Last updated on 27.04.2022

The PillerseeTal is water rich in every sense of the word. The PillerseeTal is truly an area rich in water. The swimming lake in Waidring, the refreshing Pillersee in St. Ulrich am Pillersee and the Lauchsee in Fieberbrunn invite you to splash around and take a dip. And on top of that, there are plenty of mountain experiences that are worth discovering.

Picture-book mountains and three bathing lakes are hidden in the easternmost part of the Kitzbühel Alps..

In the middle of the gentle grassy mountains of the Kitzbühel Alps, the Tyrolean PillerseeTal makes you want to go on holiday. The emerald-green Pillersee lake in the heart of the valley. The fantastic panoramic mountains all around. The PillerseeTal offers a variety of surprising lake and mountain experiences.

Breathe deeply, cool down and come to yourself

If you want to breathe deeply, cool down and find yourself in seclusion, this is the place for you. The PillerseeTal is still considered a real insider tip among bathing enthusiasts and active holidaymakers who want to feel the invigorating power of crystal-clear mountain water after an extensive hiking, biking or climbing tour.

Three bathing lakes with drinking water quality invite you to take a jump into the cool water. Beautiful, wide shore areas – each one offers its own private beach.

The Waidring bathing lake already has its purpose in its name. The Lauchsee in Fieberbrunn, with a depth of only four metres, also warms up after just a few sunny days. While swimmers start the season early here, “wellness” guests appreciate the healing and pain-relieving effect of the moor water. The Pillersee itself, after which the valley is named, rarely has more than 20 degrees even at the height of summer – and thus promises the best cooling off you could wish for after a hot summer day. In addition, there is the picturesquely situated Wildseelodersee at 1,854 m, smaller lakes such as the Wiesensee and crystal-clear mountain streams. Just pack your picnic basket and enjoy the day with your family.

You don’t need “sea”. Because the PillerseeTal, as a traditional yet varied holiday region, constantly offers new attractions that are worth discovering.
