The most beautiful mountains in the world and their inhabitants

World heritage site and nature parks in South Tyrol

Up to the beginning of the ice age, the present region of the Dolomites was covered by the enormous primordial ocean Tethys. Within this ocean formed a gigantic coral reef. When the sea levels dropped worldwide, bizarre rocks majestically towered high in the air. Peaks that were different to all other mountains all around. The present UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Dolomites was born. Go on the search of the geological past of the “most beautiful mountains in the world” and discover the impressive biodiversity and precious natural resources in the Puez-Geisler and Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Parks.

Ladin culture and tradition in Val Badia

Bun dé, bëgnodüs (Hello, welcome!): Ladin - or Rhaeto-romanic, whatever you may call the language, originates from the Rhaetian and merged with the Latin of the Romans when these conquered the North several hundred years ago. This was the origin of Ladin which is still spoken by around 4 % of the population in South Tyrol today. In Val Badia in particular, apart from this unique language you will also find the Ladin culture, which is characterised by its mountain economy, good cuisine and sophisticated craftsmanship.


The many tourist attractions all around the Nature Hotel Störes in the Dolomites are as diverse as the adventure region Alta Badia: Marvel at the “sleeping bear” shrouded in legend and many further prehistoric finds in the Ladin Ursus ladinicus museum. You can gain an exciting insight into the history of the Dolomite-Ladiners in the Ćiastel de Tor museum. The Fort Tre Sassi museum and the ruins of the fortifications transport you into the times of the First World War. The bear cave, an impressive surprise for kids, teens and interested adults, can be found at the mountain station of the Piz Sorega cable car.

There are far too many nice things to say about our stay. From the cleaners to the bar staff, the waiters and waitresses, the receptionists, everyone made us feel truly welcome and at home.

Paul, tripadvisor

The location cannot get any better if you are looking for a hotel in San Cassiano. It is so convenient to the lift. In addition, the hotel has their deposit at a ski rental shop literally on the mountain.

It made an excellent base for us on a walking holiday, located in easy reach of several good starting/finishing points, with comfortable rooms, friendly service, good food and an interesting wine list.
