Winter with lots of highlights

Winter at Lake Achensee is full of exciting events. Whether it is the traditional New Year’s Eve swim or the Achensee 3-Valleys Run – each event is special.

Every year the season starts with the Achensee Christmas which makes Advent a special occasion. On 31 December there’s a fun event which is not only a spectator sport but also very popular among the participants: the New Year’s Eve swim in Pertisau. Another winter highlight in the region are the Achensee ski tour camps which will take place in January and February. A new winter highlight in the Achensee region is the “Where is Behle?” cross-country ski camp powered by Atomic at the end of January. The World Cup winner and most successful coach of the German national cross-country skiing team will share tips and tricks on cross-country skiing technique and style. Nordic skiing enthusiasts can also look forward to the Achensee 3-Valleys-Run at the end of February, when professional and leisure athletes race from Pertisau into the three Karwendel valleys. At the end of the winter visitors can take a journey through the winter sky during the Achensee ballooning days

In addition to these highlights there are many smaller events which occur at Lake Achensee throughout the winter, such as brass band concerts, association events, carnival festivals and many more. More information can be found in our event calendar.
