In addition to the sunny city of Lienz, Osttirol also has a sunny village in the Virgental Valley - we are talking about the picturesque village of Virgen. South of the Venediger Group , the community lies at just under 1,200 meters above sea level in the National Park Hohe Tauern. Next to the shapely mountain peaks, the ruins of Rabenstein Castle tower majestically above the sunny plateau of Virgen.
Virgen owes its name of sunny village mainly to the south-facing peaks of the Lasörling group . Since these are significantly lower than their neighbors, the sun shines here even in the depths of winter a few hours longer than elsewhere.
