The region - holidays in St. Jakob

The Defereggen valley in East Tyrol is a natural gem in the Hohe Tauern National Park and with its three villages Hopfgarten, St. Veit and St. Jakob, the area counts to one of the most beautiful and popular holiday destinations in Austria.

St. Jakob with its particularly favourable climate is situated in one of the most beautiful alpine valleys of Tyrol. In the summer, the village with its 50 "three thousanders", presents itself as a hiking paradise in the midst of the Hohe Tauern National Park. For winter sports enthusiasts a wide and varied range of activities is available:

Whether in the snow-secure ski resort of Brunnalm, on the perfectly groomed cross-country trails, tobogganing, ice skating, and winter hiking - St. Jakob offers something for every taste.
