Plan your family break at Lake Achensee!

Our service for your family holidays

Looking for family-friendly accommodations, fun activities, and hiking tours for the whole family to enjoy? Lake Achensee is a fabulous place where every family member gets to spend fun-filled and relaxed summer holidays.

Family-friendly accommodations

The Achensee holiday region is a member of the "Tirol Family Nests" which offer top-quality recreational activities for families, including a summer programme for children and youngsters for a minimum of 10 weeks. “Family Nest” partner hotels meet the required criteria and are regularly inspected by experts, making them the perfect choice for families.

Kinderhotels in the Achensee region

Kinderhotels stand for fun, quality, comfort, and relaxation for the whole family. Member hotels must meet certain criteria which are constantly monitored. The mascot of the Kinderhotels is Smiley, therefore the category and standard of accommodations are rated with smileys instead of stars. Our two Kinderhotels at Lake Achensee boast 5 Smileys, which means that they offer top-quality services for families and excellent facilities.

Explore the region by bus, cable car and ship

Public transport is a fast and eco-friendly way to explore the Achensee region. The buses take you to the starting points of hikes, to the valley stations of the cable cars, to the playgrounds and to many more family experiences. In addition, a boat trip with the Achenseeschifffahrt lets you enhance your experience or allows you to shorten some tours.
