Fliess

Fliess is a small village, which offers active holidaymakers a panorama pool, tennis courts, and possibilities to try rafting.

Altitude: 1,073 m a.s.l.

200 m above the Inn Valley there's Fliess, an enclosed village with irregular plots of land and farms at the foot of Mt. Krahberg in the Venet Massif. In Roman times, it represented an important weigh station, and also the famous Roman Road Via Claudia Augusta led through Fliess.

If you are interested in culture, you'll be at the right place: The foundations of the oldest church of the area were discovered at Fliess and date back to the 6th century. Also several findings were made, that are precious from an archaeological point of view, such as the "Kathreinfund" dating back to the Hallstatt period: In 1990, at the Kathrein Farm in Fliess, a large number of metal items such as axes, jewellery and jars were found. Due to this fact, the culture of the Hallstatt period had to be upgraded, and the Archaeological Museum Fliess was inaugurated.

Also the offers regarding leisure time activities are widespread: Fliess is part of the Nature Park Kaunergrat and therefore perfect for extended walks, hikes and bike tours. As the steppe slopes in the surroundings of Fliess are habitat for, believe it or not, 1,500 types of butterflies, and as the hill more at the Piller Sattel is also interesting in terms of nature, this area has been put under natural protection. Popular destinations are also the show dairy at the Gogles Mountain Hut and the show herb garden at Fliess. in winter, however, near Fliess and Zams there is the Venet Skiing Area.
