Holidays with added value

The Achensee region is home to the Tiroler Steinöl ® (shale oil), the only shipping company in the state and the oldest steam cog railway in Tirol. This means that a holiday at Lake Achensee provides much more than outdoor experiences. Here you will find your personal added value for a stay at Lake Achensee!

The region’s classic

“Black gold”, as the Tiroler Steinöl® is often called, is the region’s local elixir. The oil shale from which the shale oil is extracted is still mined in the Bächental today. The products whose healing powers have long been proven are used by hotels and residents in the region.

The Achensee Shipping Company and Achensee’s steam cog railway are deeply connected with the region’s history, having laid the foundation of tourism development. Both are among the top attractions of the region.

Added value for all visitors

The AchenseeCard, the visitor card which all guests staying overnight receive for free from their accommodation providers, provides guests with many bonus services and promotions. It allows free access to the cross-country ski tracks in Pertisau, free use of the regional buses and discounted entry at many attractions and leisure facilities.

The Achensee Holiday Card allows visitors to make the most of their summer holidays, providing an all-round experience at a very favourable inclusive price of EUR 68. The card allows unlimited use of the region’s cable cars, the Achenseeschiffahrt and free entry to many attractions at Lake Achensee.

Located directly on the south-eastern shore of Lake Achensee in Maurach, the top modern leisure centre Atoll Achensee is the region’s hotspot for tourists and locals, offering year-round recreation and activity opportunities.

And for those looking for action the Airrofan sky glider provides a very special adrenaline rush.
