We have something extra special for our Osttirol friends, fans, and guests: the memory-function on our website.
St. Jakob in Defereggen is something quite special for many reasons. St. Jakob has a full 891 inhabitants. Doesn’t sound like a lot, but it is; particularly since Defereggen valley is not exactly densely populated. Since here the fact that is enough to be the ‘main town’, one that is the biggest and the most population dense town in the valley, reveals more about the valley than about the town itself. What probably should be said however is that the main town in Defereggen valley has so many special features, which makes it what it is – idyllic. Set in a wonderful location and certainly worthy of a few lengthy stays. St. Jakob has some impressive figures.
For instance, St. Jakob, covering 185.96 km2, is the second largest town in the district of Lienz. A full 123 km2 of which is protected due to the Hohe Tauern National Park. This means there is lots of space and unspoilt, natural surroundings. The mountainous section of the district area is considerable, so there is only a little bit of space for agriculture and settlements. Less than almost anywhere else. This is all the better since it means that there is more room for nature and the evident beauty, so visitors get to enjoy more and to gaze in amazement.+
