Active in summer

Experience both: Mountains & lake

From the Acherl, you can be at Lake Achensee and in the mountains in no time at all. Be the first to swim in Lake Achensee in the morning, go on a great mountain tour and visit the cows on the alpine pasture, then  take our handcart to the lake and go stand-up paddling in the afternoon. Before you know it, your vacation day was simply heavenly! Oh, we love summer. Letting yourself drift, an ice cream here, a splash there, your feet in the water, and going for a spin on the bikes the next day.

Family happiness at Lake Achensee

Lake Achensee is the perfect vacation choice for families. Because here you have both: the mountains all around and the lake for cooling off, swimming and boating. It's also great that your children can take part in the children's and youth program free of charge with the AchenseeCard, which you receive as our guests. We as a family didn't move to Lake Achensee for no reason. The combination of mountain & lake is simply mega!

Mountain experiences with the AchenseeCard

With your AchenseeCard, which you receive free of charge as our guests, you can travel to the hiking and alpine paradises with discounts on the mountain railroads. Take the Rofan cable car from Maurach (12 minutes by car) up into the Rofan mountains, with Lake Achensee at your feet, the Karwendel opposite and the Zillertal on the other side. Take the Karwendel cable car from Pertisau (18 minutes by car) into the Karwendel with the Zwölferkopf, rustic paths and views as far as the Grossglockner.

Hiking in peace

In some areas, you almost feel disadvantaged as a hiker looking for peace and quiet. It's busy everywhere, you meet too many hikers, downhill bikers and bus excursions from time to time ... Not so with us. Here you can hike in peace without the worry of constantly having to move aside. We have personal hiking tips for you, or you can take part in the tourism association's guided hikes and take on new challenges and destinations with your guide.

Water sports in Lake Achensee

Lake Achensee is known as far away as Flensburg for being the largest lake in Tyrol. You can even take scheduled boats from one shore to the other! Look forward to water sports of all kinds such as surfing, pedal boating, water biking, wingfoiling, fishing, SUP, diving, sailing and electric boating. Coo, from the Acherl you can quickly reach the state-of-the-art lido with children's lake, large playground and boat rental, on foot, by bike, with the rental e-scooter or with the Acherl handcart.

Golfing at Lake Achensee

20% green fee discount for Acherl guests!

Less than three kilometers from here, the 9-hole golf course spreads out on a high plateau. How about a round of golf against the Karwendel backdrop?

Cycling & e-biking

Nice and flat or really uphill, both are possible!

Pleasure cycling by the lake

Another plus point for Achenkirch: even if you don't want to go up the mountains every day, there is plenty to do "down here". For example, take a leisurely cycle along the eastern shore of Lake Achensee to Pertisau. Here you can hop on a boat and sail back to Achenkirch. Tip: You can hire bikes from Busslehner Sports, just 350 m from the Acherl .

E-biking at Lake Achensee

Cheers to the e-bike inventors! These things take you even higher and further in the mountains to the really inspiring views and photo points. 250 km of bike trails await you in the Achensee region. Some of them lead you to alpine pastures and huts where you can recharge your batteries and those of your mountain bikes. At the Acherl we also have e-charging stations and a lockable bike garage.

And now? Choose the right room

With balcony or terrace?

Vacationing at the Acherl means: easygoing freedom. Including breakfast buffet, the rest you simply book spontaneously.
