St. Veit in Defereggen

Looking for great hustle and bustle, the next big party and having ‘we party all night’ as the maxim for your holiday? Well, you won’t strike it rich in St. Veit. Since there is no hustle and bustle here; there are more of the things which only true connoisseurs know to appreciate. St. Veit in Defereggen valley, the highest located tranquil village, scores points on a whole other level; gourmets, connoisseurs and people who are looking for delicacies, all things fine and sophistication, will feel right at home in St. Veit. The real attraction here is the scenery and the originality and unadulterated nature of the village itself. The old farmhouses make it look as of this town has fallen out of time. Yet time has not stood still, it has just proceeded a little differently than it has done elsewhere. St. Veit has set great store upon having no huge buildings destroying the scenery. Rather everything nestles organically and logically into the gnarled, yet wonderful, landscape.

It is probably no wonder that this town has produced not completely unknown dialect poets like Reimmichl. You might assume that he would still recognise his homeland today too and that he might dedicate one poem or another to it. Yet it is not just fans of civilised poetry that are well catered for here, foodies are too. The cuisine here has remained as original and unspoilt as the village itself.
