Sailing on Lake Achensee
Sailing in the Alps? What might not mix well with each other at first glance turns out to be the "perfect match". Lake Achensee not only has the requisite thermals, but the region also boasts a spectacular scenery. If you are new to sailing, you can learn the basics at Lake Achensee. Usually, the wind conditions are perfect for sailing, sometimes even challenging. The light southerly wind (1-2 Beaufort scale) in the morning and the strong northerly wind (3-5 Beaufort scale) in the afternoon require strength, coordination, and courage to manoeuvre boats over the water. By the way, Lake Achensee regularly plays host to international regattas.
The infrastructure at Lake Achensee provides sailing enthusiasts of all abilities with everything they need to get out on the water. Every village in the holiday region Achensee has a sailing school where you can rent boats and book courses or lessons with professional instructors.
The use of boats, except rowing boats, on Lake Achensee is only permitted with a valid weekly, monthly, or season permit. For details, contact the lake administration. For season permits, an additional sticker must be collected at the Welcome-CENTER Achensee in Maurach and attached to the boat in plain view. Boating permits are required for sailing boats and electric boats up to 500 watts. For more information, call the Welcome-CENTER Achensee in Maurach.
