East Tyrol: Is it not that this area, with its town of Lienz and which is large in terms of surface area, yet small in terms of inhabitants, is different to North Tyrol, as even its name suggests? Yes, definitely. Yet there is much more to East Tyrol than just its geographic location.
For East Tyrol is different. More authentic, original, more genuine, more reduced. Reduced to the essential, the fundamental. To what it really needs.
Mountains. East Tyrol is mountain Tyrol.
During a holiday in East Tyrol all the activities are grouped around the mountains. Since they are not only higher, mightier and more impressive than it the rest of Tyrol, they define the landscape and life like almost nowhere else. Whether it is to go hiking, skiing, snow-shoe hiking or tobogganing, everything is framed and bordered by the omnipresence of the mountains in East Tyrol. A holiday in East Tyrol could even be said to be like that of a painting, particularly due to the picturesque landscape. It is no wonder that many well-known painters come from beautiful East Tyrol and have immortalised these landscapes. You aren’t short-changed when it comes to nature, and culture too. Numerous museums are waiting to be explored.
Anyone who believes that a mountain is a mountain hasn’t experienced East Tyrol and its mountains. They haven’t experienced all the differences and specifics of the respective regions in East Tyrol. So, during your next holiday in East Tyrol is it to be the Lienz Dolomites and its scenic assets? Or the East Tyrol section of Hochpustertal? The Hohe Tauern National Park on the East Tyrol side offers really unspoilt natural surroundings, which you barely find anywhere else. Anyone who explores this on snowshoes for instance, can think of themselves as being in a natural paradise, far removed from the humdrum of daily life. Beauty and nature are best when they are overdosed and where could this be better than in Defereggental, which is far and wide one of the least densely populated valleys? No huge hotel complexes, no mass tourism; anywhere. This is an alien concept in all of East Tyrol. What you do get here is active hospitality. The scenic charm and culinary treats make the overall picture totally complete. A holiday in East Tyrol: a complete package, consisting of mountains, nature, culture, cuisine and genuine, authentic hospitality.
