Explore the lake path between Maurach and Achenkirch!

Family fun on the Wusel lake trail

A lakeside path named after the Achensee mascot? Yes, that's right! The Wusel lake trail is located on the eastern shore of the lake and is dedicated to the Achensee mascot, Wusel, the water spirit. The trail takes families with children through various stations with fun activities. As you meander along the trail, solve the intriguing puzzle. When you have completed all the fields on your Wusel postcard at the end of the trail, drop it in the letterbox and you will receive a surprise in the post.

The Wusel lake trail has 16 stations with lots of activities, including a sound station, a bouldering wall, and balancing steps. Along the way, tranquil coves invite you to dip your toes, swim or simply soak up the sun. Stretching 3.8 km from Maurach to Achenkirch, this flat, car-free path is an idyllic setting for family walks, tranquil strolls or a leisurely bike ride.
