Family holidays at Lake Achensee

Walking barefoot over meadows, running at top speed through the forest and doing a cannonball into the turquoise-blue water. Lake Achensee is a place where childhood memories are created and treasured for a lifetime. Enjoy fun-filled summer holidays away from the stresses of everyday life and spend quality time together as a family. There is a huge range of shared experiences to be had in your multi-generational family holidays. The region also runs an exciting children’s and youth programme where kids can have the time of their lives while making new friends.

Biking, mountain climbing and swimming – does that sound like perfect summer days to you? Well, wait and see, that's not everything Tirol’s Sports & Vitality Park has to offer! While the grandparents play a round of golf or explore the Karwendel valleys by e-bike, the parents relax by the water, watching their children making their first attempts on a standup paddle board on Lake Achensee whose entire shore is accessible. How about a family hike to the summit followed by a stopover at one of the region’s typical mountain huts? Whatever your favourite outdoor adventure, you will be spoilt for choice with things to do at Tirol’s largest lake.

Children's programme Achensee

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 children's programme is aimed at children between the ages of 4 and 11, and in summer 2022 it’s all about Fichtenliesl and her friend Seppi the woodpecker. Activities include hiking, scrambling, solving puzzles, barbecuing, and baking. The hours will fly by – goodbye boredom! The programmes also have some activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Fichtenliesl, the mascot of the Achensee children's programme, explores the forest in Maurach together with her friend woodpecker Seppi and some kids.

Youth programme Achensee

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.

Kids ride down the river on tubes and take a break in a bay to jump into plunge pools.
