At Lake Achensee there are countless events organized by the local clubs, establishments and the Tourist Office Achensee.

In particular, the events surrounding the Fischergut in Pertisau are easily accessible for people with disabilities. Throughout the summer for example, there are brass concerts every two weeks. The Fischergut is also the finish for the Achensee run and the Karwendel march – two of the sports highlights of the region.

During the Advent season the Fischergut is transformed into a traditional Christmas market as part of the “Achensee Christmas on the Lake”, enticing visitors with Tirolean delicacies, musical entertainment with brass musicians and much more. The visit of the Christmas market can be combined with the swimming Christmas market on board the Achensee steamers. A leisurely cruise over the lake accompanied by music from the band “Tanzig” will get the visitors into the mood for Christmas.

Literature fans are welcome to the event “Literature on the ship” organzied by the achensee.litertour. The barrier-free ship Innsbruck is the venue for the reading of a writer every year and guarantees a wonderful ambience.

The Achensee Shipping Company organizes numerous events throughout the year. The barrier-free ships enable participation or visiting of all events for people with disabilities.

NOTICE toilets: Barrier-free toilets are available at the Fischergut, at the Gaisalm mountain hut and on board of all Achensee ships. All barrier-free toilet facilites can be found here.
