Holiday information

 

A snow holiday in Pertisau -

ideal for skiers and non-skiers alike
Nestling on the shores of Lake Achensee, whose bright waters never entirely freeze, the Tyrolean village of Pertisau offers scenic cross-country trails and ideal downhill skiing for beginners and families. Small, but with shops and cafés, the village lies at the foot of the Karwendel Mountains, where three valleys meet, enabling winter walkers to explore a variety of lakeside, valley and mountain routes.
The magnificent Wiesenhof is, deservedly, one of our most popular hotels, and earns the most consistently high levels of praise of any Inntravel hotel for the charming hospitality of English-speaking host Hansi Entner and his family. They have worked tirelessly and enthusiastically to create a convivial atmosphere in which families with children of all ages are warmly welcomed and well catered for. Dating from the 18th century, the building has been in the family for generations, gradually evolving into a superb 4-star superior hotel of the highest quality. Despite its size and refined elegance, it remains friendly and relaxed.
 

Our expert says

“The lakeside setting is beautiful, and the easy access to the cross-country skiing and winter walking is a real bonus, but it’s the Romantik Hotel Wiesenhof itself that really makes a holiday to Pertisau – it’s fabulous! If you’re looking for a relaxed winter experience, this is a great choice.”

Winter activities

There’s no fixed itinerary, so take your pick of the activities as the mood takes you. The cross-country skiing is good but, equally, Pertisau makes a good base for non-skiing holidays too.
  • Best for: beginners, improvers & intermediates
    Offering something for everyone, particularly beginners and intermediates, the cross-country ski trails start right behind the hotel and lead through trees and across alpine meadows into the three valleys radiating out from the village. As these are completely traffic-free, you soon get to experience the peace and serenity of your natural surroundings, and there are a number of welcoming chalets where you can stop for refreshments en route. You can also ski along the lake’s shore to the nearby village of Maurach. Pertisau’s trails form part of a wider network incorporating the trails of Achenkirch at the far end of the lake, reached by ski bus. In total there are 201 kilometres of trails, of which 51 kilometres cater for skaters as well as for classic skiers. Many tracks have four lanes. (If you have never tried skating cross-country skiing before but would like to try it, look out for introductory sessions as part of the hotel's weekly activities programme.)

    Trails: 201km to 1200m in Achensee region (105km classic and 51km skating) with 95km around Pertisau
    Cross-country skiing
  • Good choice of routes
    The opportunities for winter walking are fantastic, with a wide choice of specially prepared paths along the shores of the lake, through the surrounding traffic-free valleys, and in the mountains. In total there are 150km of paths in the Achensee region, including 65km around Pertisau.
    Please note that, although the documentation we send you for your holiday includes suggestions as to the most rewarding walks, we do not provide detailed route notes – the designated winter walking routes are well signposted.
  • Best for: beginners, improvers & families
    The downhill skiing is virtually on your doorstep – the lifts are by the ski school 300 metres away, giving you access to five blue and four red runs. For further downhill skiing, take the free ski bus to Achenkirch at the northern end of the lake.

    Pistes: 14km to 1510m in Pertisau (comprises 8 pistes: blue 4, red 4, served by gondola & draglifts), plus a further 34km to 1834m in Achensee region accessed by free ski bus
  • Snowshoeing & more
    To ring the changes, you could visit Pertisau’s Tyrolean Shale Oil Museum – shale oil products (which are only found at Lake Achensee) are used in the spa at the hotel and are also available for use in the hotel bedrooms. Alternatively, enjoy a spot of ice-skating, curling, tobogganing (the hotel has a few which guests can borrow) or snowshoeing. The latter can be enjoyed either independently or with other hotel guests – the Wiesenhof offers a programme of activities each week, including snowshoe walks. Another option is to take a horse-drawn sleigh ride (pay locally) through the nearby villages from the Entner family farm – a wonderful way to appreciate these magnificent surroundings.
    Snowshoeing
  • Special events
    Christmas is celebrated with traditional Austrian gala dinners and festive activities for all the family. At New Year, there is a celebratory dinner, followed by fireworks in the village at midnight.
 

Where you stay

Set on the south-western shore, Pertisau is one of the main villages on Achensee which, at 9km long by 1km wide, is the largest lake in the Austrian Tyrol. Although small, Pertisau offers a good range of facilities, including a post office, a bank, sports and souvenir shops, several restaurants, bars and cafés, plus an interactive museum devoted to Tyrolean mineral oil (Tiroler Steinöl), a natural healing product that is extracted from shale oil in the Karwendel Mountains near the lake. It is worth taking a trip in the Karwendel gondola for the sweeping views over the surrounding area – a perfect way to get your bearings. Pertisau was a favoured holiday spot for Emperor Maximilan I (1490–1519), who built a country residence here, and the village remained the preferred hunting and fishing ground for many Habsburgs until the early 20th century.

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.

Reviews

If you've experienced this holiday first hand, why not write a review?

We are keen for as many customers as possible to review their holiday. To make it easier to do so, we include a specific review section on our post-holiday questionnaire, and this is what we publish here, unedited. Read our full review policy >

 

FAQs

  • If you are travelling over Christmas or New Year, or during school holidays, you should definitely pre-book lessons. After you’ve booked your holiday with us, we’ll send you a link to a list of packages that we can arrange for you in advance.
    Sometimes we can’t make bookings on your behalf. In these cases you should phone or email the ski school well before your holiday to arrange a date and time; do not wait until you are on holiday to make arrangements. 
  • They are two mattresses (each with separate bedding) on one large base. 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.
  • In the Alps, most hotels have a vegetarian menu. Please contact us for specific information about this particular hotel.
  • Living far from the capital ourselves, we know better than most that flying from London can be a bind, so we are very flexible with our travel arrangements. Call or email us, and one of the team will be happy to list the different options available to you, and any price implications.
  • Absolutely! We are experts in tailored rail travel. Making use of sleeper trains or stopovers in cities along the route, we can get you from London to virtually anywhere in mainland Europe. We can even make arrangements to Mallorca, Sicily and Norway with a combination of ferries and rail. Please contact Abi to discuss your plans.
  • Once you’ve decided on your exact itinerary (our travel experts will be happy to offer advice), you need to provide us with your party’s details, either by phone or via our booking form. At this point we also ask you to pay a deposit so that we can secure a room for you immediately on confirming availability with the hotel(s). If it turns out that we can’t secure the accommodation for the holiday you’ve requested, or offer an acceptable alternative, we’ll refund your deposit promptly and in full. After booking your accommodation and other key elements, we'll then book your travel (or you can do so if you’re making your own arrangements) and send you a Booking Confirmation and Invoice.
  • Yes, it’s something we insist on, even for holidays in the UK. The vast majority of holidays go smoothly, but when things go wrong, it can be expensive to put them right. Buying a new pair of walking boots after your suitcase is stolen mightn’t seem so bad, but the bill for being airlifted down from a mountain with a broken leg or flown home while still recovering from an illness or accident can cost tens of thousands of pounds.

    You don’t have to buy our policy (if you live outside Europe you’ll definitely need to make your own arrangements, as the policy is only for UK and EU residents), but you do need to make sure that you’re covered for medical emergencies and repatriation. We also recommend that you are covered for other eventualities, such as cancellation and loss of luggage and passports.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure you are in possession of the correct travel documents, with the correct validity. If you’re a UK citizen, you need a full British passport to travel to Austria, but not a visa (if you are travelling after 31 October 2019, see the Brexit question below for more information). If you are a citizen of another country, you’ll need to check requirements with the national embassy or your own consulate.

    Current information regarding vaccinations and travel health advice can be found through the following NHS link: www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/advice/ You must make sure you have adequate insurance cover for illness, accidents and repatriation (see the insurance question). UK citizens should also obtain a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) by applying at a Post Office or at www.ehic.org.uk. The EHIC allows reciprocal health care but should not be seen as a substitute for travel insurance. EHICs may cease to be valid in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
  • (Austrian) German is the most commonly spoken language. The currency is the Euro. Austrian time is GMT/UTC + 1. It uses Daylight Saving Time, so in summer is on BST + 1.
  • Even in the event of a no-deal Brexit, it’s been confirmed that flights will continue as normal and that you won’t need a visa to go on holiday (the limit on stays is 90 days). What you will need if there’s no deal is a passport that is valid for at least 6 months beyond the date of your arrival (extra months added because you renewed your passport early do not count) and adequate travel insurance to cover you for accidents and illness in case reciprocal health deals are suspended. If you are driving while on holiday, you will probably need an International Driving Permit (plus a Green Card if you are taking your own car to Europe). More information >
  • The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) provides up-to-date, country-by-country travel advice, as well as information on security, local laws, passports and visas for UK citizens.
