Swimming at Lake Achensee
Swimming at Lake Achensee - In Tirol's Sports & Vitality Park, the lake glistens in mysterious blue and turquoise. Nestled between the Rofan mountains and the Nature Park Karwendel, the largest protected area in the Northern Limestone Alps, lies a natural treasure. Lake Achensee is situated at an elevation of approximately 930 metres, is nine kilometres long, and 133 metres at its deepest point. Swimmers enjoy the accessible shoreline, and nature lovers are fond of the colours. The underlying light-coloured limestone rock causes the surface of the water to shimmer in hues of Caribbean turquoise and aquamarine.
The bathing beach Seespitz in Maurach at the southernmost end of Lake Achensee offers a large sunbathing lawn with access to the lake and sanitary facilities. The waters shimmer in beautiful hues of tropical turquoise. Free admission.
The Strandbad Pertisau lies on the southern lakeshore and is a popular place for families to cool off on hot summer days. The bathing beach features a 5000m2 sunbathing lawn and has direct access to the lake. Free admission.
