Tobogganing and Sleigh Rides

In winter, Lake Achensee becomes a romantic wonderland of snow-covered forests. Sleigh rides are a wonderful way to discover the scenery. Those who are looking for some fun and action, can go tobogganing on beautiful natural runs.  

evening excursion to the toboggan run in Pertisau

At Lake Achensee, there are six natural toboggan runs between 1.5 to 4.8km long to choose from, ranging from family-friendly to fast-paced and demanding. Those who do not want to trudge uphill can take the lift to the starting point in Achenkirch. In Pertisau, a tractor toboggan shuttle takes visitors effortlessly up the mountain.

Tobogganing is particularly good fun at night. In Achenkirch, you get to enjoy this fun activity every Wednesday, while it can be enjoyed throughout the week at the other four toboggan runs. By the way: The toboggan run in Achenkirch has been awarded with the “Tirolean Quality Seal for Natural Toboggan Runs”.

Horse sleigh rides

Sleigh rides are a classically romantic way to discover the winter wonderland at Lake Achensee. The horses maintain a steady rhythm and the sleigh glides on, swiftly and silently. Cuddle up beneath blankets in the sleigh as you journey through the snow-covered Karwendel valleys – in brilliant sunshine during the day or under the glistening starry sky at night.
