Visitors to Lake Achensee can embrace the spirit of Christmas even before the first candle is lit on the Advent wreath. Five festive events mark the beginning of the time of contemplation. Each location has a captivating character of its own, attracting visitors with a joyous atmosphere, traditional Christmas music, Tirolean delicacies and handcrafted gifts.
The Achensee Shipping Company will host the “Seeweihnacht” and “Weihnachten wia friaga” tours over the wintry Lake Achensee. The “Bergadvent” (Mountain Advent) and “Museumsweihnacht” (Museum Christmas) are Christmas fairs full of old customs and traditions, and the “Tiroler Bergweihnacht” (Tirolean Mountain Christmas) lets visitors experience the story of the birth of Christ up close.
This year, visitors can trace the history of “Silent Night! Holy Night”. Lake Achensee is one of 13 Silent Night places in Austria, hosting four special events in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the world’s most famous Christmas song.
