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.

Well worth doing. Path all around the lake. Slow walk from Oetz and back is about 90 minutes. Picnic and bottle of water a good idea. 2 good cafe/restaurant at lake corner too. Saw some wooden boats/kayak available.

The lake and surrounding lake are really gorgeous! In winter the lake freezes over and they have ice skating on the lake,. We were there New Year's Eve and they had a lovely procession with lanterns that meet on the lake each year.
