The Buchau courses

Learning and having fun

Combine your holiday with our multifaceted range of courses for children, young people and adults. What could be better than learning something new on a family holiday, completely relaxed? Learning has never been so much fun. At the Family Resort Buchau, every age group has the opportunity to learn new skills or improve existing ones. There are interesting activities on Lake Achensee in summer and winter. The little ones can learn to swim like a professional or even like an elegant mermaid with her own tail; they’ll feel like Ariel! There is also a lot to learn on horseback and of course there is a ski course for everyone in winter. We wish you lots of fun while learning!


At our Family Resort Buchau, your children have the opportunity to discover the water safely with the SWIMTRAINER "classic" from FREDS SWIM ACADEMY. Children of all ages and abilities, from beginners to advanced to professional frogs, playfully improve their swimming ability at various levels with specially developed methods. Even babies from the age of four months have a lot of fun getting used to water safely in the swimming course for children.

Mermaid swimming

For many children a dream comes true here – like an enchanting mermaid with a glittering tail gliding elegantly through the water. Girls in particular are captivated by this water activity. But it's not only about the fantastic swimming costumes but also about movement sequences and breathtaking feats that are mastered while swimming. 

You can obtain further information from our reception or in the current weekly programme.


Riding is very popular in winter and summer and should not be missing on any successful family holiday! Our qualified staff harmonise perfectly with your children and the animals ... they act as instructors and animal keepers for our Haflinger and Shetland ponies, keep an eye out to make sure everything is as it should be and offer top conditions for fantastic riding holidays!

All the riding lessons are held in our new, bright and modern “Pferdeglück” riding hall but the Family Resort Buchau also offers fantastic rides in stunning nature, embedded in the beautiful scenery of Lake Achensee and its stately mountains.
