Is there anything better than a blissful, warm summer day for letting your soul unwind, breathing in fresh, clean mountain air, and marvelling at the breath-taking view of the surrounding mountains? Your well-earned summer holiday in the idyllic village of Lavant in Eastern Tyrol offers everything that active sports enthusiasts, those looking for relaxation, families and happy couples could want. Lavant, your ideal holiday destination is located at the foot of the impressive Lienz Dolomites, near the sunny village of Lienz and near the border to Carinthia and Southern Tyrol! Make sure you have your Osttirol Card so you do not miss out on the many attractive discounts you will receive in shops, museums and at the most popular excursion destinations!
Sheer hiking bliss
Lavant and the sunny Lienz valley is the ideal starting point for your Eastern Tyrolean hiking adventure: discover nature on the impressive Zettersfeld mountain, in the majestic Lienz Dolomites, or on the nearby Großvenediger and Großglockner mountains. All of these options offer leisure hikers, ambitious mountaineers and climbers who aren’t afraid of heights a variety of excellent routes! One particular experience worth mentioning is a guided adventure tour through the Hohe Tauern National Park; it invites you to discover the rare fauna and flora and is led by one of our trained mountain guides or experienced national park rangers.
Discovery tours on two wheels
The popular Drauradweg cycling trail starts at the Drau river’s origin at Toblacher Feld in Italy and winds for 366 km through Eastern Tyrol and Carinthia to the city of Maribor in Slovenia. And it also travels through our beautiful village of Lavant, passing by Michelerhof’s front door, your summer holiday home away from home! Another beautiful alternative and insider’s tip (but not for long!) is the new and quieter cycling trail that winds through the idyllic Iselstal valley! Unforgettable impressions of nature await you both there and on one of the many mountain bike tours offered through the Lienz Dolomites – try them on a motorcycle too! For example, experience an adventure on the Großglockner high Alpine road with its many twists and turns and take in the beautiful view!
Shopping fun and cultural offers
The small village of Lavant has a big history. Take an exciting trip through time when you visit the museum and excavation sites. The Celts, Romans and early Christians all left their marks on our small village located at the base of the Lienz Dolomite mountains. Furthermore, history buffs should not miss the provincial Roman villa in Aguntum in nearby Dölsach. There is a great deal of culture, but also shopping fun and culinary delights to be had in beautiful Lienz, the town with the most hours of sunshine in all of Austria! Stroll through the vast main square and marvel at its colourful buildings, flowers and palm trees, and breathe in the pleasant Mediterranean fragrance and southern flair from a café table.
Water, wellness, and pure action
Water enthusiasts can spend a summer’s day in the cool waters of the fairy-tale-like natural jewel, Lake Tristacher, or in the Dolomitenbad pools in Lienz! The one-of-a-kind wellness centre, Vitalpinum in Assling, promises pure Alpine wellness with its fragrant medicinal herb garden, the ZEN wellness garden and a Schnapps distillery exhibition. Those seeking a little more action do not need to look far! Get a rush of adrenaline and a breath-taking panoramic view of Lienz on a trip down the fast-paced summer toboggan run, Osttirodler am Hochstein. Or make your way through the Tyrol’s largest high ropes course, the Kletterpark am Schlossberg climbing park in Lienz.
