Sillian (1103 m) is the centre of the East Tyrolean “Hochpustertal”.
Sillian lies between the famous South Tyrolean Dolomites and the Lienzer Dolomites. Sillian is the largest place between Lienz and Bruneck.
The ancient square is interesting as it features a pillary, which was mostly used to punish adulterous women.
The weather in Sillian is extremely changeable due to its location, and it can quickly change from warm and balmy to sub-zero.
There are 1200 guest beds of all categories available, as for example the Bergland in the center of Sillian.
