Welcome to Außervillgraten in East Tyrol

Ausservillgraten is an original holiday resort in the Villgratental, a small side valley of Hochpustertal valley and lies at an altitude of 1286 m above sea level. Together with Innervillgraten the village belongs to the mountaineering villages of the Austrian Alpine Club. Ausservillgraten is the ideal holiday resort for those seeking peace and quiet, yet offers extensive opportunities to enjoy a holiday far away from mass tourism.

Cycling and Biking

The Villgratental valley, surrounded by 50 imposing peaks, is also an insider tip for cyclists. Here you will find bike routes with crisp climbs, impressive mountain views and hearty mountain hut food. The 12 km route from Außervillgraten to Volkzein in the Winkeltal valley is particularly popular with many cyclists. The first 5 kilometres lead along the asphalt Winkeltal valley road to the Reiterstube restaurant. From there you cycle along the 7 km long alpine path past lush meadows, through larch forests to the Volkzeiner hut at the end of the valley. But also the asphalt mountain road to the Thurntaler is a successful challenge for trained cyclists. The 6 km long road meanders with a constant gradient up the mountain to the Thurntaler Rast restaurant, where you can have an excellent meal and drink afterwards.


Ice Skating

In Außervillgraten, however, friends of ice sports also get their money’s worth. From mid-December until well into late winter, there is a natural ice field in the centre of Außervillgraten (opposite House Valgrata), which can be used free of charge. Ice skates, ice hockey sticks and ice sticks can be rented free of charge at the Sportunion clubhouse. In the evening hours the whole ice sports field is illuminated with floodlights and is therefore a great alternative for the evening program during your holidays.
