Posthotel Achenkirch

Passion for horses and the art of riding

The largest private Lipizzaner stud farm in Europe

For many, a long-cherished dream is to experience pure happiness and adventure on horseback. At our hotel in Tyrol, this dream comes true. The Posthotel Achenkirch is part of the largest private Lipizzaner stud farm in Europe. Experience these noble, powerful, and graceful animals up close or during a romantic carriage ride! Or ride through the beautiful landscape around Lake Achensee and feel this incomparable feeling of freedom on horseback.

Several Lipizzaners are kept in our light-flooded, spacious stables, which are freely accessible to you. In addition to the Lipizzaners, we also have Shetland ponies at the Posthotel Achenkirch stud farm, which our staff look after with great expertise and dedication.


Our Austrian spa resort has large stables and riding grounds as well as extensive paddocks, pastures, and lush Alpine meadows where our horses can feel as free as they would in nature. Adult horse riding lessons take place in the hotel’s own indoor riding arena (20 x 40 m) and the outdoor riding arena (40 x 60 m).

How it all started: our Lipizzaner stud farm

Director Karl J. Reiter realised a long-time riding tradition and passion with the establishment of the Posthotel stud farm. In 1975, he (a non-rider) acquired his first horses. In 1985, the first stallion arrived at the Posthotel Achenkirch from the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. More Lipizzaners came from Vienna, from the Austrian national stud farm in Piber and Hungarian breeders. The stud farm at the Posthotel Achenkirch with its nine Imperial Greys is famed as a part of Europe’s largest private Lipizzaner stud farm!
