The lake in winter

The region around Lake Achensee in Austria is not only a great destination for winter sports, but also a wonderful place for relaxing and slowing down. The air sparkles like champagne, and the deep blue sky shows first signs of spring – while you enjoy dashing down slopes or cross-country trails, or experiencing a romantic carriage ride.

If you prefer to take things more leisurely, you will appreciate the beautiful winter hiking trails that invite you to discover the slow pace around Lake Achensee. A special experience is a snowshoe hike, during which you can reach the most beautiful spots amidst the mountain solitude. An activity that can be both romantic and a lot of fun is a Toboggan ride. Hike uphill in sunshine during the day, and at night enjoy the silence of the winter forest. A stop at the mountain lodge is a must before racing down into valley on the toboggan run.
