St. Georg zum See

Magic Winter

The local area not only offers adrenaline rushes and pleasures of skiing on bustling ski slopes. If you would like to spend winter holidays on the shores of Lake “Achensee” without skis, you can enjoy numerous other leisurely outdoor activities and explore the snow-covered mountain landscape far from the busy ski slopes. The snow crunches under the boots with each step and the cold winter air is filled with thousands of sparkling ice crystals.

There is nothing more beautiful than to explore the winter wonderland on the shores of Lake “Achensee” during a winter walk. In the fascinating countryside, there are 150 kilometres of delightful footpaths, allowing you to discover the beauty of the nature at a leisurely pace and in complete silence. View the winter walks.

Horse-drawn Sleigh Rides

Enjoy a sleigh ride across the enchanting countryside and listen to the relaxing clip-clop sound of the horse hooves either at daytime in the sunshine or at night under the twinkling stars - simply marvellous.


On the shores of Lake “Achensee”, sledging enthusiasts can choose among five natural sledge runs with a length ranging from 1.5 to 3.0 kilometres. There are both family-friendly and challenging runs for exciting sledge rides.

Guided Walks

The rangers of the “Naturpark Karwendel” Nature Reserve will be delighted to show you the rich wildlife in this realm of ice and snow during a guided winter walk.   

Sledging at night is great fun. In Achenkirch you can enjoy night sledging every Wednesday. On the other four sledge runs, this is possible every day.

If you prefer getting effortlessly to the top of the sledge run, you can use a lift in Achenkirch. In the village of Pertisau, the “Rodlexpress” takes you to the top.  

The interactive panorama map of the “Achensee” region shows all facilities and services for enjoyable outdoor pursuits in winter.


Snowshoeing is another great way to explore the pristine winter countryside. If you would like to learn more about the wildlife and feel safer in the mountains, you can hire a qualified and knowledgeable mountain or walking guide. The snowshoes and walking poles help you make your way through the deep snow and discover the fauna in the fabulous winter scenery.
