The Dolomites in South Tyrol
Far more than just exceptionally beautiful
In 2009, the Committee of UNESCO announced what I think every time I look at the Dolomites or go hiking in them. Namely, that they are "a unique mountain landscape of exceptional beauty" and that the Dolomites constitute a "sublime, monumental and richly-coloured landscape".
The suns rays on bizarre giants
Their bright colours make them a very special type of mountain, changing their colour from almost white to an intensive red in the light of the evening. I could really watch this game of light and shadows for hours.
I'm also fascinated by the bizarre shapes which seem like something from another world. It's hard to imagine that many millions of years ago they were part of a coral reef surrounded by ocean. As the sea levels began to sink in the ocean basins, the Dolomites began to make their appearance. These rugged mountains, rising above gently undulating pastures make for a wonderful natural spectacle that will make your day.
Panoramic views form the peak of the Kronplatz
You can have wonderful views of the Dolomites from the peak of the Kronplatz. Take the first cable car (only 500 metres away from our Hotel Petrus) and watch from a height of 2,275 metres as the day wakes. These impressions will stay with you forever.
Paradise for hikers, mountain bikers and skiers
Once a week I will take you to the most beautiful places in the enchanting Dolomites!
Accept nature's invitation to actively experience the natural beauty with all your senses while hiking or walking, with the mountain bike or the race bike or, in winter, in the phenomenal Dolomiti Superski resort – perhaps together with your ski guide: my husband Hans.
Dolomite tour in a convertible
Reserve the Petrus-Sunshine-Cabrio for an unforgettable tour through the Dolomites - on request with a delicious picnic basket for the trip.
The nicest route is the classic Dolomite tour to the Three Peaks: from Bruneck to Toblach, through the das Höhlenstein valley and up to the Three Peaks (surcharge). The route back takes you to Lake Misurina, on to Cortina d'Ampezzo, across the Falzarego pass to St. Kassian and back to Bruneck through the Gader valley.
