A natural architecture
Discover the Dolomites
In the holiday region Bolzano and sorroundings, the valleys are no longer narrow and the mountains don’t seem to be just as high. Instead of the ragged cliffs of the Dolomites Mountains, you come across wide high plateaus and great panoramic views. From the Salten, the most extensive larch meadow in Europe, or the Ritten, the cradle of relaxation, you can enjoy breath-taking views and enjoy the closeness of nature.
The characteristic rock of the Dolomites consists of fossilized coral reefs formed during the Triassic Period (around 250 million years ago) by organisms and sedimentary matter at the bottom of the ancient tropical Tethys Ocean.

The Dolomites consist of fossilized coral reefs formed during the Triassic Period (around 250 million years ago) by organisms and sedimentary matter at the bottom of the ancient tropical Tethys Ocean. The Alps arose as a result of the collision of the African and European tectonic plates, forcing the rocks at the point of impact to soar skyward. The western part of the Tethys Ocean which formerly divided these two continents disappeared.
The Dolomites Mountains stand proud and distinct from the other limestone Alps and offer a lot of wonderful villages and parks.
