Winter activities

There’s no fixed itinerary, so take your pick of the activities as the mood takes you.
  • 65km around Pertisau; 150km in the Achensee region
    With a lake, mountains and two picturesque valleys on its doorstep, Pertisau is a winter walker’s paradise. Several trails begin in the village itself, with further options accessible by public transport (use your visitor’s card for free local bus travel and discounted cable car tickets).

    All trails are well signed, and the snow specially flattened to facilitate walking. In the detailed documentation we provide, we give an overview of our favourite options, including the following two routes:

    Along the Falzthurn Valley: 14km
    This leisurely route starts from the hotel door and leads to the Gramaialm mountain inn, which enjoys a superb setting amid the Karwendel Alpine Park nature reserve. We highly recommend pausing here for refreshments before making your way back to the village.

    The Panoramaweg: 9km
    This linear route certainly lives up to its name – it affords fine lake views as it ascends to a height of 1,000 metres, before crossing snow-covered woodland and dropping down to the lakeside. Return to Pertisau by bus.

  • 201km of trails in the Achensee region; best suited to beginners & intermediates
    Access to Pertisau’s cross-country trails couldn’t be easier – they start right behind the hotel and lead across snowy meadows and through the trees to reach the valleys that radiate out from the village. These trails form part of a wider local network, across which travel is free of charge with your visitor’s card. This card also includes access to the trails themselves; view the regional trail map here.

    The terrain close to the lake is home to gentle, undulating trails; for more of a challenge, take one of the routes into the surrounding valleys. Here are two of our favourite options:

    Panorama trail from Pertisau to Maurach: 3.5km
    This lovely trail begins in the meadow behind the hotel and, as its name suggests, follows a scenic route alongside the lake to reach the neighbouring village of Maurach. There is the option to return via the same route; alternatively make use of the regular local bus service.

    Along the Falzhurn Valley: 14km
    Follow the river through the Falzhurn Valley on this pleasant, undulating route. If you choose to complete the full, circular trail – by skiing out along one side of the valley and back along the other – be sure to break for refreshments at the Gramaialm mountain inn, situated at the head of the valley. If you would prefer a shorter day, simply turn back whenever you’re ready to return to the hotel.
    Trails lead from the heart of the village
  • Snowshoeing, horse-drawn sleigh rides & more
    There are many other ways to enjoy the snow – a whole host of winter activities are available locally, with the hotel itself offering a varied programme.

    Horse-drawn sleigh rides
    A particularly beautiful way to view Pertisau’s magnificent wintry scenery is by horse-drawn sleigh. Not only does this relaxing experience give you time to appreciate the finer detail of your surroundings, it’s also an excellent opportunity to find out more about the area – your host, Alexandra Entner, is a keen rider and will gladly share her love and knowledge of the Karwendel Valleys with you.

    Snowshoeing
    This easy-to-learn activity is perfect for anyone looking to escape the beaten track. Once you’ve mastered the basics – essentially, once you have adjusted to wearing the broad shoes – you have complete freedom to explore, choosing whether to remain on the prepared trails or to make use of the snowshoes’ firm grip and head ‘off-piste’. If you would prefer to hike in a group, the Wiesenhof offers several guided excursions each week, as does the local ski school.

    Downhill skiing
    If you’ve always wanted to give downhill skiing a try, Pertisau is a great place to do it. For one thing, the pistes are virtually on your doorstep – the ski lifts are just 300 metres from the hotel – and they are also ideally suited to beginners and families. The 14 kilometres of pistes in the village are complemented by a further 34 kilometres in the wider Achensee region (accessible by free ski bus).

    Tobogganing
    It’s hard to beat the thrill of whizzing down the mountainside on a toboggan, and Pertisau’s illuminated 1.5-kilometre run can be enjoyed at any time of day. The run can be reached on foot or by an hourly tractor transfer, and has an adjoining mountain inn offering regional cooking and warming drinks.

  • Impressive views & interactive museums

    Karwendel Gondola
    We highly recommend taking a trip in the local Karwendel gondola – passengers are transported up to the Zwölferkopf, from where they can soak in the sweeping views over the lake, village and surrounding mountains. The Karwendel Alpine Inn is located here, too, and is renowned for its homemade Kaiserschmarrn, a popular Austrian dessert that owes its intriguing name (‘Emperor’s Mess’) to Franz Josef I, an Austro-Hungarian emperor who is said to have been particularly fond of this sweet, shredded pancake.

    Tiroler Steinöl
    In addition to providing the village’s dramatic backdrop, the Karwendel Mountains are also the source of Pertisau’s ‘elixir’. This comes in the form of Tyrolean shale oil (Tiroler Steinöl), which has been mined from the mountains since 1902 and is unique to Lake Achensee. Products made from the oil are known for their natural healing properties and are used in the hotel spa and available in the hotel bathrooms. To learn more about the history of shale oil mining, and the health benefits of the products, visit the village’s interactive museum, housed in an impressive glass building whose pyramidal shape is intended to symbolise the Karwendel Mountains.

  • An ideal family destination
    Despite being a 4-star superior hotel, the Wiesenhof is extremely child-friendly. The bedrooms are large, with space for additional beds, and there are also several dedicated family rooms. The 25-metre indoor pool – the largest hotel pool in the region – is much-loved by children of all ages, as is the basement playroom, which is equipped with everything from Lego to an adventure castle and is only a few steps from the lounge/bar area, meaning parents can relax upstairs while their children play safely below. The hotel also excels when it comes to mealtimes – the breakfasts are extensive and varied, with an equally wide choice available in the evenings.

    If you can persuade the children to leave the pool, Pertisau is an excellent place to learn how to downhill and cross-country ski. The ski school is situated just 300 metres from the hotel, and offers children’s lessons to all those aged between 3-12 years. The experienced instructors make the lessons fun by centring these around Bobo the penguin, the school’s playful mascot.

Where you stay

Set on the south-western shore, Pertisau (altitude: 952m) 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 and a number of bars and cafés. Pertisau was a favoured holiday spot for Emperor Maximillian 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.

FAQs

  • We sincerely hope that your holiday experience will be as enjoyable as it would have been before the pandemic – activities such as winter walking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are ideal in these times of social distancing, and we’re not operating holidays if the key highlights can no longer be delivered – but, naturally, there will be some changes to ensure your and other people’s safety.

  • 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 options 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.
  • 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 travel insurance 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 – including falling ill with Covid-19 while on holiday – and repatriation. We also recommend that you are covered for other eventualities, such as cancellation and loss of luggage and passports.

    We'll ask you for the details of your alternative policy (insurer, policy number and medical emergency phone number) so that we can help out if the worst happens while you are on holiday. It's up to you, though, to check that your policy covers the activities you'll be doing on holiday and that it is adequate for your own individual needs; we don't check alternative policies.
  • 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 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 for UK citizens can be found through the Travel Health Pro website. 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.
  • (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.
  • At Inntravel we work in close partnership with our hoteliers, taxi drivers and other local suppliers to provide our self-guided holidays directly to you. We are entirely confident that you will continue to receive the usual warm welcome from them, regardless of what is happening in the European political sphere.

    When the UK withdrew from the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020, it entered an 11-month transition period that will last until the end of December 2020. During this transition period there will be absolutely no changes to current arrangements for UK citizens travelling to an EU destination, so you can book your 2020 holiday certain that there will be no disruptions or complications caused by Brexit.
  • The UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) provides up-to-date, country-by-country travel advice, as well as information on security, local laws, passports and visas for UK citizens.
