Gotthilf Fischer, famous for its Fisher Choirs, inaugurated in 2006 on the largest lake of Tyrol the Road of Songs (Strasse der Lieder). At his and some locals celebrities' suggestion, on a course of 2 km between Seespitz and Buchau - piers of the Achensee Shipping - 12 stations with popular folk songs were established along the theme trail.
The design of the single stations was planned by Mag. Peter Schuh, diocese architect from Salzburg. His concept was realised by the smithy Guggenberger at Kramsach in stone and metal, famous for the Cemetery Museum Kramsach, the quirkiest museum of Tyrol, in which historic grave crosses with bizarre and interesting inscriptions are gathered.
Along the Road of Songs, music becomes the language that reunites all the people with the greatest musical pieces of the German treasury of songs. Here at Lake Achensee, the beauty of music meets the beauty of nature. The trail is also suitable for wheelchairs and prams.
