Lake Achensee Ferry and Cruise Company

The ships on the largest lake of Tyrol make you experience Lake Achensee and the surrounding alpine world from the water.

In 2017, 130 years of the Lake Achensee Ferry and Cruise Company were celebrated. In 1887, for the first time a ship casted off on the largest lake of Tyrol. Today three ships are in the field: the motor vessels “Tirol” and “Stadt Innsbruck” offer modernest technology and large panoramic windows so that you can enjoy the gorgeous view on the Karwendel mountain range and the natural landscape around Lake Achensee to the fullest. The third ship is the MS Achensee, a passenger vessel with historic highlights.

The boats moor at six piers, among them Scholastika at the upper end of the lake and at the Gaisalm mountain hut, which is accessible only by foot or boat. Very popular is the swimming Christmas market on the lake (”Seeweihnacht am Achensee”) with Christmas carols on the illuminated ships and “Christmas on the MS Achensee”, the most beautiful ship of the fleet.

The traditional vessel St. Benedikt set off on its last journey on November 2, 2017. At the Seespitz pier it was symbolically passed to the Atoll Achensee leisure centre. There is also a second particular transportation in the area of Lake Achensee, the Lake Achensee Railway, a narrow-gauge cogwheel railway.
