During the winter months, not only the landscape and the mountains around Lienz are turned into a romantic winter wonderland, the city itself also radiates a special flair - especially in the Advent season. On cold winter days, when the Christmas lighting in the streets is turned on and the city centre smells like roasted almonds, people enjoy a warming mulled wine from the stalls of the Advent market on the main square in Lienz.
One or the other hand-made Osttirolean product is bought an the Advent calendar created by local by artists on the facade of the Liebburg can be marvelled at. The Advent decoration in the heart of the city is complemented by atmospheric music. When the Advent market closes its gates, the Dreikönigsmarkt market with local stalls opens on the Johannesplatz in Lienz. Here you can get delicacies, artisan craftwork and genuine products from the region and elsewhere. The winter market "Osttirol de Luxe" is also a definite must when you visit Lienz in winter! 14 differently themed gourmet pavilions offer the best cuisine from Osttirol.
Throughout the winter, the two ski areas Hochstein and Zettersfeld invite you to ski on their slopes. Here you ride down the sun-kissed slopes on Zettersfeld or the World Cup slope on Hochstein. In addition to the fantastic mountains, you will always enjoy a view onto the city of Lienz - the model city for a better life!
