It's not that easy to find walks that are suitable for the whole family. After all, even the little ones want to experience something new, but please don't choose a route which is too long for little feet - Lake Piburger See makes a really perfect destination. The landmark of Oetz is especially varied in winter: scenic walks lead towards the lake or along its romantic shore where mighty Acherkogel peak is reflected in the warmer months. Now ambitious ice skaters are gliding on the frozen lake, enhancing the magic of this place.
