From the town of Pertisau, located on the shores of the beautiful Lake Achensee, you can take beautiful trips to the Karwendel Alpine region. Take the toll road to the more famous Falzthurntal valley or to the smaller and less visited Gerntal, which also offers nice views and hiking opportunities.

Parking at Gernalm

The main starting point for hikes in this valley is the mountain farm Gernalm (1,170 m above sea level) six kilometers away from the town of Pertiasau. There is also a large car park
