Autumn weekend getaway
Fancy some hiking, cycling, or a round of golf? Or maybe you want to enjoy a boat trip across the lake? Discover the red and golden hues of autumn at Lake Achensee where abundant outdoor experiences await – on land, on the water, on the mountains, and in the air.
Looking to explore the landscape surrounding Tirol’s largest lake on two wheels? The Achensee region offers a variety of scenic cycle routes which take you along the lakeshore, into the romantic side valleys and to charming mountain huts.
The Achensee holiday region offers tours to suit every level, from leisurely strolls to ambitious hikes. The blending of seasons when the peaks are snow-capped and the forests ablaze with colour is always a beautiful sight. Looking to start your tours from lofty altitudes? Take the easy way up in a gondola. The Rofan cable car in Maurach and the Karwendel cable car in Pertisau operate daily until the beginning of November (depending on the weather conditions).
Relax and unwind in the Achensee region: Wellness hotels, accommodations with their own spa areas, and the top-modern leisure centre Atoll Achensee offer a huge range of wellness options. The star ingredient of most spa treatments is Tiroler Steinöl® (shale oil) which is mined locally in the Karwendel mountains and processed in skincare products.
Whether you stroll around the villages surrounding Lake Achensee, enjoy a walk in the forests, or go mountain climbing – numerous mountain huts, inns, restaurants, cafés and pastry shops in the Achensee region provide welcome rest and refreshments.
It’s no wonder golf enthusiasts enjoy teeing off at Lake Achensee: The region boasts two scenic golf courses in Pertisau and Achenkirch. Two indoor golf simulators at the Hotel Wiesenhof and the driving ranges in Pertisau and Achenkirch provide the opportunity to practice and improve your game.
And many more experiences!
Visitors will be spoilt for choice with inspiring things to do in the Achensee region, and there are plenty of excursions to keep you entertained. Taking a boat trip on Lake Achensee is a must-do experience. And if you have a thirst for adventure, try a tandem paragliding flight or whizz through the air on the AIRROFAN Skyglider.
