Excursion Destinations

Nature, Sights and Culture ...

Are you in the mood to spend an active vacation here in St. Jakob? The Defereggental offers a wealth of interesting towns & villages, sights and excursion destinations. There are true treats in store here for families, explorers, as well as everyone who simply wants to pause to appreciate the “finer things” in life.

Exhibition with a “pine” theme

The traditions of Eastern Tyrol are closely intertwined with one another, something you can experience first-hand at a very special interactive exhibition located in St. Jakob. For the last 16 years, Hohe Tauern National Park has presented at the Handelshaus an hommage to the pine – a tree that can live as long as 1,000 years, provides the medium for wood carvers throughout the region, and whose cones can even be used to produce liqueurs.

Nature Park House Matrei

A holiday in Defereggental is always interwoven with the fascination of Hohe Tauern National Park. If you wish to learn, experience and marvel at even more, you should definitely pay a visit to National Park House Matrei, which offers a fascinating world of discovery on two floors. This includes an exhibition of historical finds, a big-screen video projection of our glacial world, instructive films, and so much more.

The Castles and Palaces of Eastern Tyrol

There are few locations where the storied history of Tyrol can be experienced as vividly as it can at the region’s castles and palaces. Here, amazing architecture meets fairy-tale impressions. We highly recommend a trip to Schloss Weissenstein, Schloss Bruck, Heinfels Castle or to the ruins of Rabenstein Castle. Oftentimes, these old buildings are quite exposed and tower high above the valley, allowing us all to enjoy unobstructed views seemingly plucked from the pages of a picture book.
