Skiing in Val Gardena

The ski area in Val Gardena/Gröden is one of the most beautiful and attractive in the world. This is not some publicity slogan invented by the locals, but a fact that numerous international awards and prizes given by international critics, by magazines and internet parlours prove. The ski area of Val Gardena/Gröden with the Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm, Seceda and Dantercepies, is embedded in the fascinating landscape of the Dolomites with direct views on parts of the World Nature Heritage of the Dolomites. The Sassolungo/Langkofel and the Gruppo Sella/Sellagruppe, the Odle/Geislerspitzen, but also the Marmolada dominate the scenery in an impressive way. Skiing in Val Gardena/Gröden also stands for fantastically prepared slopes, 450 lifts and a total of 1,200 kilometres of slopes in the Dolomiti Superski circuit. Traditional huts and an impressive culinary offer which ranges from fish specialities in 2,000 metres height to culinary highlights and the ever-present “Wuerstel” (sausage) with French fries.

Hiking in Val Gardena

South Tyrol owns almost 20,000 kilometres of official hiking paths. More than thousand kilometres of these well-marked paths lead into the direct surrounding of the Val Gardena/Gröden. They take you to alpine huts, to peaks and amazing vantage points. Val Gardena/Gröden is simply a hiking paradise. Old and young, kids and grown-ups will find numerous possibilities to spend a wonderful hiking holiday in the Dolomites. 2009 a part of the Dolomites was declared World Heritage-Nature Site by the UNESCO. A wonderful distinction for one of the most beautiful and charming areas world-wide. The area between the Puez-Geisler group and the Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm, between the Sassolungo/Langkofel and the Sciliar/Schlern, between the Sella and Stevia offer plenty to observe and to admire.

Dolomites

The “fan club” of the Dolomites is huge. Le Corbussier, the French architect, once called the Dolomites the “most beautiful natural architecture of the earth”. The political head of South Tyrol, Luis Durnwalder, described them as “unique visiting card”. The artist Albrecht Dürer rendered parts of the Dolomites eternal on his aquarelles. The privy councillor Johann Wolfgang von Goethe wrote about the “unusual colour of these mountains with their beautiful, unique and steep shapes” during his journey across Italy. The Viennese mountaineer Emil Zsigmondy called the Dolomites a “precious jewel of the Alps”. Reinhold Messner, native South Tyrolean and the first mountaineer with all 14 8000 -metre peaks in the rucksack observed: “The Dolomites are not the highest mountains in the world, but definitely the most beautiful ones”. And the South Tyrolean Hans Kammerlander, who also spent years in the icy heights of the Himalaya keeps repeating how happy he feels every time he comes home again to the “warm and wonderfully steep faces of the Dolomites “after one of his expeditions.

World Heritage of the UNESCO

The list of the World Heritage Sites of the UNESCO comprises 890 sights in 148 countries. 689 of them are cultural sites and 176 nature sites. On June 2009 14 new sites were added to the list, and among them were parts of the Dolomites. Uniqueness, beauty and historic genuineness are the main criteria that need to be fulfilled in order to be accepted on the list. Being a world nature heritage entails serious obligations as a detailed and convincing plan for the maintenance of the site must be handed in together with the description of its present condition. Should the demands not be met or should measures against it be taken, the award can immediately be withdrawn again. The Dolomites are quite a problematic area. Despite its great beauty, the activeness of this unique area is limited and can’t take more than its share. Concepts are being developed of how to best guide the enormous streams of visitors.
