The Tyroleans’ sea

By the water, on the water, in the water: It’s no easy decision at Lake Achensee. One thing is for certain: Tyrol’s biggest lake is an attraction for all water lovers in summer. Whether a leisurely day of idling at the sunbathing lawn, sporty on the surfboard over the waves or a reward after hiking, Lake Achensee offers everything that a bathing lake can and shines with a cleanliness that is drinkable.

Swimming & bathing

Our insider tip: Jumping into Lake Achensee already in the morning, before breakfast. The shore deserted, smooth and quiet the water surface, and you in the middle of it. The tinkling feeling of cool water on your skin will accompany you through the whole morning.

Water sports at Lake Achensee

It doesn’t have to be the South Sea, no, surfing, kiting and sailing is also possible in Tyrol. Come to Lake Achensee and experience it with your own eyes and your own body. The ideal wind at the lovingly called “Tyrolean sea” will let you glide rapidly over the water, whether on the sailing boat or on the surfboard. The gentle wind in the morning will create perfect conditions even for beginners. Pros will probably like the more powerful North wind in the afternoon best.
