Achensee, Maurach

4.7
#1 of 20 in Nature in Tirol
The largest lake in the state of Tyrol, Achensee offers a wealth of opportunities for relaxation, exploration, and outdoor activities. Visit the lake, carved into the mountains much like a fjord, and relax on one of the several public beaches surrounding the body of water, which offer premier locations for boat launching. You'll be treated to mountain views rising up around you wherever you go. Discover more of the area by hopping aboard a sailboat or windsurfing board, or go for a dip. If hitting the water isn't for you, try riding along on the nearby cog railway, the oldest of its kind in the world.
