Pillersee, St. Ulrich am Pillersee

#18 of 66 in Nature in Tirol
Pillersee is a lake in the Northern Limestone Alps in Tyrol, Austria.
The Pillersee is in the Pillerseevalley near the village of Sankt Ulrich am Pillersee at 835 m above sea level. It occupies an area of 24.3 hectares. Inflows are several streams that originate in the adjacent Lofer Steinberg mountains and the Kitzbühel Alps. The outlet of the lake is made by the Haselbach and Grieselbach, the depth of the lake is at its lowest point 7 m.
The origin to the Pillersee is a landslide about 15,000 years ago, which interrupted the outflow of Öfenschlucht canyon and so dammed the Pillersee.

  • Dreamlike, with the pedal boat over the Pillersee, the stone slab in the background. Wonderfully kitschy idyll,absolutely recommended.

  • Strategic place if you want to spend a holiday in Tyrol. From Sankt Ulrich where you'll have the lake just a short walk away you can also reach Waidring (Triassic Park), Sankt Johann (the most interesting), Fieberbrunn and Kitzbhuel. In an hour and a half you also go to Salzburg. The lake is very nice inviting and clean. The water is very cold but with a little patience you can also swim. Don't miss if you have bikes in tow as bike lanes are a real cure-all for families with children and non-children. The nearby information office will give you any insight into the itineraries and events. On the lake there is a Bar where you can eat and rent canoes and pedal boats.
