When Tirol’s largest lake becomes the stage with our visitors in the starring role, it’s curtain up for your summer holidays at Lake Achensee, a holiday destination with tradition. The lake, which lies beautifully nestled between the Karwendel and Rofan mountains, has attracted visitors since time immemorial. What makes this region so popular? Is it the picturesque setting or the combination of mountains and the lake, boasting a huge variety of recreational activities? Probably both. What fans of the Achensee region appreciate most is the pristine natural scenery and the diverse natural landscapes featuring an ensemble of water, meadows and rocks.

Sporting pursuits and moments to get you moving!
The first act hiking, the second act biking, and the third act water sports? Or would you rather play a round of golf? Tirol’s Sports & Vitality Park offers plenty of sporting pursuits. You can conquer the mountains around Tirol’s largest lake by cable car or using your own muscle strength. The hiking trail network extends over 500 kilometres. Both the Nature Park Karwendel and the Rofan mountains boast a magnificent scenery. Cycling enthusiasts find 250 kilometres of well-signposted cycle routes. Tours of various lengths and difficulty levels let you explore the region’s natural spectacle on two wheels.

If you are looking to try something new while on summer holidays, you have come to the right spot. In the last few years, Lake Achensee became specialized in summer sports camps for adults. Join our expert guides and learn the basics of a range of sporting activities in small-group training camps. There are courses for alpine sports such as rock climbing and via ferrata or running camps for both running on flat terrain or trail running. In addition to much-needed relaxation, you get the opportunity to acquire important knowledge and the requisite skills for future activities during your summer holidays.


Wellness has a long tradition at Tirol’s largest lake.
The region is home to the soothing Tiroler Steinöl® (shale oil) which is mined locally, and to numerous 4-star and 4-star-superior hotels plus two 5-star hotels which have specialised in spa and well-being experiences for body and soul. Specialist therapists provide expert care and tailor wellness treatments to your needs. In addition, the Atoll Achensee offers fun and relaxation for the whole family. The leisure centre has 6,500 square metres, which are divided into the Panorama-BAD and the Penthouse-SPA with various saunas.
