In King Laurin's kingdom
King Laurin and his rose garden
Long, long time ago, when there were still giants and dwarves in the Alpine valleys,
Dwarf King Laurin ruled inside his mountain, known by the name of Rosengarten.
He horded incredible treasures ...
Rosengarten - Latemar - Bletterbach
Le Corbusier once called the Dolomites "the world's finest example of natural architecture". In fact, the natural spectacle which takes place
every day at sunset when the peaks of the Rosengarten glow with an intense red colour and the village of Welschnofen is enveloped in an atmosphere of magic,
is beyond compare.
On Friday, 26th June 2009, the Dolomites
were placed on the prestigious list of Natural World Heritage Sites
The decision was made by UNESCO at its annual world congress.
was enchanted by the beauty of the Dolomites: pointed spires, jagged summits and glorious colors that change throughout the day.
At sunset the Dolomites turn a fiery red, then change to violet before disappearing into the night.
This is the “Enrosadira” – a phenomenon caused by the unusual chemical composition of dolomite – a natural spectacle that is beyond compare.
