The Thiersee valley, located on a sunny plateau, is surrounded by gentle hills and majestic peaks.
Altitude: 678 m asl (Vorderthiersee)
The Thiersee valley includes a territory ranging from 616 m (lake) to 1,986 m asl. Until WWI, when the road from Kufstein to Thiersee has been built, this locality had been quite isolated. From 1946 to 1952, however, it has been the centre of Austrian film production, as “Das doppelte Lottchen” (Lottie and Lisa) and “Blaubart” (Bluebeard) were shot here.
Directly at the lakeside there is the passion-play locality Vorderthiersee. This is where you can enjoy comfortable Tyrolean ambience - likewise in Landl and Hinterthiersee, both located slightly higher. The beautiful mountains and woodlands, pristine Lake Thiersee as well as the alpine flora and fauna render this place a unique holiday resort and a paradise for nature lovers: 150 km of hiking trails make your hearts leap for joy! Other leisure time activities include horse riding, mountain biking and playing tennis.
In winter you can choose from three small sking areas: the Schneeberg-Hagerlifte in the Thiersee-Mitterland ski centre in Vorderthiersee and the Schattberglifte in Hinterthiersee feature three lift facilities, and the Sonnseitlift in Hinterthiersee offers one T-bar lift and a 500 m long ski slope. After an exhausting day on snow, stop off at one of the local restaurants, where you can enjoy local dishes.
Our recommendation: the Ackernalm pasture with own cheese factory, which can be reached from Landl, is a popular hiking destination. In the 12th century it has been mentioned for the first time. Also a toll road brings you to this beautiful mountain pasture.
