On the slopes

As one would expect, many people want to hit the slopes in winter. The Achensee region has the requisite ski areas, with pistes ranging from easy to difficult. There are also wide slopes that are especially suitable for children. The region’s ski schools run courses for all ages and skill levels. They also offer lessons specifically tailored to children, with qualified ski instructors teaching the young skiers how to ski in a playful way.

Off the slopes

Off the ski slopes, there are plenty of options to explore the winter wonderland of the Achensee region. How about cross-country skiing, an exhilarating toboggan ride or travelling through the snowscape on a horse-drawn sleigh, wrapped up in a warm blanket? Or would you rather discover the landscape on foot? The region boasts a network of over 150 kilometres of cleared winter walks through beautiful valleys and snow-covered forests. Like hiking, snowshoeing is a great way to experience the dreamlike winter landscapes. Ice-skating is also an ideal activity for family fun. And if you have a thirst for adventure, try bag jumping or snowkiting, or whizz through the icy mountain air on the AIRROFAN Skyglider.  

A family enjoys a marvellous day of cross-country skiing in the Karwendel valleys in brilliant sunshine.
