Nussdorf-Debant in the Lienz Dolomites captivates visitors with its proximity to the archaeological excavation site of Aguntum, but not only.
Altitude: 640 metres asl
The holiday village Nussdorf-Debant is situated only 4 km from Lienz and comprises the localities of Nussdorf, Nußdorfer Berg and Debant. In its close proximity lies the open-air museum Aguntum, an archaeological excavation site. For all of you particularly interested in culture and history, we recommend the combi-card for Aguntum and Bruck Castle in Lienz.
If you prefer to spend your time in the middle of nature, the sunny Drau valley, the Hohe Tauern National Park and the Lienz Dolomites offer a wide range of hiking and cycling tours. Particularly popular with cyclists is the 28 km long “Debanttalrunde“ from Lienz to Nussdorf and the Faschingsalm alpine pasture, which is of medium difficulty. If you prefer hiking, we recommend to you the the adventure trail “Nussdorfer Berg”, which starts at the Toni Egger-Park and takes you across steps, forest roads and meadows to the “Bergermoar”, up to the highest farms of the Nussdorf mountain.
From a cultural point of view, very worth to be visited is the St. Helena church built about 500 years ago in Gothic style with its three altars and its organ protected as a historic monument.
In the cold winter months, usually a mantle of snow is covering the village, providing a great landscape for romantic winter walks, ski mountaineering or cross-country skiing along the 15 km long run. Or maybe you prefer a toboggan ride on the “Debantweg“, overcoming a difference in altitude of about 750 metres? Nussdorf-Debant offers nearly everything but boredom!
