Arrival by train and bus
Those who want to travel responsibly are looking for an environmentally friendly means of transport to their holiday destination and back home. So why not use public transport to travel to your Achensee holiday destination? Tirol has launched the initiative “Tirol on Rail” to promote sustainable travel, and the Achensee holiday region specifically enables guests to enjoy a comfortable, seamless and pleasant journey. Let your holidays begin on the journey and arrive relaxed and without stress. On site, visitors can explore the region with our comprehensive public transportation network.
Jenbach – the gateway to Lake Achensee
The city of Jenbach is a central traffic hub in Tirol and is only 20 minutes by bus from Lake Achensee. Up to seven times per day, for example, the Austrian train “Railjet” from Vienna stops here. There are also up to seven daily connections between the Bavarian capital Munich and Jenbach railway station, the hub for travellers to Lake Achensee. From Jenbach, busses travel comfortably and almost seamlessly to Lake Achensee. Buses operated by the Verkehrsverbund Tirol (VVT) take you to the lake at regular intervals. Visitors to Lake Achensee can take advantage of our free buses by presenting the reservation confirmation from their respective accommodation provider.
Getting around the Achensee region
At peak times there are up to four connections per hour between Achenkirch, Maurach, Pertisau, Steinberg, Wiesing and Jenbach. With the AchenseeCard, which you receive from the accommodation provider after your arrival, the regional bus at Achensee (including the trip to Jenbach) is free of charge for the duration of your stay.

The “last mile” – transfer to the train station
Often the so-called last mile, i.e. from the station to the accommodation, proves to be problematic with public transport. Of course, this is also possible with luggage, but for many tourists this last step is cumbersome and often the reason to drive the whole distance in their own car. To change this, we present alternatives to the bus trip to the Achensee.
