The holiday region, which takes its name from the western part of the Gailtal Alps, includes the area from Lienz to the Lavanttal valley.
Lienz, the capital of East Tyrol, is a lovely town which is very interesting from a cultural point of view: Bruck Castle with its museum e.g. are repeatedly venue for exhibitions and concerts. Thanks to the combination of Mediterranean flair and the excellent restaurants offering Tyrolean delicacies, Lienz and its holiday villages render this area a very popular destination. In summer, great hiking areas such as Mt. Hochstein offer a splendid view, in winter the Lienzer Bergbahnen Skiing Area as well as the cross-country ski trails and the winter hiking trails in the valley await you.
