In 2009 the Dolomites were awarded World Natural Heritage status. The region is a true Eldorado for hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, climbers and golfers. In the summer the region set against the beautiful backdrop of the Dolomites features a wide array of outdoor activities. In good weather visit Obereggen high-rope garden or the via ferratas through Rosengarten and Latemar. On a leisurely hike to the numerous mountain huts you will be thrilled by the local delicacies offered. The region is also known for its cultural highlights: the parish church of St. Nikolaus and St. Urlich, Thurn Castle in Deutschnofen or Maria Weißenstein, the most famous place of pilgrimage in South Tirol located south-east of Bolzano close to Petersberg. Kalterer See Lake is a lovely place for a refreshing dip in the water. Hotels and accommodations are available in the winter and in the summer.
