Achensee from the top - a great holiday region.

Achensee & Tegernsee

Great holiday regions just across the borders from Germany and Austria.

You simply cannot go to the Achensee without having a look at the Tegernsee in Germany, which are next to each other (more or less).

Lake Tegernsee

You can plan your holiday here or just visit for a few hours doing  little detour on or from  your way to Lake Achensee – you can save the MAUT (TOLL) if you go to Achensee via TEGERNSEE. The Tegernsee is a famous German lake & recreation area near Munich. Also a holiday region at any time of the year and great for hiking and more. I partly grew up there and it is beautiful for hiking and skiing. 

If you are into food – the Braustüberl is famous and a must! Just look at the yummy pictures of the Schweinshaxe we had – a typical bavarian dish.

Have a look at their website to learn what the region has to offer.

Lake Achensee

Tirol's largest lake with five surrounding villages - nestled into the fascinating mountain scenery of the Karwendel and Rofan mountains. The region is a popular holiday destination for summer, winter, wellness and family holidays.

The region is great for hiking (easy strolls and more advanced), skiing, boat tours, golf, paragliding to name the activities, but there are also museums for the rainy days.

Best explore their website to know in detail what this region has to offer.
