Experiencing Sexten

Dolomites UNESCO Fest - Mountain Week Sexten - Sesto

Start of the alpine summer in Sexten - Sesto with a various programme of guided tours and hikes in the Dolomites of Sexten – Sesto, part of the Dolomites World Heritage – as well as diverse evening events. In cooperation with the alpine school Three Peaks and the Nature Park Three Peaks we offer relevant lectures and guided mountain tours on magnificent panoramic trails.

Saturday, the 9th of June 2018 from 11.00 a.m. at Kreuzbergpass - Passo Monte Croce:
Opening of the via ferrata circuit “DOLOMITI SENZA CONFINI” (DOLOMITES WITHOUT BORDERS) and beginning of the Dolomites UNESCO Fest.
Inauguration of the first and unique, cross-border alpine path composed of via ferratas in Europe. A great pleasure for all via ferrata fans – on old military routes, through trenches and galleries. Where 100 years ago in the First World War new frontlines were created, now in the year 2018 this region becomes a place of meeting and friendship – a path of peace named “Dolomiti senza confini” –, walkable for the first time.
This is followed by the Dolomites UNESCO Fest, an appointment for all people and friends of the Dolomites, at Passo Monte Croce, on the border between the provinces Bolzano and Belluno, with authentic live music from the Pusteria valley, folkloristic dance groups from Comelico and much more. An information stand of the Nature Park Visitor Centre Three Peaks and the Alpine School Sesto – Three Peaks as well as experiments and handicraft works with natural materials for kids round off the event.
