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.
Vacationers who want to experience an extraordinary kick should test the AiRofan. Like the eagle's nest, the AiRofan is modeled on the shape of an eagle. Passengers glide up 800 meters at 85 km / h up the Gschöllkopf and cover 200 vertical meters in the shortest possible time. The AirRofan is only a few meters away from the mountain station of the Rofan cable car and operates in both summer and 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.
For visitors to our campsite, the Dalfalz Waterfall is a short trip. In a good hour you can hike from Maurach towards Dalfalzer Alm and stop at the waterfall. The ideal place to enjoy rest and recharge your batteries.
Achensee Steam Cog Railway sinice 1889
A ride on the steam cog railway is an experience for young and old. Whistling, steaming and hissing, the Achenseebahn works its way through the beautiful mountain landscape. The railway covers almost 7 km of mountain route with gradients of up to 160%. The 45-minute drive reveals a diverse natural world with wildflower meadows, forests and of course a view of the Achensee.
