Active winter holidays on Lake Achensee

The Buchau as a perfect starting point

White peaks, a snow-covered landscape and a clear mountain lake, which region can claim all this in winter? Just that awaits you at the Family Resort Buchau. It is not just pleasing to the eye here, but there is also something for anyone who wants to let off steam more or less actively. From romantic walks to fast downhill runs, everything is possible here. It is also particularly practical that all these things can be done basically on the doorstep. You are spared long journeys to ideal places as a result and you have much more of your holiday in our region on Lake Achensee and at our children’s hotel. So bring on winter in Tyrol, you are well prepared for every activity at the Family Resort Buchau! 

Not only can our guests enjoy classic sports in the immediate vicinity of the Family Resort Buchau, but also many other activities in the snow. Fantastic winter hikes, horse-drawn carriage rides and tobogganing excursions to cosy huts are also unforgettable experiences for winter enthusiasts of all ages.

With the interactive Achensee map, you have all sports and tour tips at a glance.

Winter hiking

Paths across the white blanket of snow, through snowy forests or up to snow-covered peaks – winter hiking is a hit. You can stroll through Lake Achensee’s unique nature in fantastic conditions on more than 100 kilometres of ideally prepared paths. As a special highlight you can take a walk around the beautiful mountain lake and marvel at the reflection of the mountains in the clear water.

Tobogganing fun

Borrow a sledge free of charge and start your tobogganing fun in a very relaxed way. You can ride down to the valley and have an exciting race with the other tobogganists or simply enjoy nature in a very leisurely way on 5 natural toboggan runs. At between 800 metres and 3.5 kilometres long, you will find both fast and family-friendly tobogganing fun for all age groups.

Horse-drawn carriage ride

A fairytale experience for the whole family

Wonderfully romantic, interesting and still warm, even though you are outside – a horse-drawn carriage ride through the Lake Achensee region is something very special. Wrapped in warm blankets you can explore the area around beautiful Lake Achensee and marvel at the impressive mountain peaks as well as the white snowy landscape. We would love to organise a carriage ride for you.

Winter riding

Our popular Rieser’s Holiday Ranch opens its gates for little cowgirls & cowboys in winter too. You ride through the dreamy and romantic winter scenery of Lake Achensee on horseback.
