Altitude: 1,402 - 1,640 metres a.s.l.
The municipality of Innervillgraten at the end of the homonymous valley comprises, among others, the beautiful hamlet and pilgrimage site Kalkstein on 1,604 metres. Innervillgraten was for the first time mentioned in the year 788 AD as “Alpe Valgrata”. Today, the village is famous for its authentic atmosphere, far away from stress and noise, with familiar accommodations and no signs of mass tourism.
The surroundings of Innervillgraten boast a wide network of exciting walking and hiking trails, which will lead you to some beautiful alpine pastures and high peaks, offering spectacular views to the East and South Tyrolean mountain panorama. Some hiking trails will even lead you over the border to South Tyrol in Italy, for example to the idyllic Val Casies valley.
However, if you prefer to make a mountain bike tour, we recommend you the 25 km long mountain bike trail leading to the Berglet farmhouses on 1,700 m. Moreover, Innervillgraten is a good starting point for motorbike tours on the Grossglockner high alpine road or through the Lesachtal valley. In winter, a shuttle will take you to the ski region Hochpustertal near the village of Sillian, which is only 10 km away.
On a day of rest we recommend you to visit the “Zacheler Stadl“, a very interesting museum in the centre of Innervillgraten exhibiting old farmers working tools.
