Maurach


 

Maurach and neighbouring Pertisau belong to the municipality of Eben, the main tourist centre on the southern shore of Lake Achensee.

Ticket collectors working on the Achenseebahn railway line need to be pretty fit. As Austria‘s oldest rack-and-pinion steam railway slowly climbs its way from Jenbach up towards to Lake Achensee, they must climb from one carriage to the next clinging onto the outside of the train! Upon arrival in Seespitz, the final destination of this picturesque 19th century railway, visitors can board one of the many boats criss-crossing the lake and enjoy a mini-cruise over Tirol’s largest body of water.

It is, however, worth getting off a few stops earlier to explore the beautiful lakeside village of Maurach. Maurach and neighbouring Pertisau form the municipality of Eben, the main tourist centre on the southern shore of the lake. Both in summer and winter Lake Achensee attracts guests from around the world, drawn to this corner of Tirol by the relaxed atmosphere and lakeside flair.

Windsurfing and sailing are two sports which are very popular with residents living in the villages dotted around the shore. Swimming, however, is something reserved for the bravest of the brave – the water temperature of the 133m deep lake between the Karwendel and Rofan mountains is only 20 degrees Celsius even on the best days!
