The ‘pale mountains‘ offer monumental beauty and will excite you with the varied and contrasting mountain landscapes. For this reason, they have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2009.
The fossil elevations, which form the unique roof terrace, used to be a volcanic area and fascinates today with its unique landscape.
The history of the Dolomites is very important from a geologically point of view. Many different rock formations can be discovered and studied in this area. Countless fossils give information about the history of the Dolomites.
The name and popularity of the Dolomites is due to the French geologist Deodat de Dolomieu. In 1789, he discovered this innovative limestone. Therefore, the stone, as well as the mountain landscape was named after him.
Anyhow, the Dolomites are not only a paradise for geologists and other scientists, but also for hiker and adventurous people.
One of the highlights of the Dolomites is the so-called glow of the alps "Enrosadira". The rocks of the Dolomites change their colors with increasing intensity from a fiery red over orange to a shading violet.
