Pertisau is a small village on the Achensee Lake in the Tyrol region of Austria in the Schwaz (district). It is located in the Karwendel Alpine Park, one of the oldest, cross-border, protected areas of the Eastern Alps. The picturesque town was used by English school story writer Elinor M. Brent-Dyer as the first setting for her Chalet School series, under the fictionalized name of Briesau am Tiernsee; a plaque on the wall of the village bookshop commemorates her writings.
Pertisau is also the center for the Achensee shipping business. Ships start their journey along the lake from Pertisau and connect the villages around the lake with the Achenseebahn rack and pinion railway at Seespitz Station.
The village produces Tirolean mineral oil, an all-purpose tonic with a 100 year old tradition of Tiroler Steinöl.
