History & Culture of the Dolomites

The First World War in the mountains

How much the First World War has influenced the history of the Dolomites is well known. This tragic and extremely moving period of time deserves to be remembered - with the help of carefully guarded instruments that stand against oblivion. The numerous hiking trails will lead you past the trenches and positions, which show the harsh living conditions of the soldiers at this time. Museums such as the Creste del Costabella or the open-air museum flatly will bring you closer to the time capsules.
