It needs to be seen to be believed: Achensee, Austria

Hallo Liebe Freunde,

In continuation with my blog posts from my wonderful road trip around the German and Austrian Alps, here is a destination which is totally deserving of its own singular blog post. This is definitely a place you need to see with your own eyes to believe.

When I saw this view outside of the window of the passenger seat… I nearly lost it (in the best way).

Achensee is huge!

Achensee takes up nearly 7km of land in Tirol, Austria. Due to its large size, it can be seen from many different vantage points. There is also a variety of accommodation scattered all around the lake from campsites and caravan parks to hotels.

I couldn’t believe the colours I was seeing….

I could’ve cried from the beauty (if I wasn’t already…)

Admittedly, in the moments I was seeing this I had sunscreen in my eyes and when I took my sunglasses off to get a look at the true colours my eyes were burning. So, when I got out of the car to walk around I looked like I was crying hahaha. In reality, if my eyes weren’t weeping from burning, I may have wept because of the overwhelming beauty.


If you want to see this exact same view

If you are ever in the area and would like to see this same view, it was near a caravan park called AchenseeStüberl. It was wonderfully peaceful, with few people around at the time we were visiting (May) however, I can imagine in Summer that Achensee would be full of crowds.

A couple enjoying the view.

I hope you enjoyed these pictures! This will be my final European post for a while, stay tuned for my next post which will be from another continent.
