A summer holiday in the Lienz Dolomites

Anyone who approaches East Tyrol from the north – somewhat above the Felbertauern – have it easy after crossing the pass. It is here that the ‘South’, and all its benefits, begins. It is not for nothing that the East Tyrolean metropolis of Lienz proudly bears the title of ‘sunny town’. The diversity of this landscape is another defining characteristic. Here the gentle Lienz basin, there the steeply towering pinnacles of the Lienz Dolomites. An exciting landscape, which was even held in high regard by the Romans when they constructed the Aguntum.

The flat Lienz basin is excellent for a family holiday and for stress-free relaxation, for instance on long excursions by bike. Inner balance can also be found during an extended game of ‘Dolomitengolf’, on the exquisite 27-hole course. Those who want things to be more leisurely and sporty, can head for the mighty mountains. The Lienz Dolomites are a paradise for climbers, mountain hikers, mountain bikers and also for water sports. Increasing numbers of keen flyers are being attracted - ideal wind conditions provide extraordinary flying moments in the summer. A summer holiday in the Lienz Dolomites holiday region will leave you wanting for nothing.
