There are two links between the South Tyrolean mountain guides and UNESCO.  

On the one hand, there is the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site, which encompasses large parts of one of the most important areas in which South Tyrolean mountain guides work and aims to preserve their - according to the UNESCO declaration - "unique scenic beauty". The Dolomites have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2009.

Exactly ten years after the Dolomites were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site at the end of 2019, UNESCO recognised alpinism in France, Italy and Switzerland as an intangible World Heritage Site, thereby underlining its historical, social and cultural significance. One of the pillars of UNESCO's recognition - alongside Alpine associations and mountain rescue services - are the approximately 5,000 mountain guides recognised in the three countries, their expertise and tradition.
