A holiday with added value
Achensee is home to the Tiroler Steinöl ® (shale oil), the only shipping company in the state and the oldest steam cog railway still running in Tirol. This means that a holiday in Achensee provides much more than just outdoor experiences. Here you will find your own added value for a stay at Lake Achensee!
The region’s classic
“Black gold”, as Tiroler Steinöl® is often called, is inseparable with Achensee. The oil shale required to extract shale oil is still mined in Bächental today. The product, whose healing powers have long been proven, is used by those who live in the region.
The Achensee Shipping Compnay and Achensee’s steam cog railway are inseparable with the region’s history, providing the foundation of tourism development. Both are among the top attractions of the region.
