Sailing around Achensee, Austria
Even Emperor Maximilian I was enchanted by the beauty of the Tyrolean Achensee. A lot has happened since his first visit more than 500 years ago when the cornerstone for the Tyrolean summer resort was laid. At that time the noble elite mainly came to hunt and fish - today visitors to Tyrol's Sport and Vital Park can expect a wealth of sports: running, hiking, mountaineering, sailing, diving, surfing, kiting, stand-up paddling, tennis, climbing or would you prefer golf?
The possibilities for sports and relaxation on the Tyrolean Sea are diverse. Holidaymakers especially enjoy the combination of mountain and lake, whether on a relaxed rowboat ride or an idyllic picnic on the lake shore.
New this summer: the “Hop on Hop off” day ticket for Achensee shipping. Take the boat all day to your heart's content and get on and off as often as you like: swimming on the turquoise shimmering flat south bank, a longer visit to the Gaisalm, which can only be reached on foot or by boat, sundowner in Pertisau and much more more. The ticket costs 21 euros for adults and 10.50 euros for children; the family ticket for two adults and two children is available for 43 euros.
