The valley of Gailtal, Tyrol

A relaxing holiday in a salubrious landscape

The river Gail rises in the mossy meadows close to Karitsch. It gave the valley that is also known as the Tyrolean Lesachtal, its name. Rolling hills and the sheer rock walls of great mountains characterise the landscape of the Hochpustertal between the Lienz Dolomites and the Carmic Alps. Crystal-clear creeks, too many to count, make their way through mountain pastures, green forests and wildflower meadows down to the valley. The climate is equally diverse. During the summer, warm days alternate with colder ones, in winter it is often clear and sunny. Thanks to the altitude, snow doesn’t melt quickly.

“Where people are still one with nature.”

Obertilliach is surrounded by mountains like Filmoorhöhe, Steinrastl and Golzentipp. Their peaks offer a spectacular view of the Sexten Dolomites, the Julian Alps and the three-thousanders of the High Tauern in the north of East Tyrol. The interplay between pristine nature and agriculturally cultivated landscape has led to a high diversity of wildlife. Countless flowers and herbs grow in the meadows. The forests are filled with different kinds of moss, mushrooms and berries. Chamois climb stony paths and eagles soar high up in the air.

Picturesque Obertilliach is a wonderful holiday destination for people of all ages. The salubrious landscape offers ample opportunity for pleasure, discovery and sports. The Gailtal in the Hochpustertal with its many unforgettable moments will quickly let you leave behind the everyday grind.
