Learning paths within the Lienz Dolomites

Roundloop walking trail "Dorfrunde Gaimberg"

On the Gaimberg village circuit visitors hike through fields in the sunny side of Lienz, perhaps asking themselves where the name "Totenweg" came from, why there are so many walls here and what purpose a hayrack serves.
Hikers find out more interesting information about all this and how this unique cultural landscape came about on the stations along this themed trail. There is another notice board providing information about the mountains in the Lienz Dolomites and their tourist connections. The "Sonnenplatzl" at Graendorfer church tempts you to enjoy a rest - a sundial here reveals "what hour has struck".
