Excitement on the lake – is anything biting?


When it comes to fishing, do you have plenty of endurance? Do you like to fish in beautiful places? Then spin fishing in Gerlos is perfect for you. Head to the Durlaßboden and Gmünd reservoirs to see if you’ve got luck on your side, just like Peter, the patron saint of fishing. You are sure to meet one or two fellow fishing enthusiasts, whether by the shores of the lake with a great view of the mountains or out in the middle of the lake in a rowing boat. Platzer guests can hire rowing boats for free; all other visitors can hire a rowing boat at the Seestüberl for a fee.
