Lake Achensee has something for everyone!

Multi-generational holidays

The children are excited and looking for fast-paced fun, the grandparents want to enjoy winter at a leisurely pace, and the parents can’t wait to hit the slopes. Multi-generational trips are the perfect way to reconnect with your family, but it’s not easy to meet everyone’s interests. The key to a successful holiday with the extended family is finding a place that offers plenty of activities for every member of the family. Welcome to Lake Achensee, the perfect destination for everyone.

Achenkirch am Achensee

Achenkirch is also ideal for a day out with the extended family. The ski area Christlum is known for its wide slopes, which are most suitable for families with children. Alternatively, the parents can go ski touring while the tiny tots make their first turns in the Christlum Dinopark. For a special shared family experience, join our ranger-guided winter hikes where you get to observe the wildlife of the Nature Park Karwendel, Austria’s largest nature park.

In the ski area Christlum in Achenkirch skiers enjoy the sun and the view of Lake Achensee and its surrounding mountains.

Maurach am Achensee

There's no shortage of family activities in Maurach in the winter. While the little ones practice their first turns in the ski school, the older siblings hit the slopes under the expert guidance of a ski instructor. The parents explore the cross-country ski trails along the lakeshore while the grandparents set out for leisurely winter walks. In the afternoon, the whole family regathers, ready to recount a day of adventures. The Atoll Achensee is perfect for winding down together. Splash about to your heart’s content in the Panorama-BAD complete with family pool, children’s pool with water playground and a 90-metre flume water slide. The Penthouse-SPA offers various saunas and a range of massage treatments.

The fresh snow enchants the landscape around the Atoll Achensee in Maurach into a real winter wonderland.

Pertisau am Achensee

At the ski lifts Planberg and Wiesenlifte in Pertisau, the professional instructors of the local ski school cater to skiers of all ages and skill levels. In the ski area Zwölferkopf, parents and children can swoop down the slopes together. The grandparents might enjoy the 1.5-hour panoramic circular walk. If you are looking to satisfy your need for speed on the snow, how about a tobogganing ride on the natural run from the Zwölferkopf to Pertisau? If you want to repeat the thrill of the ride, take the cable car up the mountain. A second toboggan run winds its way down from the Rodlhütte which can be reached by foot or “Rodlexpress” shuttle. Pertisau is also known for its outstanding cross-country ski trails.

Tobogganing on the Zwölferkopf is a fun outdoor winter pursuit for the whole family.

Steinberg am Rofan

Small, tranquil, and perfect for people looking to connect with nature: Steinberg am Rofan is a winter storybook idyll. It is also an excellent place for winter hiking, tobogganing or cross-country skiing, alone or with the whole family. Steinberg is one of Tirol’s “Mountaineering Villages” which focus on environmental awareness and sustainable tourism.
