Altitude: 982 metres a.s.l.
Abfaltersbach, once called “Affoltrupach“, lies in the Upper Pustertal Valley in the district of Lienz. This idyllic holiday village at the shores of the Drau river enchants with beautiful decorative farmhouses, its very quiet position in the middle of nature as well as with its warm hospitality and traditional life.
For those of you who wish to exercise in their holidays, Abfaltersbach offers a wide range of walking and hiking paths in the surroundings of the Hochpustertal valley as well as many cycling tours, like for example the Drau cycle trail, which runs from Maribor in Slovenia to South Tyrol (Italy). After an exciting active day you can relax in a larch bathtub of the Aigner Bad, the historical Tyrolean framer's bath first mentioned in 1772, whose positive effects on body and soul have been scientifically proven. Afterwards you can enjoy some tasty dishes at the neighbouring tavern.
In winter Abfaltersbach offers a lot of fun for skiers and snowboarders on the most famous skiing mountain of the Upper Pustertal Valley, Mount Thurntaler. It boasts 45 km of perfectly groomed ski slopes and its mountain station lies at 2,400 metres a.s.l. Also the Sillian ski region is very easily reachable with a shuttle service. Cross-country skiers can enjoy the beautiful track along the Drau river, while children can have a lot of fun on the ice rink in the village.
To those of you who are particularly interested in culture and history, we recommend to visit the Lourdes Chapel as well as the Chapel of Holy Bartholomew in the hamlet of Einöd.
