Embedded between the peaks of the Karwendel and Rofan mountains, seeming like a fjord, lies Tyrol's biggest lake. More than 500 kilometers of hiking trails lead you into the landscapes around the deep blue Achen Lake. As the whim takes you, you can enjoy the nature on a moderate walk in the flat valley or start a mighty peak ascent. The mountain experience doesn't always have to be paid with your sweat. The Rofan cable car in Maurach and also the Karwendel cable way in Pertisau enable a comfortable way up. From the upper terminus you can reach beautiful huts and shielings within two hours.
The national park Karwendel starts at the Achen Lake western waterfront. It's the biggest combined preservation area in the northern Chalk Alps, which is 920 square-kilometers wide and spreads all the way to Bavaria. Here hikers have the possibilities to enjoy the mountains off the beaten paths with all their sequestered beauty.

For experienced hikers, this tour is easy to commit. From the tollbooth at the entrance of the Karwendeltäler you walk on the toll road in the direction of Pletzachalm to the foot of the Feilkopf, where a small parking lot is on the left. Here, the trail ascends first through Jungwald, then clear to the forest road, where you come right to the managed Feilalm. From the pasture you follow the path to the summit.
