Achenkirch am Achensee

The small holiday resort at the northern end of lake Achensee.

Achenkirch is delightfully situated at the northern bank of lake Achensee at an altitude of 930 m. Thanks to the friendly ambiance, a diverse range of sports including hiking, cycling and golfing can be pursued. You can also choose between all sorts of hotel categories ranging from *****star hotels to farms. Achenkirch is near the German border and can be reached within 15 min by car (no toll fee).

Well-known artists and writers such as Ludwig Steub, Peter Rosegger and Ludwig Ganghofer also spent some time at lake Achensee and enjoyed the special atmosphere of this unique holiday resort. Our guests love the variety of hiking possibilities e.g. to the Unnütz mountain with an ...

... altitude of 2075m.

Mountain bikers and golfers will equally love Achenkirch ...

... as one of the two golf courts at lake Achensee is located on an attractive plateau nearby - the 9-hole court is ideal for beginners.

The access to lake Achensee is free for everyone but a bath in Achenkirch can be especially chilling as crystal clear mountain streams run into the lake. An espacially created promontory ensures unlimited bathing fun as the water is a bit warmer at this part of the lake. Achenkirch is also ideal for lots of other sports activities such as tennis, squash, horse back riding, sailing, windsurfing, inline skating, jogging, Nordic Walking, etc.

Agriculture still plays an important role in Achenkirch. At the musem Sixenhof farm, you have the opportunity to discover how farmers lived and worked earlier on. The farm made its first appereance in the chronicles in 1361. Altogether 19 rooms bring farming tools, a blacksmith, a shoemaker and a weaving mill back to life.
