Lovely Pertisau on the western shore of Lake Achensee offers a harmonious blend of heartfelt hospitality and unparalleled nature experience.

Tradition combines with comfort and modern conveniences. Located on the shores of Tirol's largest lake and surrounded by mighty mountains, Pertisau makes a fine base for walking and hiking in the Alpenpark Karwendel nature park. The Karwendel Bergbahn gondola is the effortless way up the mountain, and those who prefer some more activity and challenge are offered numerous trails and routes for walking and mountain biking.

Emperor Maximilian loved to go hunting in Pertisau. Members of the aristocracy and artists found their inspiration here. Walking towards the charming village center or along the lakeshore you will come across Austria's first golf course, which is probably the ...

... most beautiful of its kind in Tirol.

With its size of 719 hectares, Lake Achensee is Tirol's largest lake. Its crystal-clear water has drinking quality.

The Achensee boats stop at Pertisau; since 1887, the steam boats connect Achenkirch, Maurach, and Pertisau. The colorful sails of surfers and sailing boats create a special atmosphere, and there are many other possibilities for sports enthusiasts: fishing, tennis, running, and Nordic Walking are all included in the "activity program" of this marvelous holiday village.

There are numerous hotels with spa facilities all along the lake, which is largely due to the fact that the region is home to a shale oil processing business and a related museum and shop ("Steinöl Vitalberg"). Tirolean shale oil is said to have healing properties and is used in beauty and care products.

Due to its perfect wind conditions, sailors, surfers and kite surfers consider it the ideal spot for their sport. On hot summer days, the numerous beaches around Lake Achensee invite you to take a plunge in the cool water.
