomites, challenging mountain-bike and hiking trails, natural parks and deep blue Alpine lakes…….
