Lienzer Bergbahnen/ Osttirodler Alpine Coaster

Reviewed By Linda W

Great attraction for all ages. This long and exciting coaster is a buzz and safe for all ages. It starts with a ride up the mountain in the cable car, where there is a restaurant and many trails to walk or take the coaster back down into Lienz. It is very reasonably priced and worth a second go.

Hauptplatz Lienz

Reviewed By OliverK746 - Bangkok, Thailand

Lienz is a very beautiful small city and the place in the middle with the old houses is beautiful more. Especially in Summer you can sit in one of the cafe's and enjoy homemade cakes, austrian dishes and drink good Austrian coffees. Nice place to relax

Schloss Bruck - Museum der Stadt Lienz

Reviewed By canadianinriyadh - Canada

It was not what we expected. Personally found the artist to be dark and depressing. No photography is allowed and charged 7.50Euros per person.

Tristachersee

Reviewed By susi e - Sydney, Australia

The hotel on the Tristachersee has superb food and sits right on the shores of the lake. The ambiance in the restaurant is charming and the host really enjoys making special desserts right at your table.
It is not a casual restaurant...rather a smart one for a special occasion. We went there this year for my birthday and enjoyed it very much.

St. Andra (Church of St. Andrew)

Reviewed By AdventureAustria - Lienz, Austria

The church of St Andrew is a must for those who want to find out more about Lienz's history.
The largest and oldest church in Lienz is located very close to the town centre (10 mins by foot) and it's spire can be seen from just about everywhere.
The architectural building, paintings and gold decorations inside the church are wonderful to view even if churches are not your thing.
The church grounds and also very pleasant along with the town cemetery where you can stroll through and gaze at the immaculately kept shrines and gravestones. Towards the back of the cemetery are very large - almost tomb like graves (presumably from the rich and prominent families of Lienz). Nearly all of the gravestones are lit with candles at night making a strange but pleasantly nice and relaxing atmosphere at dusk time. There is also a large memorial for the war victims.
An excellent restaurant, cafe, bar is located just outside of the church which is well worth stopping in after you've strolled through the cemetery and seen the church!

Felbertauern Strasse

Reviewed By Marina A - London, England, United Kingdom

I took the “Felbertauernstrasse” for the first time – went from Salzburg to East Tyrol. I was simply impressed by the beauty of the Mountains, fields, trees and houses next to the road. A scenic drive – will never forget that experience and I’m looking forward to take this road again very soon.
