A jewel box in East Tyrol
Among the lofty Lienz Dolomites Mountain Range and the mighty Carnic Alps and at 1,450 metres is the quiet and picturesque community of Obertilliach. The high elevation of Obertilliach, a popular Nordic paradise, allows for plenty of snow and each winter the world’s best biathlon skiers train here at the Nordic Ski & Biathlon Center. Enjoy a stunning network of set track and wide skate lanes on an immaculately groomed and waymarked trail system that is linked to the 60-kilometre Grenzland XC Ski Track. Obertilliach also has a well-earned reputation as a great venue for downhill skiers and riders: The wide, rolling trails at Golzentipp Ski resort are ideal for those just getting their snow legs. Must-sees include the nearby Pilgrimage Church of Maria Luggau, that is located across the border at the Austrian province of Carinthia.
