Almliesl - Your holiday destination, a well-kept secret

At last, a really different holiday. Not a package holiday in a hotel complex with crowded beaches – an Almliesl holiday is a well-kept secret amongst the everyday holiday offers. Fresh, clear mountain air, meadows, forests, herbs and incomparable landscapes - this is the holiday destination that nature lovers, big and small, can expect. Small but beautiful, the central Alpine region offers various sporting, adventure, and nature experiences. A refreshing jump into the cool water of the numerous mountain and swimming lakes, an adrenaline fuelled single biking trail or a leisurely hike to the local herdsman, who is awaiting you with home-made cheese.

That is what you can expect in an Almliesl holiday region!
