An absolutely beautiful region
Sep 2020
There is so much to see and do here, whether you stay in your hotel and relax or decide to hike up the mountains, take the boat around the lake or the local buses to other sights. There are even guided hikes for solo travellers.

great destination, beautiful nature, many leisure options - worth to see!
Jul 2020
One of many beautiful mountain lakes in the area and definitely worth a visit.

The leisure activities on Lake Achensee - varied and something for everyone!
- stroll and dine on the waterfront in Maurach and Pertisau - with wonderful cafes and restaurants right on the shore
- Rent a boat across the lake or rent a boat. There are pedal boats and motor boats
- Endless opportunities for hiking. Around the lake - approx. 24 km. Or take the gondola up a mountain, enjoy the view and go down again, or hike. The descents are well developed and easy to walk on.
- perfect for cycling. Both leisurely routes around the lake, as well as downhill and mountain bike excursions.
- if you feel like swimming, there are many places where it is possible to stay and lay - even when the water is cold, also in summer!
-Paragliding: a great view over the Achensee

Many small excursions nearby, or directly on the lake.
A trip to the Gaisalm can either be done by boat or on foot. The route from Pertisau is easy and also possible with small children or by bike. Coming from Achenkirch, the path is more demanding - steeper, with stairs and definitely not feasible by bike (not even for mountain bikes!).

Even if the water does not shine as fascinatingly as at the Eibsee, it is still worth a trip. A very clear recommendation for the Zillertal, Achensee and the surrounding area. Much more than just a day trip. A wonderful landscape and nature, and so many worthwhile places very close, too.

Beautiful location, fun boat trip
Aug 2019
We came here for a day trip in the summer and loved it - the location is so beautiful, very scenic. We parked in Pertisau and were lucky to find parking along the lake. From there it was a short walk to the boats - you can take a round trip or a one-way trip for a various length of time - we were here with two small children so opted for a 40-minute round trip around the lake and that was perfect. Once you're on the boat you can order ice-cream and coffees etc - this is quite highly priced as you would expect, but it's part of the experience.
Absolutely beautiful location and we can't wait to return and spend more time here.

Been at Achensee before, and will be back. The area is very scenic, and very good for hiking and water sports in the summer, and skiing and wintersports in the winter. A lot of nice hotels and pensions to chose from

AWESOME!!

Very nice lake! We parked in the area called "Pertisau" and walked around. We rented a paddle boat and the kids had a great time out on the open water. The prices in this town for food etc. are on the high side. Great time was had by all!!

Nice and Relaxing
Aug 2019
We took the ferry from Pertisau (one of the largest villages on the lake shoreline) to the top of the lake at Scholastika and return. The boat is quite a good size and has good facilities including food, drink and pristine toilets. The other places stopped on route are quite small and are probably not worth getting off at, particularly since you’d then have to wait an hour for the next boat.
