Ah yes, The Sound of Music, for many of us it’s our first introduction to Austria….or your first Arnie movie, depending on your preference. I’d go somewhere in the middle….An Arnie musical James?…..Yes….yes one of those.
So Austria then, the second leg of our Austro-German holiday trip in the absolutely delightful town of Pertisau on the Achensee Lake in Tyrol. This was to be the relaxing calm down after Munich and it largely was, bar a few messy..ish nights out 🙂
We arrived into Jenbach via train from Munich, where we transferred by bus to Pertisau. If you’re staying in the area the bus is completely free, excellent service.
Being a resort there’s obviously lots to do such as sailing, swimming, hiking, cycling, climbing, paragliding, canoeing, walking, strolling, looking, oohing, aahing, drinking, eating, talking, listening, smelling, skipping, viewing, more walking etc. The world really is your oyster here, you can relax and do absolutely nothing or you can go all out adventuring.
Having never been to such a resort before, I don’t have a yardstick to measure it by but I’d say you’d be hard pushed to find a nicer place to be honest. There’s something for everyone, young and old and yes the scenery is very scenic indeed as scenery goes.
I think it’s the kind of place you need to see for yourself so I’ll stop waffling now and share some photos that hopefully give a sense of the beauty of the place.
