Highly recommended to take the cable car to the top and descend by foot. There are several panoramic ways for a 1,5 hour walk to 6 hours across the mountains. There are some nice small restaurants along the way hidden in the Alps. Fabulous!

Easy to find, easy to get tickets (if not massively cheap) to then have a great scenic trip up the mountain with numerous hiking trails around Zwoelferkopf with a lovely restaurant / pub for refreshments.

the cable car itself is straightforward and no wonder- when you get up to the top you are surrounded by the most amazing panorama and you have plenty of opportunity for walks

Another way to see Achensee from high ground. I started with Rofan which gave one portion of the lake. Karwendel gives a nice side view of it. However, I did not feel it as high as Rofan. It is a relaxed ride. There are several...More
