General Information

The name Lesachtal originates from Slavic settlers with the word “Lesach” translating to forest. The Lesachtal part of the valley extends along the Gail river between Maria Luggau and Kötschach-Mauthen. This region is a prime example of tourism off the beaten track with traditional festivals, garments and friendly locals making it an experience not to miss. The valley is also well known for the catholic pilgrimage town of Maria Luggau with its historical church and monestry.
