Away from traffic, on a contrasting sunny plateau lies the picturesque village of Westendorf (800m). In 1998 Westendorf was voted as the most beautiful village in Europe!
A beautiful church, a picture book village centre, a lively farming economy, intact natural landscape and opportunities for sport and relaxation were the basic requirements for participation in the contest.
The "Entente" Committee stated that Westendorf is a village that is proud of its tradition's, values its precious natural landscape and yet is open to the challenges of the future.
These values still have the same meaning today as then, and Westendorf does indeed strive to remain true to these principles.
Only 300m from the center there is the "Alpenrosenbahn" to the Talkaser (1.770m).
Not only can you enjoy mountain biking, hiking, tracking, nordic walking, paragliding, tennis and cycling but why not just take a relaxing stroll along one of Westendorf's many kilometres of walking paths in pure beauty, taking you past traditional old farm houses where the fields are so green, up to mountain pastures and huts and between the shady forests you will find the ideal resting place.
To cut it short Westendorf offers ideal landscape pictures that are becoming a rarity.
The impressive mountain world up to 2400m along with the wonderful "Windau Valley", which is a jewel of nature, is a completely endless walkers paradise.
