Swimming in the Achensee - Gartenhotel Crystal

Swimming in the largest tyrolean lake

Swimming in the Achensee

Hello, my name is Hans-Peter Buttenhauser . I have been working as a caretaker at Gartenhotel Crystal from 2014. My area of ​​responsibility in the house extends from horticulture and gardening on the supervision of technical devices to any possible repairs .

I like beeing outside and in the garden - even in my leisure time I love to be in nature . One of my favourite hobbies is swimming - I love relaxing in the sun.

On free days when the weather is fine I really like to go to Achensee.


The largest tyrolean lake offers very nice swimming spots. It is located about 30 minutes (25 km) from Fügen and offers pure refreshment with its clear mountain water! On colder days I also like to make a round trip with one of the Achensee-Ships. On such a trip you can sit back and enjoy the majestic, leisurely pace of the boats across this tyrolean fjord between the Karwendel and Rofan mountains.
