Achensee: a magical contrast between lakes and mountains
The Achensee in Austria extends north of Jenbach, 380 m above the Inn Valley. Along with the Achental valley, it forms the border between the Karwendel mountains to the west and the Brandenberg Alps to the east. The largest lake in Tirol boasts a length of 8.4 km and a truly enviable clarity, with underwater visibility that even reaches 10 m. Diving, however, requires a bit of courage: in fact, the temperature only rarely exceeds twenty degrees C, even in the summer.
