Achensee, Buchau - view to the village Pertisau

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 boat ride and Achensee’s steam cog railway are inseparable with the region’s history. It was with them that tourism began to develop in Achensee and they are still unique sights today.
