Traditional Gentle Winter with Views of the Lake
When the soft morning mist clears and the snow-covered landscape glistens in the first rays of sunshine, a beautiful and varied winter day at Lake Achensee awaits.
The beauty of the freshwater fjord which lies nestled between the Rofan and Karwendel mountains was discovered long ago. Once Emperor Maximilian’s hunting ground, the region later became the home of Ludwig Rainer. Tirol’s “pop star of the 19th century” carried the song “Silent Night, Holy Night” into the world, making it the most famous Christmas carol ever.
Wrapped up comfortably warm on a horse-drawn sleigh ride
A particularly romantic way to explore the snowy winter landscape and the dreamlike shores of Lake Achensee is not only reserved for the protagonists of old fairytales and love stories: A horse-drawn sleigh ride. The snow-covered surroundings offer the opportunity for a special excursion which provides stunning views of the wide valleys at Lake Achensee.
The everlasting dream of freedom and adventure
A winter adventure at the highest level – high up in the air – is a hot-air balloon ride over the snow-covered peaks of the Rofan and Karwendel mountains. Lake Achensee is the perfect starting point for a balloon ride where passengers drift almost silently over the mountains and the lake. The only prerequisite: bright and beautiful weather, which guarantees spectacular views.
Wellness with tradition
After a day’s adventures in the wintry outdoors, by tradition there is only one item left to tick off on your must-do list of experiences: Wellness! A concept that existed before the term was even invented. Tiroler Steinöl® (shale oil) which has been mined locally from oil shale since 1902 and processed in high-quality skincare products plays a major role in the region.
The region’s wellness offer is complemented by the top modern Atoll Achensee which is located on the lakeshore in Maurach. Set on an area of 6,500 square metres, the leisure facility features the family-friendly Panorama-BAD and the Penthouse-SPA with a variety of saunas. The perfect environment for visitors to round off an active day in fresh air and recharge their batteries for the next sun-drenched day at Lake Achensee.
