Winter Exploration around lake Piburger See

Scenic lake Piburger See was the result of a natural disaster. Today the lake has become one of the most renowned nature treasures of Oetz. Originally the lake's basin was a huge rift running parallel to the Ötztal. The scenic lake makes a picture-book winter wonderland.

More than 20 kilometers of cleared winter walking trails can be found in the surroundings of lake Piburger See. Romantic hiking routes travel from the village of Oetz towards the frozen lake, through snow-covered meadows and forests... winter dreams come true here.
