The Timmeltal is a northern side valley of the Virgental in East Tyrol . It belongs to the Venediger group , which forms a significant part of the main Alpine ridge of the Hohe Tauern .

The northern end is formed by the Wallhorntörl (3,045 m), via which a transition to the Defreggerhaus below the Großvenediger is possible.

The Timmelbach flows through the Timmeltal and falls over two steep steps: at a height of almost 2,500 m below the Eisseehütte and at the exit of the valley again down to Prägraten .

The Timmeltal is a popular destination for hikers during the summer months due to the occurrence of some rare alpine flora and is touched by a number of high-altitude tours in the Venediger group .
