Osttirol – Unrivaled winter wonderland
The Großglockner resort of Kals-Matrei is the biggest and most popular one of all seven ski areas in Osttirol, offering some 150 immaculate slope kilometers. Winter guests enjoy unrivaled skiing fun on sun-flooded slopes. The Adlerlounge – Austria's highest toque awarded restaurant (2621 m) – promises culinary delights plus uninterrupted panoramic views of 60 peaks higher than three thousand meters. Osttirol's Defereggental makes a real insider tip for ski aficionados. Families hit the slopes at Golzentipp in Obertilliach, a small but fine ski area with romantic log huts in traditional Tirolean style. The SkiHit ski pass gives unlimited access to all ski regions in Osttirol (child discounts up to 18 years). Additionally, the Hochpustertal ski region in Sillian features the ultimate Yellowsnow snow park for young artists on snow. The authentic Villgratental valley ranks among Austria's most beautiful ski mountaineering spots in almost untouched landscapes. But Osttirol has a lot more to offer: Lienz – the main town with great Italian charm – invites visitors to enjoy a shopping tour and stop by at one of the hip bars, pubs and restaurants.
