Family holidays in East Tyrol and beyond its borders

Numerous experiences in East Tyrol and South Tyrol wait for the whole family

Your holidays in East Tyrol are not only confined to the area of East Tyrol - not at all. Obertilliach is not far from the Italian border. Therefore it is only a short way to the famous Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Three Peaks of Lavaredo) and to the villages of Toblach and Innichen. Or you follow the Lesachtal out of the valley and pay a visit to East Tyrol’s capital Lienz. For day trips, a glance beyond Obertilliach’s borders is worthwhile in any case.

South Tyrol’s highlights for your family holiday

South Tyrol: A contrast between alpine roughness and Mediterranean charm the further you go towards Meran. Go on a day trip to the impressive high mountains of the Dolomites, visit enchanted mountain lakes and blooming alpine meadows in summer. The Dolomites were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and have a lot more to offer besides the peaks of the Tre Cime: Italian pleasures, cultural sights or simply a day on the alpine meadows enrich your family holidays. Although the Hotel Scherer lies on the Austrian side South Tyrol is only a day trip away.

Explore East Tyrol/Lienz with the children

Within 40 minutes from the Almfamilyhotel Scherer in Obertilliach you can reach East Tyrol’s district capital Lienz. A stroll over Lienz’ central square with shopping for the adults and then fun for the children: The Castle Hill of Lienz with petting zoo, adventure playground, climbing park and the 2.7 km tobogganing run, the Osttirodler, offers a fantastic leisure programme for all age groups. Or how about a trip to the wildlife park in Assling, to the family park Zettersfeld with adventure path, to the national park Hohe Tauern or to the rushing Galitzenklamm?

No matter if in the snowy winter season or in sunny summer, skiing, hiking or excursions: In East Tyrol, every season has its charms. After the experiences you can go back to the Almfamilyhotel Scherer where the whole family finds cosy retreat. While you enjoy a delicious evening menu you let the day’s experiences pass in review and make plans for the next day. There is a lot to experience, that’s for sure in your family holidays in Austria.
