Enoy nature
all year round

Be there and enjoy the change of nature: from the first signs of spring, to summer fun at the lake, to cosy autumn days by the fireplace, to winter sports enjoyment around lake Achensee.

Start of spring
at lake Achensee

Spring is here in Tyrol and slowly but surely transforms the wintry landscape into a paradise of green meadows, colourful flowers and a large number of animals that are making a comeback after the cold season. Yes, spring is probably one of the most fascinating seasons here at lake Achensee and is not considered the time of awakening and sprouting nature for nothing.

Nature and attractions

But it is not only nature that is coming out again, there are also more things on offer for your entertainment day after day. Numerous alpine pastures and huts are already open and offer a perfect destination for sports enthusiasts of all kinds. The boats on the lake are already diligently making their rounds, the first daring sailors are braving the still icy temperatures of the water and in the sky more and more paragliders are gradually on their way, enjoying the beautiful panorama of the region at peaceful heights and flying above the stress of everyday life.

In addition to the reawakened nature and the reopened attractions, another, probably the most important change is taking place. Because of the increasing light intensity, your own body releases numerous happiness hormones, which make you feel better. So nothing stands in the way of a happy start to your holiday.

Summer in the
Achensee region

The days get longer, the nights get shorter, life gets better. That's how easy it is to describe summer. Nature has reached its peak, an unbelievable panorama is offered to people at lake Achensee and a huge number of activities almost demands several holidays.

Sports and leisure activities

In summer there really is something for everyone. Sports enthusiasts will find a paradise that is unparalleled in the whole of Austria. HikingBiking, climbing, sailing, paddling, running, swimmin, golfing and tandem flight. We could go on like this forever. And in all activities you are surrounded by the breathtaking nature of the Karwendel Nature Park.

Quiet, relaxing minutes are also well catered for. Numerous museums invite you to marvel and bring you closer to the history & development of Lake Achensee. With the boat trip you can explore the region on the water and with the Achensee Railway, the oldest steam rack railway in Europe, you can experience a nostalgic train ride into the Inn Valley.

Hiking and active program

The cable cars take you to the mountain world around lake Achensee, where you can enjoy an extensive hiking paradise with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain landscape as well as into the valley and onto the lake.

With the Achensee Erlebniscard, which can be purchased directly from us at reception, you can use all these facilities for a whole week at no extra cost and as often as you like. The best prerequisite for a relaxing, active summer holiday!

Autumn atmosphere
at the Achensee

Summer is over and nature begins one of its most beautiful transformations. As the days become shorter again, the leaves change colour throughout the region and a vast, wonderfully colourful sea of different colours emerges. The flora & fauna at Lake Achensee slowly but surely begin to prepare for winter.

But not the Achensee itself. It continues to offer you an incredible variety of different ways to spend your holiday. Almost all leisure facilities are open until late in autumn or even continuously and are just waiting to fascinate you.

Variety of leisure activities

The Achensee Railway awaits you until the end of October for a nostalgic ride on Europe's oldest steam rack railway from Lake Achensee to the Inn Valley. But also the fleet of ships of the Achensee-Schifffahrt lets you explore the region around the lake on the water until October.

From a sporting point of view, autumn is probably the most ideal time of the year. The high summer temperatures have come to an end, a pleasant climate now awaits you and ensures that sporting activities are even easier. And the beautiful landscape, with an interplay of almost all colours, offers the ideal conditions for tours in the mountains, whether on foot or by bike.

Experience the fascination of autumn at Lake Achensee and let yourself be enchanted by its incomparable beauty. We are already looking forward to seeing you.

Winter fun at
lake Achensee

The colourful autumn season has come to an end and winter is here with us at lake Achensee. Winter, the season that knows how to inspire and fascinate people of all ages year after year.

The landscape is covered with a white blanket of snow, the rays of the winter sun are reflected in every ice crystal, no matter how small, and ensure that the entire region begins to shine and presents an incredible beauty to our guests.

Winter sports and nature experience

But it is not only nature that shows itself from its best side, the region also knows how to captivate its guests. More than 200 perfectly groomed kilometres of cross-country ski trails, three ski areas that offer the right slope for beginners as well as for experienced skiers, and wonderful toboggan runs through the wintry landscape make hearts beat faster.

But also hiking enthusiasts will not be disappointed during the cold season. No matter whether you want to take part in a guided wind hike to observe the wildlife or you want to discover the endless white landscape on your own, the region around Lake Achensee is perfectly equipped for winter holidays without skis. Over 150 kilometres of the most beautiful winter hiking trails invite you to discover the Tyrolean natural beauty "step by step".

And when you come back to the hotel after a long, cold day, you can relax in our wellness area, warm up a bit and gather new strength for the next, active day in the winter magic land.
