Lake Achensee region
Two natural beauties in one region
The mountains and lake combine into one magnificent ensemble with a host of opportunities to push your sporty limits or enjoy a relaxing holiday. You can discover a whole variety of activities in this region both in winter and summer.
Whether it’s enjoyably carving from the peak towards the lake in the four skiing areas or exploring Zillertal with its more than 500 kilometres of slopes, which is just 30 kilometres away – there are virtually no limits to your skiing fun. And anyone who prefers gliding and skating to carving really gets their money’s worth in front of Arthurs Hotel. As the approx. 200 kilometre long cross-country skiing trail leads right past the door. And for the really sedate among you, there are countless, beautiful winter hiking trails at your feet.
Summer is no less impressive: gliding over the lake by kite, chilling on the shore, simply enjoying the sun and breathtaking view and freshening up in the wonderful water – whatever your personal preference! You should definitely make the climb at least once in the warm months: into the magnificent mountains of the Karwendel Alpine Park and Rofan mountains where there are umpteen hiking and mountain bike routes to suit everyone. Lake Achensee is special in the truest sense of the word in terms of cycling. As the region is a member of the Tyrolean Mountain Bike Specialists and the Bike Trail Tirol as well as the Munich Venice trail, the long-distance cycle path from Munich to Venice that is 560 kilometres long in total.
PS: At Arthurs you don’t have to go far to get cycling. The cycle routes lead right past the front door.
An active summer
Nestled between the impressive mountain ranges and green pastures and forests is a crystal clear mountain lake whose water even has drinking water quality. A unique landscape that is equally as popular with the locals and tourists in the summer. There’s not just the diverse world of animals and plants to explore in the Lake Achensee region but also the wonderful view from the mountain peaks. Athletes also get their money’s worth here and can try out and practice a host of activities. Lake Achensee offers everyone the perfect holiday regardless of whether they’re looking for relaxation or activity.
An active winter
The magic of the wintry mountain lake is just as fascinating as the view of the snowy Karwendel and Rofan mountain ranges that frame the scenery so impressively. Whether it’s a romantic winter walk around the lake or on the mountain slopes, there’s the perfect holiday activity for everyone here. Snowkiting , cross-country skiing, tobogganing or a culinary journey at the rustic huts, the Lake Achensee region is just waiting to be explored.
