Lienz where AdventureAustria are based is the main town of East Tyrol and operates as an all year destination, unlike a purpose built ski resort. In fact, the main season here is during the summer. We often get asked ‘how big is Lienz?’ or ‘how many restaurants and bars are there in Lienz?’ Below is a quick glance to get an idea of what you can expect. A large number of events, concerts and festivals take place in Lienz throughout the year and especially in the summer months. Lienz has a large number of shops, bars, restaurants, cafes, discos etc to keep most guests happy. Virtually all are reachable by walking and the rest are just a short taxi ride away.
It has to be said that Lienz would be fairly low key for guests who have been to the more known destinations such as Ischgl, St Anton, Lech etc. However, those preferring less ‘nightlife’ and more continental style bars and pubs mixing with the locals, would definitely find the atmosphere in Lienz very appealing. Families also find Lienz very appealing with plenty to do for the kids and parents.
We provide all our guests on arrival with a map detailing recommended restaurants and bars explaining types of food, opening hours etc
We can also arrange special evenings for groups such as ice curling with mulled wine in the winter or barbeques in summer. Please contact us for more details.
