Lienz

Lienz

The Dolomites rise like an amphitheatre around Lienz, the capital of the District of East Tirol. Famous for long hours of sunshine, the revitalized downtown of Lienz is full of coloured townhouses, colourful floral displays and friendly shops that satisfy every interest. It is the perfect place for an afternoon stroll or leisurely enjoyment of a refreshment at any one of several distinguished cafes and restaurants. Graceful historic buildings line the streets, including Liebburg Castle on Lienz Main Square, Antonius Chapel, the Franciscan Monastery and the former hospital with St. Joseph’s Church. Saint Mary’s Column provides the backdrop for lovely Johannes Square. Legacy is best explored at medieval Bruck Castle, the landmark of Lienz and a beautiful building filled with local history.
