The crystal clear Lake Achensee meets the prehistoric sea
Lake Achensee is one of the most popular destinations for wellness holidays. After all, Tirol’s Sports and Vitality Park is the home of Tiroler Steinöl® (shale oil) which is renowned as the typical Tirolean wellness and health elixir.
A breathtaking natural scenery, numerous top wellness hotels which are among the best in Tirol and/or Austria, and of course the Tiroler Steinöl® are the ingredients for the extraordinary wellness options offered by the Achensee region year-round.
Water & exercising provide well-being
Tirol’s largest lake enjoys a beautiful setting beneath a backdrop of the majestic Karwendel and Rofan mountains. At any time of the year, the special atmosphere begs visitors to slow down and relax. The region offers a multitude of sporting activities: In summer there are Nordic walking routes, mountain bike routes and golf courses, and winter entices visitors with an extensive network of perfectly groomed cross-country ski trails, countless winter hiking paths and a variety of snowshoeing tours. After a day in the wonderful nature you can feel how good exercising is for body and soul.
The healing legacy of the sea
Tiroler Steinöl® is wonderful to relax aching muscles after an active day. The oil is mined locally in the remote Bächental and processed into natural skincare products such as massage oils, fossil fango, traditional ointments, shampoos and shower gels. If you want to learn more about the history of the shale oil miners, visit the Vitalberg in Pertisau: the visitor centre lets you experience up close how much work and expertise is required to extract the precious essence from the black oil shale.
Pamper yourself in excellent wellness areas
It goes without saying that Tiroler Steinöl® products play an important role in the many wellness hotels at Lake Achensee. The top-notch spa hotels offer many treatments for you to put together your personal wellness programme. Specialist therapists provide relaxation and expert care in the wellness hotels at Tirol’s largest lake, and the spacious sauna and bathing worlds leave nothing to be desired.
