Achensee, Maurach

4.8
#1 of 56 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.

  • I am already 3 times at the Achensee and whether summer or winter, it's always nice. Invites the Karwendel mountains to beautiful mountain tours in summer and in winter it has wonderfully groomed trails for cross-country skiing. The Alpine ski resort of the Karwendel cable car is tiny and driven off in a day. The slopes are very well prepared and maintained. Though not particularly demanding. Thus optimally for beginners or people that are after years on the boards trust again. Similarly, one can undertake wonderful snow walks. All in all is around the Achensee relaxing with very high recreational value and an excellent panorama. Again and again.
