The perfect holiday at the lake
The picturesque village of Achenkirch is located at approx. 930 meters above sea level and provides the perfect surrounding for active holidays. At the northern shores of the largest lake in Tirol, Achenkirch stands for Austrian hospitality and a diverse leisure time program – you will definitely not get bored. First, Austrian emperors discovered Lake Achensee as a place for their summer retreat, then guests from all around the world followed. Water fans, nature lovers, adventurers and people looking for peace and relaxation – all of them will find what they are looking for in one place. The local museum at Sixenhof is definitely worth seeing as it houses numerous exhibits to inform guests about the life of people who lived in this region a long time ago.
Summer at Lake Achensee
The clear and freely accessible lake is surrounded by impressive Tirolean mountains like a glittering pearl. It invites you to take a rest or a refreshing bath. Lake Achensee is fed by crystal-clear mountain streams. Therefore, a deliberately created peninsula allows for more comfortable water temperatures in a protected bathing area. In Achenkirch am Achensee and in this holiday region, guests will find everything they could possible dream of for a perfect summer holiday in Tirol. The active people amongst you know how to perfectly combine wellness pleasures and nature experience. There are plenty of sports options available around the lake and in the water including tennis, squash, horse-back riding and Nordic Walking. And if you feel more at home in the water, then you can enjoy sailing, surfing or kite surfing. Between Achenkirch and Steinberg, “Unnütz” Peak (2,078m) – the local mountain in Achenkirch – reaches high up into the sky. If you hike along the sometimes rather steep and stony path to “Vorderunnütz”, the most southern peak and at the same time the most beautiful spot in this mountain range, then you will be spoilt with unique views of Lake Achensee, the Karwendel mountains and the Rofan mountain range.
