Excursion destinations at Lake Achensee
Sightseeing around the lake
Karwendel Cable Car
This group cable car brings you to the Zwölferkopf, high above the village of Pertisau. This is the perfect starting place for challenging mountain tours in the Karwendel mountain range or leisurely hikes around the summit. Our tip is the circular panorama tour complete with Alpine wildlife. A stop at the Karwendel Alpine Inn is worthwhile. The cable car also transports bikes, buggies, wheelchairs and dogs. As a guest of the Hotel Pfandler, you will get special deals for mountain and valley trips.
Rofan Cable Car
On the Rofan Cable Car, you will float at 1,800 metres right into the Rofan hiking region. The mountain station is an excellent starting place for hikes of all levels of difficulty, as well as hikes in the “Climber’s Paradise” with its 5-summit via ferrata.
A boat trip on Tyrol’s largest lake is always an experience. Today, the modern MS Tirol and Stadt Innsbruck ships operate the entire summer long. The whole cruise takes about 2 hours and there are two opportunities to get off the boat during the cruise.
Achensee Steam Cog Railway
Since 1889 the Achensee Steam Cog Railway has connected Jenbach and Achensee. The joint station for both the steam cog railway and the cruise in Seespitz is a unique combination.
Vitalberg, the Tyrolean stone oil museum
Tyrolean stone oil is said to have special healing powers. At Vitalberg, you can learn more about the harvesting of Tyrolean stone oil.
High rope course at the adventure park Achensee
The high rope course is located in a very beautiful forest and offers various difficulties. Newbies and experienced climbers will find their line and everybody have fun. If you get in trouble the team gives you hints or let you down on a rope. If there is energy left after the parcour you can jump form a 7 meter platform in a Bagjump or try some archery.
