East Tyrol

East Tyrol constitutes the district of Lienz, the largest unitary district in Tyrol and the fourth largest in Austria. East Tyrol borders on the federal provinces of Salzburg and Carinthia as well as on the Italian regions of Alto Adige/ Trentino and Veneto. In the region of 50,000 people inhabit this Tyrolean enclave. East Tyrol is famous above all for its superb mountain scenery. In the north there are the Hohe Tauern with the highest mountains in the Alpine republic, and to the south you have the jagged peaks of the Lienz Dolomites and the main range of the Carnic Alps. It’s no wonder that East Tyrol is regarded as the ideal destination for ramblers, rock climbers and mountain hikers.

The Hohe Tauern National Park

The Hohe Tauern National Park is the largest of its kind in Austria. It covers a total area of 1,800km² and spans three federal provinces – Tyrol, Salzburg and Carinthia. The national park is home to 10,000 animal species including ibex, bearded and griffon vulture, which are very rarely encountered in other Alpine regions. There are also 1,800 different varieties of plants. Together with the wonderful mountain panorama of over 300 peaks rising to over 3,000m above sea level, this national park region is a truly unforgettable experience.
