If you want to hike, marvel and cool off in the midst of a grandiose mountain world, the Pillersee Tal (Pillersee Valley) with its abundance of water is just the right place for you. This region in the Kitzbühel Alps is still considered a real insider tip among wild swimming enthusiasts and adventurers who enjoy the invigorating power of crystal-clear mountain water after an extensive day hiking. Wonderful bathing lakes of drinking water quality, shady resting places by rushing streams and refreshing Kneipp spa facilities invite you to take a break.
The turquoise Pillersee with its diverse leisure activities on and around the water is the perfect starting point or destination. You can also relax at the fresh mountain lakes in the region. In this Collection, we present five Tours that impress with their fabulous views and picturesque alpine pastures, and all have a refreshing angle. This area is perfect for kids too, who love to splash around as a break from hiking.
You can reach the starting points of the hikes either by car, public transport or local cable cars. With the area’s guest card, you can use the regional train and bus network for free and benefit from lots of discounts: kitzbueheler-alpen.com/en/pital/guestcard.html.
