An active vacation in East Tyrol
Holiday cottages in Eastern Tyrol are very popular with fans of extreme sports, as there is a large range of activities available, such as mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing, boating and hiking, which means that in whichever season you choose to travel here, be it summer or winter, there will be something to do.

The capital of East Tyrol is Lienz, home to 12,000 people, and is an excellent place to stay with a variety of historic buildings to see. At Christmas, the town hall turns into a giant advent calendar, which is great fun for the whole family! Bruck Castle is also a great place to visit, once the residence of the Meinhardiner Counts of Görz which has now been turned into a museum. Walk around and explore this area from your Eastern Tyrol apartment, and visit the shops and taverns for a break. In the evening, return to your cosy rental property in these pretty surroundings and enjoy the views and a well deserved rest.
Eastern Tyrol - Wonderful ski conditions
Close by is the Roman city of Aguntum. Here you can admire the remains of this ancient city and re-live what went on in the past. From an Eastern Tyrol holiday cottage, trips to Matrei are also not a problem. This idyllic small town is nestled into the valley of the mountains, Hohen Tauern. A favourite place to visit is the ski resort located in Goldreif. This is the perfect site to go skiing or just have a crazy snowball fight! If you are wanting to make the most out of your vacation, why not visit the bordering countries. The Alpine town Bolzano is located in the Dolomites in Italy, and is only a train ride away, or perhaps pop over the border to Switzerland and stay in a rental property in the area of Davos.
