Ride up the mountain in a gondola

Summiteers can journey up the mountainside in the wheelchair-accessible gondola cabins of the Karwendel cable car and soak in gorgeous views of Lake Achensee.

The Karwendel cable car starts in Pertisau and gives access to the Zwölferkopf area.
The bus stop in Steinberg am Rofan in summer.
Barrier-free public transport

The barrier-free regional buses run all year round, servicing the routes from Jenbach to Lake Achensee and between the holiday communities. The transport companies (ÖBB-Postbus GmbH, Zillertaler Verkehrsbetriebe, Ledermair Verkehrsbetriebe, Taxi Kröll, and RVO) operate the public transport network with vehicles that comply with the Federal Disability Equality Act and are therefore barrier-free.

Visit our Achensee information offices to get information about things to do, places to stay and more. All information offices are barrier-free and have the following facilities:

  • Wheelchair-only disabled parking spaces
  • Wheelchair accessible consultation desks
  • Accessible toilets
  • Walking stick/crutch holders
  • Clear signage
  • Hearing induction loops

Outside the regular opening hours of the tourist offices, our digital kiosks (interactive displays) provide information on everything from accommodation vacancies and weather to events and activities around the clock. Visit our interactive map to find barrier-free digital kiosks.

Hearing induction loops in our service areas cut out unwanted background noise, creating an inclusive environment for visitors affected by forms of hearing impairment. The assistive listening technology systems provide the accessibility that people with hearing aids need to engage and communicate freely with our staff. NOTE: Hearing induction loops are available in all information offices.
