for summiteers ...
Our local mountain - the black giant. Already on the way up, a wonderful panorama over the Lienz Dolomites as well as the Gailtaler and Karnische Alps appears. At the summit there is then a 360° dream panorama - not only on the white peaks of the Glockner, Goldberg and Ankogel groups.
Our secret favorite. The round trip from our house over Griebtischalm, Mokarspitz, Dachskofel and Leppner Knappensee is not only enormously varied and full of views, but above all wonderfully lonely and quiet. Nevertheless, in the summer you can still take advantage of three refreshment options with Griebitschalm, Ochsenerhütte and Gasthof Bergheimat along the way.GPS
You can see him from our house early in the morning in the reddish light of the rising sun and just think: I have to go there.... a wonderful peak on the edge of the Lienz Dolomites. The starting point of this rewarding mountain tour can be reached in a few minutes by car.
for epicures ...
THE energy place with dream panorama. Either on foot from our house via the hiking trail to the Leppner Alm or comfortably by car to the parking lot at approx. 1,650m.GPS
A quick walk from our front door via the mountain village hiking trail to Griebtisch takes you along a nice footpath over the wild Mödritschbach to Rosmaries Bergkräutergarten.GPS
The idyllic "Kissing Point" is located between Bergheimat and the Weneberger Alm. The hike, which can be extended over the Unteralmhütte, is a secret tip not only for romantics!GPS
For Mountain Bicyclist & Trail-Lovers ...
Whether high up or further down through the forest - there are some paths around our house. Of course, we also like to tell our guests about our favourite tracks.
The Bike Parks Lienz (Peter Sagan & Alban Lakata Trails) and Weissensee (Weissensee & Naggl Trails) are each about 25 km away from our home. With a lot of flow the trails are also a pleasure for hardtail riders.Lienz Weissensee
Even if you drive from us to Sillian by car for about 1 hour... the Stonemantrail is a must for lovers of alpine MTB routes - and also officially signposted.Details
For pedal knights ...
In the beautiful Lesach valley there is often little traffic. If you like it mountainous, you can continue the tour along the Pustertal mountain road.GPS
Although quite steep: our favourite track in nearby Italy: the Lanzenpass - pure loneliness. With Plöckenpass and Nassfeld the altitude meters add up to a great lap.GPS
A great lap with only a longer ascent on the Staller Sattel and a fantastic descent on the Italian side. Apart from that it goes very enjoyably along the Isel and the Drau.GPS
For water lovers ...
Yes, Irschen even has its own open-air swimming pool - only 3 km from Bergh am BERG on the Leppen. The small but quiet swimming pool is suitable not only for families with small children (children's playground, baby paddling pool), but also for swimming friends of all ages. The special feature: all pools are filled with Grander water. And those who like to swim "right" have a wonderful choice with the numerous swimming lakes in our nearby area:
Only 20 km away from us is the swimming pool Greifenburg with its large sunbathing lawn, diving tower, water slide, children's playground and even a high ropes course.
The only natural bathing lake in East Tyrol at approx. 820m above sea level is nearly 500 m long. Situated near Lienz, it is also easily accessible from our house by bicycle or car.
(ca. 23 km).
About 27 km away from us. The 11 km long Weißensee is not only the highest of the large Carinthian bathing lakes (approx. 930m) but in our opinion also the most beautiful. Its clear water has almost drinking water quality.
For pouder and firn enthusiasts
Ski tours away from the front door - what more do you want? And while you have to get up early in most of the touring areas in order to make your first traces, as a ski-tourist you will enjoy peace and solitude in the Kreuzeck group. And when you meet someone on the way, you are happy about a nice talk - at the latest when you stop at the Bergheimat (1.618m), which is also open in winter. The forest road to the Bergheimat is a wonderful ski and toboggan run on snow, which makes a pleasant ascent and above all a fine descent possible, even with less snow. Further up, depending on the snow and avalanche situation, there are many possibilities ranging from delightful slopes in the light pine forest to fantastic steep gullies from Scharnik (2,657m) and Rotwieland (2,555m).
As a state-certified ski tour instructor, I (Peter) like to give our guests tips for worthwhile tours in the area of the Leppner Alm - if there is snow, I am anyway mostly on two boards on the way anyway.
Lonely downhill track at the foot of Scharnik (2.657m) and Rotwieland (2.555m)
