Sunny moments of happiness

Your holiday by the lake in the hotel Pirchnerhof in Tyrol, Austria

Off to the cool waters! The Hotel Pirchnerhof in Austria, picturesquely framed by majestic mountains, is located not far from several small and idyllic bathing lakes that invite you to cool off, do water sports and relax. And if you should feel the urge to take a boat trip on a larger lake, we recommend the picturesque Achenssee in the Karwendel Mountains. After an unforgettable day on the water, look forward to wonderful feel-good moments at your Hotel Pirchnerhof in Alpbachtal in Austria, Tyrol.

Idyllic lakes near the hotel

You want to leave the car at the hotel and visit a lake on foot? The Reither See is only a few minutes’ walk from the Hotel Pirchnerhof. The so-called “Blaue Auge von Reith” offers families, among other things, a large sunbathing lawn, a paddling pool and a children’s play area and, in addition to cool refreshment, invites you to take a leisurely walk with a view of the lake.

Lying north-east of the hotel and about 10 km away, the landscape suddenly changes. Due to the ice tongues of prehistoric times, small round hills have formed here and created the Reintaler Seenplatte. It is part of the Tyrolean Lake District and impresses with Frauensee, Buchensee, Krummsee and Reintalersee, which are located near the valley as well as at the foot of the Rofan mountain range. Due to the special location, the sunlight is very high and heats up the water of the lakes considerably. Look forward to swimming and splashing around in Tyrol’s warmest bathing lakes as well as rowing or a stand-up paddle tour. The Reintaler See, the largest of the four lakes, is ideal for trips on the water. A very special bathing experience is offered by the Berglsteiner See, romantically situated in an idyllic natural oasis. On the shores lined with forest and reeds, there are some dreamy places to lie down and rest.

Our insider tip: The often forgotten Zireiner See is located at 1799 m above sea level in the Brandenberg Alps and is arguably the lake jewel of the Alpbach Valley and well worth a hike.

Activities at Lake Achensee in Austria, Tyrol

Another highlight is the largest lake in Tyrol, the Achensee. The natural lake is only 15 km away from the hotel, nestled between the breathtaking mountain slopes of the Karwendel massif and the Rofan mountain range and fascinates with its impressive blue tones and the excellent water quality. Families enjoy swimming and lazing around, while the more active enjoy sailing, diving, stand-up paddling or windsurfing. The region around Lake Achensee in Austria is a natural beauty and always worth a hiking tour or a trip by bike.
