Lake Achen between the Karwendel and Rofan in Tirol
It is in Pertisau that the largest lake in Tyrol coalesces with mountains, making it an optimum starting point for hikes, mountain tours and cycling tours in Tyrol’s biggest natural park, Karwendel Nature Park, and in the Rofan Mountains.
In the midst of the Tyrol Alps you will come across an extensive 500 km of well-tended and signposted hiking routes, with something to suit every ability level. It is not for nothing that the region has for many years been awarded the ‘Mountain Trails Seal of Approval’ by the state of Tyrol.
An emperor and duke at Lake Achensee
Even emperor Maximilian described Pertisau, set at 940 metres altitude, as one of his preferred hunting grounds – his one-time residence, located directly at Lake Achensee, is home today to Travel Charme Fürstenhaus. The setting continues with its centuries-old history as being a holiday destination today with additional innovations, such as the oldest and probably the most beautiful golf course in Austria.
Duke Sigmund der Münzreiche (Sigmund ‘rich in coins’) had the "Fischerhaus" constructed in 1446 so it was easier to hunt and fish in Pertisau. Today the Fischergut is one of the oldest farmhouses in Pertisau. It is located directly opposite the Fürstenhaus. In the summer months concerts by Eben music group are held there.
Activities on the mountain and at the lake
The main landing stages for Achensee’s boat trips are in Pertisau. Since 1887 the steam boats have been connecting the towns of Achenkirch, Maurach and Pertisau.
Along with an extensive activity programme on the land, such as hiking, walking, mountain biking, Nordic Walking and paragliding, while water sports fans can enjoy getting out on to the lake. Constant winds mean that Lake Achensee is a paradise for sailors, surfers and kitesurfers.
