How to reach the Alpinhotel Jesacherhof
The Alpinhotel Jesacherhof is located in Defereggental, in the tranquil village of St. Jakob in Defereggental, right next to the Brunnalm lifts. Our local mountain, the Hochgall, rises majestically into the sky. Both in summer and winter, the mountains offer fantastic adventures. Hiking trails, cross-country skiing tracks, and more start right outside the hotel door – here, you are in the middle of nature.
To the north of the Jesacherhof, the expansive Hohe Tauern National Park unfolds, showcasing its breathtaking glacier fields, lush green meadows, and dense forests, which are home to creatures like ibexes, marmots, golden eagles, bearded vultures, chamois, and the tiny winter goldcrest. To the south lie the rugged rock massifs of the Lienz Dolomites – a true paradise for action lovers, with countless opportunities for hiking, biking, climbing, and skiing. And just over the border in South Tyrol, another popular excursion destination awaits you: Lake Anterselva/Antholz.
