The Achensee is a paradise for hikers

The Achensee is embraced by two mountains: the Rofan and the Karwendel. 500 kilometres of well-marked trails make it a popular destination for hikes year-round. Here, you will find both easy, flat trails and technically challenging itineraries, ideal for the most ambitious athletes. The best starting point? The Rieser, your hotel in the Austrian Tirol.
