It is the spectacular natural realm which makes the area around Achensee so special. 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.
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.
More than 500 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.
