In order to be an attractive holiday destination for young and old, Assling offers a wide range of leisure activities. Especially for families, the Assling Wildlife Park is a worthwhile attraction. After visiting the animals drop by the summer toboggan run. In the valley, the ViTHAL leisure centre attracts numerous visitors every year. It offers various activity options - a jump into the cool water seems to be just as tempting as a fast-paced tennis match. In direct proximity to the leisure centre also is the popular Drau Cycle Path, which leads to the district capital Lienz in a few minutes. The valley accommodates an insider tip among the East Tyrolean excursion destinations: The Vitalpinum. Nearby the Drau Cycle Path, the vital powers of the mountains and their herbs can be felt and experienced on 6,500 m2 here - for example on the Kneipp path.
During the winter months, the snowy landscape in and around Assling has a lot to offer anyway. The town has a small ski lift, where pure wintry mountain romance can still be experienced. By the way: the Compedal Skihütte (ski lodge) is a popular meeting place, where you can take a walk, toboggan or simply relax under the warming winter sun and in fresh mountain air.
