Our home, our playground - the Lienz Dolomites! We'll tell you which hikes you shouldn't miss here:
Insider tip from Thomas Winkler
The Lienz Dolomites right outside our door offer a paradise for hikers, bikers, and climbers. One of my favorite places is the Karlsbader Hütte and the Laserzsee right next to it. From the Dolomitenhof, there are many paths that lead up into the mountains. I am a big fan of biking and hiking. Straight from the breakfast table, I can set out on the Dolomitenstraße and head up to the Dolomitenhütte, which welcomes us with breathtaking panoramas and a spectacular view of the mountains.

One of the famous huts in the region in a breathtaking location. Route description: you can reach the Karlsbader Hütte at an elevation of 2,260 m from the parking lot of the Dolomitenhütte in 2 hrs. via a comfortable hiking path. Would you like something more challenging? Then you can take the Rudl Eller Weg trail, which requires surefootedness. After numerous bends, you will reach the Hohe Törl (2,098 m). This is located directly under the imposing walls of the Dolomites, which are popular among climbers.
Time-on-trail: 2 hrs.
An easy hike along the high, exposed ridge of the Hochstein with a sensational panoramic view. Drive via Leisach to Bannberg and continue along a toll road to the Hochsteinhütte parking area. From here, hike along a wide alpine path ca. 10 minutes to the Hochsteinhütte and over a flat and later slightly uphill pasture area on path no. 9 to the summit of the Böses Weibele at an elevation of 2,521 m. A stop for refreshments at the Hochsteinhütte is a rewarding experience. The service is excellent, and the view is breathtaking.
Time-on-trail: 2 hrs.
Route description: take the Lienzer Bergbahn lift on the Hochstein (section 2) to the Sternalm, then continue along the ruggedly romantic Märchensteig to the Hochsteinhütte. Awaiting you here are fantastic, regional specialties. From here, you can head to the summit of the Böses Weibele at an elevation of 2,521 m, which will take you around 2 hrs. – for all those for whom the hike to the Hochsteinhütte was not enough.
Time-on-trail: ca. 3.5 hrs.
Leave your car in Amlach at Gasthof Waldschenke or drive from Leisach on a narrow mountain road to the Klammbrückl parking area. A steep ascent via the Goggsteig will bring you to a gorge, which is a stunning natural spectacle with its roaring water. From here, it is around 2.5 hrs. to the rustic Kerschbaumer Alm. The host, Beate, welcomes you here with East Tyrolean delicacies.
