The lake is situated in the northern part of Tyrol, 922m above sea-level. It's 9 km long, 1 km wide and 133m deep and is known as one of the most beautiful lakes in the Alps. The mountains are so high that there is no road connection to the western bank of the lake.

On the eastern bank, there is a beautiful street rich in sights which is partly built into the cliff. The lake water has been used since 1928 to produce electricity.

The diverse ski-area of the Achen valley with more than 25km of ski-runs offers wintersport-facilities for every level.
If you are looking for hospitality and cosy, traditional mountain hut atmosphere, you will surely find it in the Karwendel and Rofan mountains above the emerald-green Achensee lake. Alternative: Summer description
