St. Jakob as an alpine ‘climbing town’

Defereggen valley has blossomed into an East Tyrolean paradise for those who love mountain sports. 44 climbing tours in the summer and 30 ice climbing tours in winter. Its clear positioning in terms of climbing, mountaineering and hiking is manifest in the climbing crags. Long distance alpine hiking is promoted from St. Jakob. It is no wonder that this offer attracts young climbers too.
