With 1853 souls, the town of Assling is middle of the table when it comes to inhabitant numbers. The town could be described as being just right – not too big and not too small. The interesting thing about Assling is that tourism plays something of a minor role. Assling is still a fantastic place to explore in winter and summer alike. And there really is truly a great deal to explore here. In summer there is a summer toboggan run, tennis courts and the relaxing Vitalpinum garden. A mountaineer’s heart will however race when they catch a glimpse of the broad network of hiking trails. There will probably not be enough time to investigate all the trails during a hiking holiday in Assling and the surrounding area. You can also swing your leg over your bike and cycle along the Drau cycle trail.

Those for whom that is too leisurely and who prefer to head out into the mountains on their bike, rather than just gaze at them from a safe distance, always have the Pustertal high altitude road and Wilfernertal and Kristeinertal. You won’t have a long search for activities in winter since there are also lift facilities and a slope along the Drau. You can also have a go at the wantonly underestimated sport of tobogganing here too. Assling, which was mentioned in documents dating from 1030, has a considerable number of conservation-protected buildings. These number 40.

Especially worthy of note is St. Martin’s church and possibly the very charming “Zum heiligsten Herzen Jesu” town chapel too. Probably the best thing to do is to make tracks and discover the town off your own bat. You can be sure that you’ll come across one hidden gem of another. The nice thing about it is that Assling is still, as overnight stay figures how, an insider tip among the holiday destinations in East Tyrol. You ought to explore it for yourself before others do.
