Welcome to Hochpustertal

Hochpustertal does not “belong” to East Tyrol alone. East Tyrol has to “share” this beautiful valley with South Tyrol. In East Tyrol the route from Sillian to Lienz is a part of this region. Even though Pustertal is effectively split on the East Tyrol side, Hochpustertal is a real paradise.

Winter holiday in Hochpustertal

Special in winter, especially for cross-country skiers. Snow-assuredness is an understatement in this region and you can take the concept of cross-country skiing as read here. You really can enjoy cross-country skiing far and wide here, since there is an unbelievable 160 kilometres of tracked slopes. A figure which really is a bit of alright. The border area slope at Obertilliach and the border area slope at Kartitsch are also slopes which are worth cross-country skiing on for those of you who like to take themselves to their own limits and to state limits too. Yet it is not just the hearts of every cross-country skier which beat higher; oh no, hiking is only one theme here.
