Glide over the water seemingly weightlessly and without effort, with the scent of the mountain air in your nose and the sun on your face – what a magnificent feeling! You can sample this feeling as a guest of the Hotel Post am See: Stephan Kobinger would be happy to take you on a short sailing tour on the “Stefanie” – a small cabin cruiser of the surprise class.
If you prefer to take the rudder yourself, you will find several businesses around the lake offering dinghies and yachts for hire. To sail on the Achensee you must have a certificate, either the Austrian “A-Schein” or a German “Sportsbootschein See”, and you will need to pay a fee for a permit from the lake authorities, which you can get in the Bootshaus Pertisau.
If you have your own sailing boat and want to take advantage of the excellent wind conditions on the Achensee, you will be pleased to know that the Hotel Post also has a slip to get your boat safely into the water. The hotel's own jetty makes it easy for guests to get in and out of the water.
