at Lake Achensee
Home at the probably most beautiful lake in Tyrol
We couldnâ€™t imagine a more beautiful place than this for our Wagnerhof hotel: Pertisau is a village at the head of the valley and lies encircled between mountain, lake and forest. A dreamy place where nothing spoils the idyll, above all no transit traffic. The best way to enjoy the seasons here is with your senses awake. Outdoor. In the clean air. In the middle of nature where the birds twitter and the wind tells stories. Many guests do not need there car in their holidays - after all almost everything is easily reachable without.
Tyrolâ€™s pearl - Lake Achensee
Because we also want to tell a little bit about history: Lake Achensee was formed in the last ice age about 20,000 years ago and is the result of a terminal moraine. Its tongue-like form still gives evidence of this today. There is no visible glacier left today but instead crystal clear water that you can even drink.
Shhh… our favourite places and trails
In the morning we get drawn to the lake promenade towards the Gaisalm. Sporty in our running shoes or leisurely in a sauntering walk. In the afternoon, the old Achensee road is a dream: no car traffic, much sun, beautiful bays for swimming. Right in Pertisau there are several jetties from which you can dive into the water. Families especially like the lido on summer days which is also a starting point for stand-up-paddling. To us, a personal favourite spot is the lonely jetty towards the Gaisalm. And the upper Seeberg trail which we almost consider an insider tip – don’t tell!
Wonderful views of Lake Achensee
Impressive and easy to reach: This is the Feilkopf, the balcony of Pertisau with a heartwarming view of Lake Achensee. Early bird? Then the sunrise watched from up there is a highlight. Alternatively, you can of course also take the sunset. Those who want to go high up aim for one of the summits. Such as the Bärenkopf, the Seebergspitze or the Mondscheinspitze (black route). Watched from up there the houses, roads and boats look like a miniature playground – a magical feeling, high above everyday life.
In winter, cross-country skiers will experience the highest feelings.
Right behind the hotel they can step into the first track - 210 kilometres of cross-country ski trails meander around the lake. Or winter hiking - a dream in white. This way we will walk over the white meadows instead of the grey sidewalks. And what about ski tours? They can go to the Karwendel and Rofan mountains. Entirely alone, surrounded by the quietude of the wintery mountain world, you will climb up with your skis and discover places which you can normally only see in summer. Ski tours will give you a completely different view of the winter world at Lake Achensee. We ourselves can recommend our local mountain, the ZwÃ¶lferkopf. A must-eat on top of the mastered tour: a fluffy yeast dumpling with melted butter, poppyseeds and sugar in the hut. A little dream.
If you need more personal tips for tours, just ask us at the Wagnerhof!
We hope that we could make you more familiar with Pertisau, Lake Achensee and the mountains. Then there will simply be no way around to come here yourself and experience the magic yourself. We look forward to hearing from you.
