Aguntum was the only known Roman settlement in Tyrol. Its importance is mentioned in the 1st century A.D. The significance of Aguntum must have been due to its geographical position close to important trade routes. Excavations show that Aguntum certainly was a prospering trade- and businesscentre in Roman times. In 2000 only a small fraction of the original Roman town has yet been archeologically examined. Big thermal baths and other public buildings had been excavated, the craftsman quarter etc. An observation tower has been erected in the area to make it easier to get an overall picture of the site.

In the comfortable surroundings of Hotel Traube this elegant restaurant has much to offer. I was told that this was the best restaurant in town and I believe it!
Favorite Dish: Tyrolean favourites where the emphasis is on lamb or venison with elegant salads and braised vegetables. A delicacy of the house: I remember seeing on the menu, but not tasting, Seeteufel (sea devil), a frogfish served with risotto and tomatoes. Recommended by the waiter.

If you want to head to Lienz from Vienna and choose to go by train, you will often have to change along the way. Predominantly it is necessary to change in Villach and a change can add an extra hour onto your travelling time. There is however one direct train every day - leaving Vienna at 06:57 which gets you into Lienz 6 hours later - i.e. in time for lunch. Of course there are on-board catering options in case you want to eat before you get there. Reservations are recommended - especially if you are heading there on weekends, when the train service is popular with people fleeing Vienna for the south of Austria.
