Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
Lake Achensee is completely surrounded by foot. With the bike it is only on the side Achenkirch-Maurach-Pertisau and back. The route over the Gaisalm is not passable. If the road is too far, you can shorten it with the boat trip on the lake, this drives to various stops on the lake and saves some the way back. A great place to eat.

One of the most beautiful Alpenssen I know. A natural jewel of the first order. Despite strong tourism development, the lake is still drinking water quality, but it is also always quite cold and only in the months of July and August really suitable for swimming. A paradise for hikers, cyclists, sailors and windsurfers.

The Achensee is north of Jenbach in Tirol, 380 m above the Inn Valley. Together with the Achental, it forms the border between the Karwendel mountains in the west and the Brandenberg Alps in the east.
The Achensee, which is up to 133 m deep, is the largest lake in Tyrol. It has excellent water quality (approximately drinking water level) with visibility of up to ten meters under water. Its water temperature is correspondingly low for a mountain lake and hardly ever exceeds 20 °C. Occasionally, the Achensee is referred to as the Tyrolean Sea due to its size and the optimal wind conditions for sailors and surfers.
In the south, the shore towns are the holiday resorts of Pertisau, Haus Seespitz (former hotel), Maurach and Buchau, which belong to the municipality of Eben am Achensee, and in the north the municipality of Achenkirch with the districts of Scholastika (hotel) and Achenseehof (beach).
