Summer vacation in Sankt Jakob in Defereggen

Three places - St. Jakob, St. Veit and Hopfgarten - one valley. And that at the foot of glistening three-thousand-meter peaks.

The Defereggen valley can definitely be called remote. And how. But it is precisely this remoteness that makes our beautiful valley so attractive for those truly seeking relaxation. Situated in the middle of the Hohe Tauern National Park, surrounded by majestic mountain peaks, Defereggen valley is exactly what one would have called an ideal summer resort 50 years ago. The fact that St. Jakob is the oldest settlement in East Tyrol is already impressive proof of the age of this ancient, rural cultural area. A summer vacation in the Defereggen valley is extraordinarily popular with families and nature lovers, who get their money's worth here.
