Experience nature and sights at Achensee
Austria's emperors first discovered Lake Achensee as a summer retreat. Then guests came from all over the world to admire the largest mountain lake in this region with its diverse natural landscape. Then as now, the holiday paradise around the emerald green lake is an extraordinary piece of Tyrol. From our campsite you have a variety of opportunities to enjoy this landscape extensively. In any case, you should not miss these:
Eagle's nest at Gschöllkopf
At 2,039 meters, there is a huge viewing platform on the Gschöllkopf - the eagle's nest. The platform, which weighs around 15 tons, is modeled on an eagle's nest and is unique with an 8-meter diameter and a 360° panoramic view. If you are on holiday at Lake Achensee in summer, you should not miss this view - the eagle's nest is closed in winter.
Rofan Cable Car
The Rofan cable car opens up one of the most beautiful hiking areas in the Tyrolean Alps. From the valley station at 980m, accompanied by a breathtaking view, it goes to the mountain station at 1,840m. From here, numerous hiking trails invite you to extensive mountain tours with a phenomenal view of the wonderful alpine landscape.
