Hiking in East Tyrol – Relaxation for body, spirit and soul

Hiking. Even the word sounds outmoded. Maybe we should call it ‘rambling’? Sounds somewhat English. At any rate, hiking has for centuries been the most frequent method of travel - a way of moving which is experiencing a new Renaissance now. Key concepts – slowing down, decelerating.

Re-discovering slowness

What could be more lovely than ‘decelerating’ in natural surroundings? Re-discovering slowness and the little things in life for yourself again. Scaling a mountain by the sweat of your brow and signing on in the summit book at the summit cross. Then celebrating reaching the summit in a traditional alpine inn, with a ‘Radler’ and a ‘Brettljause’. East Tyrol and its pristine mountain landscapes, its more than 200 bothies and mountain inns ensure relaxation, tranquillity and deceleration.

It is for all age groups. Whether it is leisurely hiking trails in the Lienz Becken, which tempt you to enjoy long walks, or the themed trails through the wild landscapes along the thundering mountain streams, which recount how difficult life in the Alps was. And last, not least, the steep trails up to the snow-covered summits – hiking in East Tyrol provides relaxation for body, spirit and soul.
