We have something extra special for our Osttirol friends, fans, and guests: the memory-function on our website.
To get to Iselsberg-Stronach you have to venture a little on the Iselsbergpass. Then you will find yourself in a lovely location, in a town with some 600 inhabitants (as at 01.01.2013). This small, yet perfectly formed town is located at the road which links the Lienz valley floor with Mölltal. In the west and south Iselsberg-Stronach borders Dölsach; in the east and the north you almost have a foot in Carinthia, since Iselsberg-Stronach borders Winklern in Carinthia. You can, as is almost standard in East Tyrol, do more than just look at the mountains all around. The Schober group and the Kreuzeck group frame Iselberg-Stronach and impart more than just a little charm. Mountaineers will find a second home here. The centre of the village sits at a proud 1117 metres, which enables you to enjoy a superb view to the East Tyrolean mountains. Yet it is not just the view from Iselberg-Stronach that you ought to have enjoyed; no, it’s also worth taking a closer look at the town itself.
The Schutzengelkirche, which is located in the centre of the village is very much worth seeing. That Iselberg-Stronach, even by East Tyrolean standards, sits nestled in a great and privileged position in the midst of a wonderful mountain landscape, is demonstrated by an impressive fact – of the 246 houses, a full 52 are second holiday homes. This puts it right at the top. There is probably nowhere else in East Tyrol which has a greater proportion of holiday homes. The view to the Lienz basin and one which is directed almost inevitably to the Lienz Dolomites, certainly had a part to play in this. Anyone who enjoys a holiday here understands what a holiday in the mountains really means and can mean. The climate certainly has a say in the matter as to why Iselsberg-Stronach is so attractive. In winter due to its south-facing location on the mountain slope, it is a few degrees warmer than in the valley floor. And in summer the wind in the pass tempers the summer temperatures.
