A must for your holiday in Val Pusteria in the Dolomites is a visit to the Three Peaks – UNESCO World Heritage Site! The Three Peaks are located in the Sextener Dolomiten on the border between the Italian provinces of Belluno in the south and South Tyrol in the north. Up here you can enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding Dolomite peaks.
The highest elevation of the group is the 2,999 m high Great Pinnacle – this stands between the Western Pinnacle and the Small Pinnacle.
In particular, the view of the steep north faces is one of the best-known alpine landscape pictures and is considered a landmark of the Dolomites. During the mountain war in the First World War, the Three Peaks were fiercely contested, and today you can still see many tunnels.
