Visit Tirol’s largest lake this Christmas, a wonderland of lights and water – there is plenty to see and do on Achensee Lake and around its shores when the most wonderful time of the year rolls around.
Each year in December, holiday momentum really builds when Advent season unfolds at Achensee Lake Region. As day becomes night on the shores of Tirol’s largest lake, thousands of Christmas lights sparkle and the spicy bouquet of hot mulled wine and gingerbread waft through the air, and spirits are high. Ease yourself into the festive frenzy with the atmospheric Christmas Market at the jetty in Pertisau, which presents elaborate local crafts. There’s plenty to keep the little ones (or the young at heart!) happy here! Beginning on November 24, 2022, two boat cruises invite visitors to view the magic of the holiday lights across the lake on Thursdays and Fridays. The boats cruise all jetties along the lake, which are adorned in holiday finery.
