Achensee and Karwendel Silver Region

The area of Lake Achensee and the Karwendel, with the main town called Schwaz, have been characterised for centuries by mining.

Surrounded by the wild romantic Karwendel Mountains, this area invites to spend relaxing holidays. The offer is wide and includes a visit to a distillery and to the Zeiss Planetarium as well as a navigation on Lake Achensee. Also the Schwaz Silver Mine is accessible: The journey starts with an 800 m long train ride down into the tunnel. In cold months, you can choose between the ski slopes on Mt. Rofan and Mt. Kellerjoch, or you go cross-country skiing around Lake Achensee.
