Plan your family holidays at Lake Achensee

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.

Family-friendly hikes

Looking for family-friendly walks? Plan your outdoor adventures with our interactive tour planner. Filter by difficulty, elevation gain and activity to find hiking tours to suit all abilities.

Achensee Children's programme

Kids looking for a parent-free fun day out can join the children’s and youth programmes which are inexpensive and available to all young visitors. Every weekday the programme features a diverse range of experiences outdoors in nature overseen by qualified child supervisors. The Achensee children's programme is aimed at children between the ages of 4 and 10. The programmes also have some activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Achensee youth programme

During the same period, the youth programme provides a daily adrenaline rush for young explorers between the ages of 10 to 16 years. Our summer activities will keep children of all ages entertained, giving parents a well-earned break. The perfect opportunity for climbing or cycling tours that are not suited for families, or maybe you just want to while the day away on the lakeshore.

Achensee Autumn Programme

Lake Achensee is nestled in the middle of the Tirolean mountains, and its turquoise blue waters attract visitors year-round. In autumn, nature provides us with a beautiful blast of colour with leaves turning red and golden. Our offers for family holidays are just as colourful, and in October and November, the Achensee holiday region becomes your favourite destination for your autumn holidays. Plenty of exciting adventures await our young visitors, with activities ranging from bread making courses to pony riding to a family hike under the stars.
