Right in the centre of one of the sunniest regions of the Alps with the most stable weather conditions you can find our airport Lienz-Nikolsdorf (LOKL).
It's located in the valley of the river Drau, just about 7 miles southeast of downtown Lienz. Due to the outstanding thermic conditions starting early during the year it's long been famous among glider pilots. But also for those of you with powered aircraft there is a lot to see around Lienz - like the Lienz Dolomites, the Lakes Area of Carinthia, the Main Ridges of the Alps with majestic peaks and of course the famous 'Tre Cime Di Lavaredo' in the Sexten Dolomites. All those places of interest are just a few minutes away from Lienz - also during a sightseeing flight.
But even beyond flying, there's a lot to do in the Lienz Region: Hiking, rafting, paragliding, golfing, skiing and much more.
