Summer holidays at Lake Achensee
Tirol’s largest lake and its five picturesque holiday villages provide a genuine holiday paradise in summer. Tirol Sports & Vitality Park is a desirable destination for families, hikers and runners, and also for water sports enthusiasts, nature lovers, adventurers and those seeking peace and relaxation.
It is the spectacular natural realm which makes the area around Achensee so special. Tirol’s largest lake is also a paradise for sailors, surfers and kite-surfers. In summer, they are met by sun-worshippers who enjoy the views and can’t wait to take the plunge into the pure waters of Lake Achensee at the region’s bathing beaches.
The lake is nestled between two mountain ranges – on one side the Karwendel mountains rise up with their rugged rocky peaks, while on the other side chamois and golden eagles greet visitors from the peaks of the Rofan mountains. This gem of a place captivates both with its gentle alpine pastures and with its precipitous rocky cliff faces, making Achensee the perfect starting point for hikes, mountain bike tours and climbing adventures.
The region’s infrastructure clearly speaks for itself.
More than 500 kilometres of signposted hiking trails, 250 kilometres of cycle routes and 183 kilometres of signposted running routes are available in the Achensee region. The outdoor offer is completed with several via ferratas and also by e-bikes which can be hired and recharged in all villages. There are also several opportunities to play tennis in the region, go horseback riding or enjoying a ride in a horse-drawn carriage.
Achensee is also home to many Tirolean and also international golfers. With two very well-maintained golf courses and several international events, the region has long made a name for itself in the golf scene.
The region is a perfect holiday destination for anyone who wants to engage in outdoor activities and escape the stresses of everyday life. On the following pages you will find information on everything Achensee has to offer in summer!
