We hiked up here from Oetz. It was a beautiful walk. We visited in winter,so the lake was mostly frozen. It looked like a great spot for a summer swim though!

After a walk through the forest to get there a swimming session in the cold mountain water was welcomed. For a small price we could swing in the lake, you can also rent a boat and go fishing if you don't want to swin. It...More

Easily accessible from either of the parking places, Piburger see is a 10 minute downhill walk. You'll pass a nice restorated watermill on the way. Piburger see can be enjoyed as a quiet walk with family (flat, walking path in both directions around the lake)....More

Beautiful area to run, with some nice restaurants. The lake is great to swim with warm water and a beautiful forest around it. The real mountain feeling you get here!

A bit out of the way but worth a visit to walk around the lake and enjoy the view and air. The road is a bit narrow on some parts coming here.
