A skating and cross-country skiing paradise in East Tyrol
Once you have been on the cross-country trails in Hochpustertal - particularly in Tyrol's Gailtal valley between Kartitsch, Ober- and Untertilliach - you'll never want to go skating or cross-country skiing anywhere else.
Unlimited hiking and guaranteed snow!
Guaranteed snow is also very important for cross-country skiing, which is why there are at least 5km of trails with snow making machines here. There are a total of 120 km of groomed trails, including the villages in Pustertal and Innervillgraten valleys.
In the garden of the Dolomites
The Hochpustertal Holiday Region lies nestled between the Lienz and South Tyrolean Dolomites. And this 'front garden' will make families in particular feel completely at home. Leisurely hikes to the highest cultivated Alpine pastures in Austria at Villgratental; the Pustertal High Alpine road with its imposing views and sights; Tyrolean Gailtal with the Carnic Mountain Trail and Drauradweg trail; combined with East Tyrolean hospitality and tradition, will make a holiday in Hochpustertal simply fly by.
Cultural treasures in Hochpustertal
Culture embraces nature: In Hochpustertal the cultural treasures are strung together like a pearl necklace. For example Anras Castle or Heinfels Castle, which in summer is a romantic setting for concerts during the Gustav Mahler Festival.
The Hochpustertal valley has some particularly attractive things in store for hikers and cyclists: the Carnic Mountain Trail was once a smugglers route between Austria and Italy, a fiercely fought over front in the First World War and later a long-distance footpath, which goes from East Tyrol to Carinthia, offering frequent detours into neighbouring Italy.
The World of the '3 Peaks
The most thrilling Alpine experience: The 'Drei Zinnen' Nature Park in the UNESCO world heritage Dolomites. A regular award-winning skiing area in winter; a paradise for hikers and families in summer.
