Swim Tirol's largest lake end-to-end!

First Achensee long-distance swim event

On 14 July 2024, Lake Achensee will host a long-distance swimming competition for the first time. The open water swimming distances in Tirol’s largest lake range from 250 metres to the supreme discipline of nine kilometres. Alongside other alpine lakes such as Tegernsee and Chiemsee, the Achensee region will become a venue for swimming competitions for the first time, offering the longest rated distance in the "arena Alpen Open Water Cup" series.


Competitive and amateur swimmers, children, teenagers – join us for a swim event that will make history at Lake Achensee!

The race number distribution and the award ceremony will take place at the SEE-Bad at the Atoll Achensee Atoll.

The full 9 kilometres

Yes, you've read that right! It’s the longest distance and a unique chance to swim the full 9 kilometre length of Lake Achensee. This "supreme discipline" from the bathing beach Achensee Nord (Strandbad Achenkirch) to the SEE-Bad at the Atoll Achensee is also a point-value race for the biggest open water swimming cup in the German-speaking world. The "arena Alpen Open Water Cup" is a series of swimming competitions with a common points-based system.

For children, youngsters and amateur swimmers

In addition to the long distance of nine kilometres, the event will also include shorter distance races. Swimmers can choose from distances of 5 kilometres (middle distance) or 2.5 kilometres (short distance). For children, youngsters and amateur swimmers, there are races over 500 and 250 metres. The start and finish of each race is the SEE-Bad at the Atoll Achensee in Maurach.
