Both mountain bikers and golfers like to visit Achenkirch. One of the Lake Achensee golf courses can be found just above the village on a charming plateau. The lake is accessible from all sides, but it is also known for its cool temperatures as it is fed by crystal-clear mountain brooks. Water fun, however, can be enjoyed in a covered swimming area with pleasant temperatures. Around the lake there are many other sports opportunities: tennis, squash, horseback riding, sailing, surfing, inline skating, jogging, Nordic walking and lots more.
