Lienz in East Tyrol, where AdventureAustria is based, has a surprisingly large amount of sights, attractions and things to do for such a small town.  Much of this revolves around outdoor and active pastimes as well as relaxation and taking in the amazing views in the surrounding mountains.

Lienz makes for a very central location when considering day trips to explore such fantastic places as Venice, Salzburg, the Italian Dolomite Mountains, Kitzbühel, the Hohe Tauern National Park, the Grossglockner and the beautiful lakes in Carinthia.  It is often surprising to guests that the Italian, Slovenian and Croatian coastlines can be reached in just over 2 hours from our base in Lienz.

On the list below are our recommendations for things to do during your holiday along with day trip ideas, attractions and sights in Lienz.
