Gaimberg, which, as of 1st January 2013, had 857 inhabitants, is favourably located on the south-facing side of the Lienz valley floor. The town extends from the south-facing slope of the Zettersfeld and covers a mere 7.28 square kilometres. This somewhat manageable surface area makes Gaimberg, in terms of surface area, the smallest town in East Tyrol. Small indeed, but oh so nice. And completely steeped in history. For instance, in 1935 during excavation works, remains of a Roman villa and fragments of a bronze statue were found.

So the Romans had made themselves comfortable here quite some time ago. They were right to. Indeed, it is not just one or another remains of villas and bronze statues that you might perhaps find here in the near future. You will also find a few sights, without having to dig. The Zettersfeld ski area which for the most part is located in the area, opens up undreamt-of opportunities for skiing in the winter.
