Signposted walking trails from various starting points lead to lake Piburger See, for example from the village center of Oetz or from Piburg's car park. A loop walk around the lake is a highlight for all the family: While the narrow, partly rocky path with tree roots stirs up the spirit of adventure on the eastern shore, the broader trail along the western shore is even suitable for baby prams. Refreshingly cool, earthy forest air and exciting geological formations such as blocky scree slopes accompany you along the entire loop. It was not always as peaceful as today at scenic lake Piburger See with its crystal rocks. Originally, the lake basin was a steep valley parallel to Ötztal. After the last Ice Age a massive rockslide blocked its southeastern edge and covered the entire valley floor. This was the origin of the lake which has become a landmark of Oetz.
