Between summits and feelings.
Glad meadows, joyful flowers.
I call you by name, you Dolomite giants.
And you call it back to me.
A glance beyond the meadows reveals the summits of the Dolomites, majestic as they reach to the clouds. The Langkofel, Plattkofel, Schlern, the Sella massif: the most beautiful peaks of this UNESCO world natural heritage site are on the horizon, in the sky – it is almost impossible to view them enough. The ragged clouds dance round them, the sun paints these age-old, unyielding giants of rock that are nevertheless constantly changing.
Fresh green meadows form a soft, undulating carpet. The Seiser Alm is Europe’s largest high pasture. Perhaps, too, the most beautiful? It is enchanting – and enchanted! The Schlern, the witches’ mountain, can be seen from practically anywhere on the 60km² or so of the Alm. And there is the lively town of Kastelruth with its magnificent church tower! But peace prevails in and around the Hotel Icaro. No engine noise: it is a car-free zone. Peace, and just the mountains calling. And, right in the middle, I.
