Achenkirch - Gaisalm (Mariensteig) - Pertisau - Achenkirch
From the car park of the Sixenhof local history museum, walk to the campsite Alpen Caravan Park Achensee. Turn right and follow the signposts to the Gaisalm mountain hut past the Seewinkel. Follow the narrow path (Mariensteig) as it climbs steadily alongside Lake Achensee before it descends over steep steps to the Gaisalm (shipping pier). The route leads over scree and narrow rocky trails to Pertisau. The return is via the same route or by ship.
The Achensee region carries the Tirolean seal of quality for the high standard of its hiking paths. The "Mariensteig" has been named "Tirolean mountain trail of distinction" for its scenic beauty, stunning views and unique flora.
