Sailing in Tirol

Surrounded by soaring mountain peaks, sparkling Achensee Lake is a scenic spot for sailor.

As Tirol’s largest lake, pristine Achensee Lake is popular with sailors. Thanks to its idyllic setting amid the Karwendel Mountains, Achensee Lake is nicknamed “fjord of the Alps”. The size of the lake coupled with fairly constant northern winds that pick up around 1:00pm to 2:00pm almost always ensures a great ride.
