A pristine lake fed by the glacier of the Rofan mountains. The Rofan seilbahn is within a hiking distance and is a good spot to stay and hike the alps and the famous eagle trail.

It's a very good place to go skiing if you want it both ways. They have easier and more relaxing slopes and also challenging ones. It's very well kept and there were a lot of learning programs for both children and adults.

We did a wonderful trip on the miniature railway from down below right to the end at Lake Achensee; what a feat of engineering, all those years ago. Do take your cameras! Amazing gradients with rack and pinion system

There were families with small children, they were catered to very well at the restaurant however I don't believe they have any activity of the sort.
