Willkommen im Urlaubsparadies. Finde dein schönstes Stück vom Sommer
Tirol’s biggest lake and its five picturesque holiday towns provide a genuine holiday paradise in the summer. Tirol Sport- & Vitalpark is not just a paradise for families, hikers and runners, water babies also get their money’s worth, as do nature-lovers, adventurers and those looking for peace and relaxation.
P.S.: Zwischen dem liebling und dem Achensee trennt Sie ein 10-minütiger, gemütlicher Spaziergang.
It is the spectacular natural realm which makes the area around Achensee so special. As the biggest lake in Tirol, Achensee is also a refuge for lots of sailors, surfers and kite-surfers. In summer they gather with sun-worshippers, who are keen to take a dip and not only enjoy the breath-taking views in the region’s bathing lakes, but also the pure water in Achensee.
The lake is surrounded by two mountain ranges – on one side the Karwendel mountains rise up with their rugged rocky peaks, while on the other side chamois and Golden Eagles greet you from the summits of the Rofan mountains. This gem of a place captivates with its gentle Alpine pastures, as much as it does with its precipitous rocky cliff faces. This means that Achensee is the perfect starting point for hikes, mountain bike tours and climbing adventures.
More than 450 kilometres of signposted hiking trails, 250 kilometres cycle routes and 183 kilometres signposted running routes are available for you in Achensee. The outdoor offer is completed with several via ferratas and also by E-Bikes, which can be hired and recharged in all towns. There are also several opportunities to play tennis in the region, and to have a lovely experience riding on the back of a horse, or in a horse-drawn carriage.
Achensee is also home to many Tirolean and also international GOLF golfers. With two very well-tended golf courses and some international events, the region has long made a name for itself on the golf scene.
The region is therefore a sanctuary for anyone who wants to get active and recuperate from the stresses of day-to-day life. On the following pages you can read about and get information on everything Achensee has to offer in summer!
