Skiing, cross-country skiing & tobogganing

Winter holiday

It's not the ususal picture of a long queue that awaits you in East Tirol. A little less is more!

Winter holidays desire tranquillity, joy and recreation. Childrens eyes search for diversity and adventure, children need their amusement. The holiday region East Tirol in co-operation with the familiy specialist FAMOS (family holiday in East Tirol) offer this experience! The rest is provided by the nature with the idyllic landscapes, wonderful winter dreams and many sunny days!

Ski and snowboard schools offer courses for kids and grown-ups! The many ski kindergartens and their trained instructors guarantee that your kids will have puffy cheeks and sparkling eyes, be it from skiing or building snowmen. But there is also a lot to discover and experience off the ski slopes: a wide range of animation programs, such as night hikes with torches, snow shoe races, ice curling or simple ice skating, for example, such as on the frozen Tristach lake...

Even off the slopes, fun is not neglected here in Lienz. Numerous toboggan runs invite you to racy descents on two rails.

In other places you will find countless lifts, but here you encounter ski-touring destinations like sand on a beach. Some appropriate for rookies, and others just for pros - for the depths of winter, and also for the start of springtime. Some truly special highlights await inside the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region.
