If you visit Lake Achensee on a warm summer's day you will see numerous kite-surfers and wind-surfers zipping along the surface of the water. The lake has some of the best wind conditions in Austria and over the decades has grown into a haven for water sports enthusiasts in Austria, Germany and other neighbouring countries. Stand-up paddle, kite-surfing, sailing and rafting are just some of the activities on offer.
The number one address for beginners keen to try out one of these sports for the first time is the Pertisau Sailing School. Located at the dock in Pertisau where the sightseeing boats stop to let passengers embark and disembark, it is just a short walk from the Seehotel Einwaller.
