Escorted Rail Tours to Lake Achensee

The Austrian Tyrol's oldest resort

Pertisau is the oldest resort in the Austrian Tyrol, located on the shores of Lake Achensee at 940 metres above sea level. Once an incredibly popular hunting and fishing resort for the wealthy and privileged, including Emperor Maximilian I, Pertisau today is a quiet, sprawling village that enjoys an idyllic setting on the turquoise waters of Lake Achensee.

The village and lake are set against the stunning background of the Karwendel Mountains, including the famous Dristenhof Mountain Peak. Pertisau is the centre of the Achensee shipping business, where goods delivered to the village on the Achenseebahn Mountain railway are delivered to the other villages on the lake by the shipping company.
