Description

A not so easy route with some 833 metres altitude and covering 15,5 km on Lienz’s Hausberg, which stands out with its panoramic views of the Lienz Dolomites and the Schober group. The starting point for the tour is the time-honoured Bruck Castle, former place of residence of the Counts of Görz. Built at the start of the 13th century, from the medieval castle to the west of the town of Lienz there are views to the Lienz valley floor, and also to the Iseltal. The tour continues from the castle through the forest, climbing steadily, to the junction at Taxer Moos, then later beneath the ski lift route to Sternalm, a popular excursion destination and a place where the people of Lienz enjoy a refreshment stop. Anyone who is now exhausted can enjoy a bit of time-out on the large Sternalm sun terrace and sun lounger area. The descent to Leisach is also an option via the "Horniss" (Route 106). From Leisach ride then via the Drau cycle trail back to Lienz. Culture tip: Bruck Castle is home to the museum of Lienz and the Albin Egger-Lienz gallery.
