From the room directly to the stream


Imagine you could slip into your waders after breakfast, head out the house and start fishing. Well, at the Platzer wellness hotel, you can! Even better, fly fishing in Gerlos in Zillertal is exclusively reserved for our guests. The main stream in Gerlos and its tributaries Schönach, Krummbach, Wimmerbach and Schwarzachbach form part of our private fishing waters and, without being too modest, are a real paradise for fly fishers! Two of the tributaries can even be fished in the rain. 

Prices Fly Fishing (only for hotel guests):

  • Day ticket: € 40
  • Weekly ticket (6 days for a stay of 7 nights) € 30 per day

A Tyrolean guest card from the Tyrolean Fishing Association (valid for 14 days in all of Tyrol from the day of issue) at a price of € 25 is required. This is issued and billed directly at the reception.

Attention: limited number of permits
Fishing permits for the Gerlos fishing water can only be guaranteed with prior reservation.

More information about fishing day permits for the Gerlos reservoirs can be found here.


Our insider’s tip would be the Finkausee: it has the highest number of graylings in Austria. The two-hour hike to Langsee is also worth it. At 2,200 metres, it attracts beautiful chars and trout.
And as the icing on the cake for your fishing holiday in Austria, we offer you a fly-tying table including stock, a drying room for your equipment and a small shop with dry flies, streamers and nymphs from RH.FLY.SYSTEM.
In the evening, you can sit together at the anglers’ regular table, relax and chat about your latest catch. Fishing enthusiasts will quite literally be in the best of company here.

Please note: The number of fishing tickets is limited and these can only be booked directly via the Platzer wellness hotel. There is no ticket availability for bookings via third parties (e.g. booking portals).

Five streams, one passion: Our fishing waters await!
