After exhausting hikes on hot summer days you can enjoy a break or a jump in one of the cool lakes of Tyrol.

There are several lakes in the beautiful landscape of Tyrol, which are perfect for a jump after a hike (in the pic Lake Kaltwassersee in the surroundings of Seefeld). Bigger lakes like Lake Achensee offer various activities such as sailing and windsurfing!
