Make a holiday rental in Lake Achensee, Austria your home away from home

Lake Achensee self-catering holiday accommodation is set in around an upland lake in Austria’s Tyrol region. It’s the largest body of water in the region, and a fantastic year-round destination, offering a wide variety of activities both in summer and winter, all in front of a truly breathtaking backdrop of towering Alpine peaks.

Things to do in Lake Achensee, Austria

Lake Achensee holiday rentals would serve as the perfect adventure getaway in the summer months, with a host of outdoor experiences on offer, as energetic or laid-back as you want. On your doorstep will be more than 450 kilometres of marked hiking trails, from taxing mountainside climbs to gentle woodland trails. Complementing this are some 250 kilometres of cycling trails, with rentals available and special biking tours organised locally. There are also a number of designated climbing areas, and for those on the hunt for some real adventure Achensee serves as a hotspot for paragliding. Another great way to enjoy the scenery would be to take a horseback ride, courtesy of the stables at Achensee. If golf is your game then you’ll be able to make the most of two high quality courses next to the lake, nestled in a truly stunning landscape. Alternatively you could time your holiday to Achensee self-catering chalets for the winter months, when there’s just as much on offer for the whole family. Particularly impressive at this time of year is the extensive network of cross-country trails, totalling more than 200 kilometres. Close at hand will also be five distinct ski areas, affording almost 60 kilmetres of well-maintained pistes. It’s the ideal place for a family ski holiday thanks to the abundance of ski schools – there are seven in total here.

It was tastefully decorated and extremely well equipped with everything we needed and more. The garden was also lovely and very well kept, a nice place to relax. It's just a 10 minute drive from Innsbruck but situated in beautiful countryside with great views. There are numerous places nearby to eat. Leo & Brigitte were very accommodating hosts and made us feel very welcome.

What we liked the best was the location - just outside the lovely city of Innsbruck and central in the Tyrol. As well as exploring Innsbruck and the mountains and the lakes nearby, we had great days out in Salzburg to the east, Bavaria to the north and Lake Garda to the south. And at the end of each day we had our lovely clean comfortable apartment to come back to...after a visit to the biergarten in the village! My wife and I and our two daughters loved Austria, loved Tyrol, loved Tulfes, loved the apartment, and would go back tomorrow. If you decide to go, don't miss the Alpenzoo!!

Suitable for children thanks to the safe environment and nearby playground. The owner was very friendly and helpful. If going to Zillertal will definitelly come back to this place. We could also buy fresh home made eggs, milk, bacon, kabanos and salami which we all enjoyed.
