When it comes to mountaineering and climbing, East Tyrol is a true treasure chamber with prominent peaks such as the Grossglockner and Grossvenediger, but also with many undiscovered spots.
The Grossglockner, the highest peak in Austria with 3,798 metres altitude, is the top dog. No other summit is so famous and so coveted. Yet it is only one among the 266 three-thousand-metre peaks East Tyrol has to offer. There can only be one answer to the question where in East Tyrol you can go mountaineering. Those looking for famous tours here won't have to look for long. The Grossvenediger above the Innergschlöss is another classic. The bizarre peaks of the Lienz Dolomites also enjoy cult status. But East Tyrol has more than just famous peaks. The Nationalpark Hohe Tauern is a guarantor for pristine natural landscapes, providing a gentle approach to unforgettable experiences of nature. The local mountain guides are competent and reliable partners on the search for your individual summit bliss. With their help, you can experience hidden beauties and dream tours, which create memories for an entire mountaineering life.
The locals call the Lienz Dolomites with their bizarre rock formations "the fiends" in the vernacular. The routes and tours in the Lienz Dolomites are hotspots of the climbing scene. But a hot spot in the East Tyrol does not mean one roped party backed up behind another. Quite the opposite. A great number of the tours are true insider tips away from well-known routes. Especially novices and beginners can step into their first pitches with no hurry.
