Short question, quick answer

Oh Achensee! We love losing our hearts to you a thousand times over. But not our nerves when it comes to planning your vacation ;) So here is our FAQ, the most important information about your Acherl vacation at a glance. And if you have any further questions, please write to info@acherl.at or call us on +43 676 56 45 675.

By train
Achenkirch am Achensee is not badly connected by train! We would be delighted if you would leave your car at home for the sake of the environment and travel by public transport.
From Munich main station, for example, take the regional train to Tegernsee and from there the bus in the direction of Pertisau, getting off at the "Achenkirch Abzw. Achensee" stop.
Or take the train from Salzburg main station to Jenbach, then the bus to Maurach and from Maurach take the bus to our bus stop "Achenkirch Abzw. Achensee".

You love Lake Achensee and the surrounding mountains as much as we do, and that's why we believe that you can help us to protect our nature. For example like this:

  • Travel by bus & train to the Acherl.
  • Bring bathing shoes for the wellness area from home.
  • Use your hand and shower towels several times and simply hang them on the hooks in the bathroom. We only change towels that you lay on the floor.
  • You can also use the sauna towels several times. Simply take them back to your room after the spa and dry them there.
  • Perhaps skip a room cleaning in between.
  • Refresh yourself with our fabulously clear mountain water! You will find a carafe and glasses in your room. Mineral water that has traveled a long way simply doesn't have to be, especially not in plastic bottles.
  • When you're out and about at the lake and in the mountains, please don't leave any garbage behind in the countryside. There are plenty of garbage cans everywhere in the valley.
