Achenkirch am Achensee

Many pistes and trails for skiers and cross-country skiers, beautiful spots for sun worshippers and accommodation in different categories!

From 5-star hotels via certified family resorts to farm-stay holidays - the picturesque village at the northern shore of lake Achensee is ideal. Situated 930 m above sea level, the village covers an area leading to the German border. You can get there on toll-free roads within 15 min. Famous artists, especially writers like Ludwig Steub, Peter Rosegger or Ludwig Ganghofer, enjoyed the special atmosphere already at the turn of the last century. They made lake Achensee a popular holiday destination.

Today, Achenkirch is as famous in winter as in summer. It's perfect for skiers and cross-country skiers.

Snow is guaranteed (due to snow-making facilities) at the Christlum lifts. The area boasts 9 lifts and 25 km of slopes and was among the first areas to support the new sport snowboarding.
Furthermore, there are 60 km of cross-country skiing trails awaiting you. You will definitely find your favorite winter activity as you can choose between horse-drawn carriage rides, winter hikes, snowshoe tours, tobogganing and much more - a true winter fairy tale.
