The assets of the largest lake in Tirol and the unique mountain world unite in Pertisau. Therefore it's one of the best starting points for hikes in winter and an access point to the cross-country trails in Tirol's largest nature park - Alpenpark Karwendel. The Karwendel Bergbahn lift takes skiers and sun worshippers up the mountain to the ski area Zwölferkopf where snow is guaranteed. The area boasts special offers for families and late sleepers.
Cross-country skiers are delighted by the unique nature and by the snow-covered trails which allow them to glide through the winter wonderland. Snow-making facilties are near the trails so it doesn't matter when Mother Hulda takes a ...
... day off.
If you stroll around the snow-covered village you will find quite a few links to the past, e. g. old hotels which tell many stories about past times.
That there are so many wellness hotel situated in Pertisau is maybe due to a special product only available at lake Achensee - the Tirolean mineral oil (Tiroler Steinöl). It's a healing natural product, which is extracted from oil shale in the Karwendelgebirge mountain range near lake Achensee. The company Steinöl Vitalberg has founded a special museum dedicated to this oil in Pertisau.
