The Buchau public swimming area is popular with families thanks to the warm water (approx. 22 °C) and the shallow lakeshore.
The sprawling village, which is also the region's educational center, has been the final stop of the Achensee steam cogwheel train (the oldest of its kind in Europe!) for more than 120 years now. With an elevation gain of 440 meters and a distance of about 7 kilometers the journey from Jenbach to Eben at Lake Achensee is an unparalleled experience.
The emerald green lake is surrounded by dark coniferous forests, flower-strewn meadows and the mighty Rofan mountains.
Special attractions are the Rofanseilbahn cable car, the "Adlerhorst" vantage platform and the spectacular "Airrofan" skyglider, which offers visitors a bird's eye view of the unique landscape.
Do not miss out on a visit to St. Notburga's, the popular pilgrimage church. Notburga, a common maid in the 13th century, is the most popular patron saint in Tirol. She was always keen to help the poor. Discover everything about the patron saint of farmers, maids, the poor and sick at the Notborga museum in Eben, the only museum in Austria dedicated to a female saint.
At the Kostenzer distillery you will be introduced to the world of schnapps. Franz Kostenzer offers some 70 different kinds of schnapps and liqueurs. You can also participate in various seminars or tours in order to get to know more about them.
Covering a total of eight hectares, the Achensee museum village portrays local traditions as well as the working and living conditions at Lake Achensee in former times. Furthermore, it offers information on local associations, institutions and special highlights, such as the Doll World. There is always something new to discover.
The fascinating combination of the natural lake and the majestic mountains is perfect for winter lovers.
The magical lake appears even more impressive between white snow-capped slopes and the majestic peaks of the Rofan mountain range. This family-friendly ski area is very popular with skiers, carvers, and snowboarders. It is easy to reach thanks to the Rofan gondola, and the state-of-the-art sky glider, Airrofan, allows for amazing eagle-eyed views of the breathtaking landscape.
A holiday here is an unforgettable experience, because there is so much to do: cross-country skiing, winter hiking, snow shoeing, ice skating, romantic rides on horse carriages, walking tours in the winter wonderland, tobogganing evenings, and much more. And families love it here, because the small children may try their first turns on the skis right in the center of the village.
St. Notburga is the patroness of servants and peasants.
She was cook in the family of Count Henry of Rothenburg, and used to give food to the poor. But Ottilia, her mistress, ordered her to feed the swine with whatever food was left. She, therefore, saved some of her own food, especially on Fridays, and brought it to the poor.
