Summer

A village where the night-watchman has been doing the rounds for centuries. Secluded valleys which have retained their own traditions. Right in the midst of the district capital of Lienz, with its medieval alleys, street cafés and Mediterranean style. Osttirol and its typical hospitality and cordiality epitomises traditional Tirol experiences – in the Hohe Tauern National Park region and Defereggental in the north, along with the Lienz Dolomites in the south-east and Hochpustertal to the south west.
Face to face with the highest mountains in Austria – the 3798 metre Großglockner and the 3666 metre Großvenediger – Alpine summer fairy-tales come true.

A total of 2500 kilometres of signposted hiking routes proceed to the thundering mountains streams in the valley, heading for genuine picture book alpine pastures which enjoy panoramic views and to secluded alpine lodges which enjoy the high alpine seclusion. While pleasure riders let the scenic beauty along the Drautal and Iseltal cycle trails take effect on them, ambitious guests in the biggest bike arena in the alpine area take themselves to their limits. Or how about something different - canyoning or rafting? No matter what holiday adventure you choose – along the route traditional inns offering Osttirol specialities tempt you in for a stop-off. And there’s no getting away from ‘Pregler’ – the master of all schnapps – one which farmers have been distilling for centuries from their apples and pears.
