A great place to visit. Trips on the lake, nice places to relax with a coffee and cake. Plenty of seats on the lake side to sit and watch the world go by. Well worth a visit.

Pertisau will be a good option to stay, however, Achenkirch might be of lower prices but both locations will be of easy access to your attractions. Enjoy, Zack
