Pertisau is a small town on the western side of the beautiful Achensee lake. It is the best starting point for hikes in the northwestern part of the Karwendel Mountains. Here you can walk along the waterfront, go on a boat trip or swim in the lake. Take the cable car to the Zwölferkopf hill (1491 m) or discover the beautiful mountain valleys of Falzturntal and Gerntal

A blind road leads to Pertisau on the western side of Lake Achensee, which can be reached from the B181 road connecting Germany with the Inn Valley around Achensee. Along the road there are plenty of parking spaces (paid) from where you can take a walk to the lake. Above the eastern end rises a small limestone mountain range Rofen
