Pians is a lovely little resort town in the Austrian Alps. Its lands extend up to the side of the Parseierspitze Mountain, which happens to be the loftiest peak in the Lechtal Alps at 3,036 metres. Pians is popular with Austrian visitors rather than being a large international resort and a holiday apartment in Pians from 9flats could see you joining those in the know about this little gem. Your holiday accommodation in Pians offers the same sort of authentic Austrian experience as couchsurfing in Pians but gives you the added comfort and security that comes with your own private room or apartment. A holiday apartment in Pians is a great way to get to know the area from a local perspective and enjoy the local culture.
Exploring the area from your holiday apartment in Pians
Pians was originally settled in the Middle Ages when a population of saddlers and wainwrights came to stay here. Since then the industry of the town has changed somewhat and now it is known for tourism and the sausages made by local company Handl Tyrol. Visitors tend to come for the great hiking and mountaineering routes in the area. A favourite route takes you through the Schallertal valley and up the Samnaun Mountains to the Ascher refuge. This mountain shelter is more than 100 years old. Another route is the Mathias Schmid trail which commemorates the artist of the same name who was born in the area in 1839.
Choosing accommodation in Pians area
The area of Pians includes both Pians and neighbouring Quadratsch. A holiday apartment in Pians town itself is a great central base from which to explore the surrounding villages. You can visit the 14th century St. Margarethe’s chapel and take a walk up to the Schallenbach waterfall in the nearby picturesque village of See. In winter the waterfall freezes and the path turns into a toboggan run. Winter sports in Pians are focused on the Medrigalm skiing area with 30km of ski slopes. If skiing is your thing then a holiday apartment in Ischgl is perfect. Here the skiing area of the Silvretta Arena attracts visitors from all over the world. The neighbouring Swiss resort of Samnaun, meanwhile, has 238km of ski slopes and 43 ski lifts to choose from.
Moving on from Pians
For a change of scene in Austria, a holiday apartment in Vienna provides you with the perfect base while you explore the Austrian capital. This is a city of music and art, with grand imperial palaces and great concert halls. It is also the city of Freud and tours of the university illuminate the great academic achievements in the city. Leaving Austria, a short trip to the Czech Republic could see you staying in a holiday apartment in Prague where you can experience this atmospheric capital as you walk the Charles Bridge and explore the narrow streets of the old town. Wherever you decide to go, 9flats has accommodation in the best locations worldwide, so book with us for a more authentic holiday experience.
