The pretty village of Dölsach in East Tirol lies just a few kilometres from the region's largest town, Lienz. It is located within the borders of the Hohe Tauern National Park and is an excellent place to explore the mountains or simply relax.
Dölsach takes its name from the word "dolice" meaning "small valley". However, with a population of more than 2,200 it is not that small by East Tirolean standards and has a lot to offer visitors. The main attraction is without a doubt Aguntum, an archaeological museum on the site which used to be home to the only Roman town in Tirol. Those interested in the history of the region can learn all about how people would have lived in Aguntum and the trade in copper, wood and crystal. The Farmers' Days are also a regular highlight giving both locals and visitors alike the chance to try some of the produce made by local farmers throughout the year.
The village of Dölsach lies within the borders of the Hohe Tauern National Park. Activities include hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking in summer as well as skiing and snowboarding in winter.
