The Museum of the World Natural Heritage of the Dolomites
Explore the wonders of the Dolomites, presented by Michael Wachtler. His discovery of Megachirella Wachtleri (the ancestor of all snakes and lizards) attracted enormous attention. This sensational discovery formed the centrepiece for his new museum of the Dolomites, and helped persuade the UNESCO commission of the unique character of this area’s Natural Heritage. Go on a journey of discovery through the unique wonders of this landscape.

The Wachtlers have always been great adventurers. They were among the first to climb the Dolomites and when they first saw skis being used in Nordic countries, they were very enthusiastic about this new way of travelling.
