A rainbow summer.

Summer family holiday in Tyrol at lake Achensee

Summer in Tyrol's mountain landscape and all the opportunities it offers to get out and about are freeing and inspirational.

Enjoy the bright blue skies on the bike or feel the summer sun kiss your nose while out for a swim. Walk in the mountains and breathe in the fresh, clean air – and perhaps meet the odd summer shower followed by a bright and beautiful rainbow with a pot of gold at the end.

Feel the elements again.
Walk barefoot.
Pick flowers. 
Revel in your freedom. 

Cycling and mountain biking:

Racing cyclists, mountain bikers, relaxed riders or e-bikers... A whole range of routes and trails around Lake Achensee at all levels of difficulty offer such variety that you will wish for a longer holiday to keep exploring! 

We offer guided trips with our certified mountain bike guide.

He is there to help and advise whenever you need him to make sure your mountain biking is a holiday highlight to remember. You can also rent excellent mountain bikes, bicycles and e-bikes from the hotel – for adults, children and teenagers. Standard bicycles are included in the price for hotel guests. Mountain bikes and e-bikes are available for a small hire fee.

Our very own natural pool: 

Our natural outdoor pool, which we call "Kleiner Achensee" – the "Little Achensee" – guarantees re-freshing bathing fun, as it is a faithful replica of the real Lake Achensee – complete with a water slide and extensive sunbathing area. Not to mention a pirate raft that can be taken from shore to shore with a little teamwork. Fun and relaxation – ideal for water lovers of all ages!

Horse riding:

We have our own stables with a riding arena and paddock, so horse-lovers will be in seventh heaven from the moment they arrive. Our Haflinger and Icelandic horses are well trained and extremely good-natured with children. 

Carriage rides:

Our guests can find perfect happiness not just on the back of horses, but also in a carriage behind them. You can explore the area together with your family on a carriage ride.

Golf:

With a host of golf courses around Lake Achensee, what could be a better time for a round or two (or three...)? Our specially trained children's golf pro gives fun lessons for young golf fans. Entertainment, exercise in the fresh air and shared family time are our top priorities. In our family paradise, every tee-off is an experience.

Hiking:

The region around Lake Achensee is a dream come true for hiking enthusiasts: over 500 kilometres of well-maintained and well-marked trails, from paths along the flat to more challenging routes. Even experienced mountaineers will find just what they are looking for. Why not also take time for a visit to Karwendel nature reserve with its unspoiled Alpine scenery and unique biodiversity.

Jogging, running & Nordic Walking:

You will find excellent running and walking conditions right on our doorstep – through meadows and forests, cross country or along the shores of Lake Achensee. The region offers a lot of variety for runners and, with its 183 km of marked running trails, is surely one of the most beautiful running destinations in the Alps. 
Our guided Nordic Walking excursions introduce you to the magical, unspoiled countryside around Lake Achensee. You can choose the length and difficulty of the walk. Our trained Nordic Walking instructor will teach you how to use the poles correctly. He is an experienced professional Nordic Walking guide and will help you choose the right equipment and show you the most beautiful routes.

Yoga & Pilates:

Let go and recharge your batteries. Our alpine spa trainer will help you to combat everyday stress and find peace. The exercises are based on tension and relaxation, and produce deep relaxation and revitalise body and mind.

Sailing, surfing and kite boarding:

You might not typically associate these water sports with a holiday region in the Austrian Alps. Yet thanks to its unique location, Tyrol's longest lake (9 km), also known as the "Tyrolean Sea" (Tiroler Meer), offers excellent wind and water conditions for adventure sports. Our local sailing, surfing, kite-boarding and diving schools offer fun and excitement on the water. Visitors to Lake Achensee can also try their hand at stand up paddling, canyoning, white-water swimming and rafting. More information about providers is available at www.achensee.com.
