Holiday information

 

Scenic Pertisau

On the western shores of glittering Lake Achensee, sheltered by the imposing Karwendel Mountains, is the typically Tyrolean village of Pertisau. This is perfect walking country, with inviting paths around the lake, through the surrounding valleys and along the panoramic ridges high above.
To enjoy these, though, you must first tear yourself away from your excellent hotel. The Romantik Hotel Wiesenhof has a state-of-the-art spa, large pool and excellent restaurant, where, in addition to a generous breakfast and delicious dinner, a light lunch and afternoon cake are included every day.
 

Itinerary

  • Mösern to Pertisau: 2-2.5hrs by taxi & rail
    Today you will be transferred to Seefeld station to catch the train to Jenbach, from where you will be collected and taken to your hotel in Pertisau.

    You may decide to spend the rest of the day exploring the village and enjoying the hotel’s restful atmosphere, outstanding spa facilities and panoramic view over Lake Achensee.
  • Choice of walks from Pertisau: 8km to 18km
    With a lake, mountains and the entrance to two lush green valleys on its doorstep, Pertisau is a walker’s paradise. We provide you with route notes for seven different walks – all of them accessible to walkers of average fitness and most offering the option to shorten or extend routes.
     
    Along the Lake to Achenkirch: 11km, 2.5hrs
    Enjoy fabulous views across the lake as you walk along the western shores of Achensee to the villages of Gaisalm and Achenkirch at the head of the lake, before returning by boat from Achenkirch.
     
    To the top of Rofanspitze: 10.5km, 4hrs
    Starting and ending by cable car, this rewarding, out-and-back walk takes you through high Alpine meadows to reach the peak of Rofanspitze, from where there are some superb views across the peaks which surround the lake.
     
    The Dalfaz Waterfall: 7.5km, 3hrs
    Starting from the lakeside on the opposite shore from Pertisau, the path climbs steadily up through woodland to reach the dramatic Dalfaz Waterfall. Beyond here, the route continues across Alpine pastures to the Dalfazalm, where you can stop for lunch, before contouring to the top of the cable car and returning to Maurach, from where you catch the bus back to Pertisau.
     
    St Notburga’s Way: 10km, 4hrs
    Saint Notburga is the Austrian patron saint of servants and peasants and is buried in Eben. Enjoy a circular walk that takes in the beautiful St Notburga's church before visiting an interesting museum dedicated to the saint.
     
    Through Steinernes Tor: 14km, 4hrs
    This is a delightful and varied linear walk offering you four very different aspects of the surrounding mountains. From the top of the Rofan cable car, the path ascends steeply through woodland, passing the dramatic rock face at Steinernes Tor. From here you descend on a steep woodland trail to a waterfall and then follow the mountain stream down to the lakeside. Return to Pertisau by boat. 
     
    Into the Karwendel Mountains: 11.5km, 4hrs
    Using the Karwendel cable car from Pertisau, this linear walk heads through pastures, then descends through forest to Maurach.
     
    Along the Karwendel Valley: 18km, 5hrs
    From the door of the hotel enjoy a long, but leisurely, linear walk through the meadows and woodland of the pretty Karwendel Valley. Early summer is the perfect time to see the wildflowers and for a spot of bird-watching. As this is a linear walk, you can turn back at any point, though it is well worth going all the way to Gamailalm for refreshments before returning.
  • Lake cruises, cog railways & more

    Nordic walking
    For a change from regular hiking, local guide Christoph Leithner can arrange an introduction to Nordic walking (pay locally). This has become very popular in the Alps in recent years due to its great health benefits, and is best described as cross-country skiing without the skis – or the snow!
     
    Achensee lake cruises
    Boat trips have been operating on the lake since 1887. Use them to enjoy walks along the shores, hopping back onboard to sail back to the village.
     
    Cog railway
    Take a ride on the steam cog railway, which dates from 1889, from the end of the lake down to the town of Jenbach and back again.
     
    Air Rofan Skyflier
    For those seeking a real thrill, take the Rofanseilbahn cable-car to the top of the Gschöllkopf and 'fly' down the mountain at 85km/h!
 

Accommodation

Please note: most beds in Austrian hotels are normally one large base with two mattresses/duvets. We refer to these as 'Austrian Twins' and they are locally regarded to serve requests for both double and twin bedded rooms. Separate twin beds or traditional double beds with one large mattress are rare and cannot be guaranteed.
