The Pillerseetal Valley and its turquoise Pillersee lake are a haven for visitors in search of fabulous views and family-friendly themed walks.
The Pillerseetal Valey is located between the Loferer Rocky Mountains to the east and the Kirchberg Massif to the west. The best way to get an overview of the region is by taking the cable car up onto the Steinplatte plateau above Waidring, on the border between Tirol and Salzburg. Up at the top of the cable car you will find a wheelchair-accessible viewing platform as well as the Triassic Trail, a themed walking trail for families with is flat and even enough for buggies. Further south, near Fieberbrunn, you will find the Buchensteinwand rock face, capped by the 30-metre-high Jakobskreuz crucifix. Visitors can even walk inside this huge cross and climb up to the top of it for an even better view. The crucifix can be reached using a walking trail of intermediate difficulty starting in St. Jakob in Haus. The Wildseeloder mountain, south of the Buchensteinwand, has a cosy mountain hut at over 1,840 metres on the shores of a lake overlooking the grassy foothills.
