The Rosengarten is part of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage
The Rosengarten is one of the most famous massifs of the Dolomites. Situated between the Tiers and the Fassa valley, the Rosengarten stretches over 8 km from the Schlern area to the Karer Pass. Among the most important peaks are the Vajolet peak (2749 m) and the Vajolet towers, after which we named our hotel. Other important peaks are the Kesselkogel (3004 m), the Rosengarten peak (2981 m), the Teufelwand (2727 m), the Rotwand (2806 m) and the Laurinswand (2813 m).
The mountain massif of the legend owes its name to the dwarf King Laurin, more precisely to his mysterious garden high up on the mountain. Always in the evening when the sun shines its rays obliquely on the mountain massif, the garden glows red and becomes visible to the people.
