Eastern Tyrol is enclosed between the peaks of the Upper Tauern in the North and the Dolomites in the South. This is the natural frame to the Hotel Schöne Aussicht, an ideal base for a biking holiday. Several tours, with many turns, terrific panoramic roads like the Felbertauernstraße or the Pustertaler Höhenstraße as well as the close Dolomite passes will make your biker heart beat out of excitement.
The favourable position and microclimate vouch for fortunate weather conditions. In the Hochpustertal region there are numerous take-off sites, so that you can practice this exciting sport in virtually any wind conditions. www.bluesky.at
If you are curious about the local animal species, we recommend to take a one-and-a-half hour walk here, with astounding views over the Lienz Dolomites. Accessible via the Hochpustertaler Strasse.
