Gold Mine ZillertalIn the mine you can feel how the inside of the mountain lives and experience, in an impressive multi-media presentation, the 350 year culture of this almost forgotten industry. Get an impression of the working conditions of days gone by, the lifestyle and social lives.
AchenseeAchensee is Tyrol's largest lake - clear as glass and emerald green; a fiord between the Karwendel and Rofan Mountains. A walk around the Achensee lake is well worth it and if you'd like to make the tour a little bit shorter, a ship will take you to the opposite shore.
