Long-distance hiking paths in Osttirol

Enjoy peace and tranquillity far away from rush and stress.

Set out on a journey on foot and get to know the mountains and valleys of the Lienz region intensely and close-up along various routes, partly also on the territory of the Hohe Tauern National Park. The wonderful view, the good air, the sports exercise and calling in at chalets and inns – all of this comes together as an unforgettable experience on a long-distance hike.

But what makes the routes through Osttirol so special? Their landscape. This endless wildness that can only still be found rarely in the Alps. This lonesomeness that the hiker goes through when leaving the few settlements behind and hikes ever deeper into the partly high alpine wilderness. Surrounded by three-thousand-metre peaks, wild streams and cultivated mountain farming landscapes.


As a long-distance hiker in Osttirol, you embark not only on a search for yourself – you also get to know and love the wild seclusion of Osttirol.

Overnight Stays in alpine huts in 2021

Special regulation due to COVID-19

  1. Please only come to our shelters if you are healthy!

  2. Bring your own face mask!

  3. Book your place to stay - no overnight stays without reservation!

  4. Overnight stays are only possible if you bring your own sleeping bag and pillow cover (light down or summer sleeping bags — chalet liners only are usually not thick enough to warm you)!


If physical separation cannot be set up in the dormitory, a distance of at least 1.5 metres from people not living in the same household is to be maintained.
