It is no wonder that visitors have been coming to Lake Achensee for decades – with its glittering waters and striking mountain backdrop, the scenery is magnificent. Indeed, a couple of days in the typically Tyrolean village of Pertisau is sure to leave you feeling fully rested and invigorated – not only can you enjoy the fresh mountain air on our scenic walks, but you can also indulge yourself in the Hotel Wiesenhof's state-of-the-art spa. The icing on the cake is that all this is under an hour's drive from the airport, making Pertisau ideal for a short break.
Nestling on the western shores of Lake Achensee, Pertisau guards the entrance to two valleys leading into the Karwendel Mountains which frame this Tyrolean jewel. This is perfect walking country, where inviting paths lead along the water's edge, through the valleys and along panoramic ridges in the mountains high above, thus giving you different perspectives of the lake. We offer a wide choice of walks, including full-day hikes and shorter routes which allow plenty of time for a leisurely picnic at a viewpoint admiring the grandeur of the scenery.
