Winter hiking at Lake Achensee
There is something magical about hiking in winter. Hear the snow crunch under your boots as you discover the stunning white landscape, your cheeks going rosy from the clear cold air. Lake Achensee is the perfect destination for nature loving explorers.
Hiking is a great way to immerse yourself in the spectacular landscape. The region boasts over 150 kilometres of cleared winter hiking trails: wander along the lakeshore, stroll into the Karwendel valleys, or hike up the mountains. In the Karwendel valleys, the Pletzachalm and the Alpengasthaus Falzturn are popular excursions just an hour from Pertisau. A walk to the Gramaialm takes at least two hours. After an invigorating walk, treat yourself to Tirolean delicacies in the toasty comfort of the cosy mountain huts. The paths along the lakeshore from Pertisau to Maurach and in Achenkirch provide a beautiful setting for leisurely winter strolls. If you are looking for a storybook winter idyll, put Steinberg am Rofan on your must-visit list. The romantic village boasts a one-hour circular walking trail which is well lit after dark.
