The little mountain village Untertilliach is located at 1,235 m asl in the beautiful Lesachtal valley.
Altitude: 1,235 m asl
Untertilliach, located close to the border of Carinthia and Italy between the pilgrimage site Maria Luggau and Obertilliach, warmly welcomes you. The little centre of the village is characterised by a range of farmhouses and little chapels, surrounded by the majestic mountains of East Tyrol.
Recreation in the heart of nature - this is what holidays in Untertiliach are about! The breathtaking mountains will be the centre of your summer holidays. Peaks like the Eggenkofel (2,581 m asl), the Hochspitz (2,581 m asl) or the Reiterkarspitze (2,422 m asl) offer perfect conditions for mountain tours. We hope you are free from giddiness, so that you can enjoy the panoramic view to the Lienz Dolomites! Also the Kircher Almen pastures (2,104 m asl), which can be reached within two hours from the centre of the village, are a popular destination. The view down into the Lesachtal valley is a popular photo motif.
And in winter? Due to its high position, in the cold season the mountain village becomes a fairyland - snow flakes dance round the ancient farmhouses. The “Grenzlandloipe”, a cross-country ski track which connects the localities of Kartitsch, Obertilliach and Untertilliach with the Carinthian villages Maria Luggau e St. Lorenzen im Lesachtal, goes past the village. Furthermore the winter offer includes the 10 km long high-altitude trail Dorfberg and the 14.3 km long Untertilliach loop. By the way, did you know that a valid cross-country ski track card enables you to take the ski shuttle service for free?
Our recommendation: three taverns provide delicacies of the national as well as the regional cuisine. We highly recommend you the “Schlutzkrapfen”, which are kind of stuffed ravioli, or deer plates!
