Col Margherita Park
Family & Fun
- Alpe Lusia – San Pellegrino
- Col Margherita (2550m)
The Dolomites have many stories to tell to those who have the patience to stop observing them and play with them in the new theme park; built on Col Margherita (2514m) in collaboration with the Trento “MUSE” Science Museum and the geologist Dr Claudio Valle, Col Margherita Park sparks the curiosity of adults and children as they discover the 9 UNESCO mountain systems. The Park is easily accessible by cable car from the San Pellegrino Pass and unfolds along a route made up of 3 different installations, where you can have fun and learn about volcanoes, glaciers, islands, sea beds, geological eras and fossils, all surrounded by a beautiful 360° panoramic view overlooking the peaks of the Dolomites.
ISLANDS OR MOUNTAINS?
The journey of discovery in the Dolomites begins with a 30-metre path, along which each metre corresponds to 10 million years: suspended in time, you will move through the geological eras and the main milestones of the birth of these UNESCO World Heritage Mountains.
SUSPENDED IN TIME
The adventure continues with an exciting timed challenge as you search for fossils and finds that characterise each of the nine Dolomite groups, where extensive pools of evidence are embedded in the rocks of the setting in which real living organisms were born and lived, before they died and became forever covered by marine deposits.
THE HELM OF THE DOLOMITES
At the panoramic highest point of Col Margherita, standing at 2550 metres high, there is an actual interactive deck that enables you to play with the outlines of the Dolomite peaks that soar all around you. From up there, a single 360° view enables you to see all 9 of the Dolomite groups and try to guess their names with a special Helm of the Dolomites. When the sky is cloudy the game becomes even more fun and challenging!
