In the evening, you definitely will not be bored, there have been plenty of restaurants and cafes.
The Ski resort of Achensee is located in beautiful surroundings and consists of the villages Maurach, Pertisau, Eben and Achenkirch. The villages are located around the lake and together form the resort. This resort has good nightlife and some great pistes! So, for both true ski fanatics and those more interested in the apres-ski, there is plenty to enjoy here.
There are also many cross country tracks for those interested! On the sunny slopes of the Zwölferkopf at Pertisau there is 12 km (8 ml) of pistes varying in difficulty and in the Rofan area near Maurach there is another 14 km (9 ml) of pistes waiting to be used.
