Excursion to the Tiroler Steinöl® distillery

ACHENSEE HIKING PROGRAMME

The exclusive hike to the shale oil distillery in the “Bächental” valley is offered from the beginning of July to the beginning of October.


From the car park at the Christlum lifts we hike through the “Unterautal” valley and up to the “Gröbner Hals” (1,650 m) where we enjoy the splendid view of the Karwendel mountains. We descend to the shale oil distillery where we can have refreshments before we start our exclusive tour through the distillery. After the tour a bus will pick us up and we will travel back to our starting point past the “Sylvenstein” reservoir. The trail difficulty is easy to moderate, however some endurance is required (700 metres elevation gain during the ascent). Limited number of participants! The fee for the bus transfer from the “Bächental” valley is EUR 10.00 per person.

Return: approx. 4.30 p.m. to the Christlum parking area (bus stop Christlum – Achenkirch). The bus continues to the Information offices in Achenkirch, Pertisau and to the Welcome-CENTER in Maurach.
