Winter magic at Lake Achensee
Skiing is not the only thing to do at Lake Achensee in the winter. The region boasts a huge variety of winter activities beyond the ski slopes. What could be more romantic than a horse sleigh ride? Hop aboard and cuddle up beneath warm blankets while powerful, well-groomed horses pull you through the fairytale winter wonderland. Fancy an exhilarating toboggan ride? Tobogganing is the quintessential winter experience guaranteed to delight both young and old. The Achensee region has several natural toboggan runs, most of which are floodlit after nightfall, and some even until midnight. Ice sports are also very popular in the wintertime. How about taking a spin on the ice rink? Gliding leisurely over the smooth surface while soaking in gorgeous views of the snow-capped mountains and the tranquil lake is an amazing experience. And where there is ice, there are often people playing ice stock sports, a convivial and fun activity to be enjoyed with friends or the family. Or maybe you get the opportunity to compete with other Achensee visitors? Don’t worry, the game is one of the best and easiest ways to break the ice with someone.
