Zell am See-Kaprun
Zell am See
Lying snug between the shores of the beautiful Zeller Lake and the magnificent Schmittenhöhe, the mountain known for its most breathtaking views over the Alps, this romantic resort charms every guest that was fortunate enough to experience its natural beauty. Dating back to medieval times, Zell am See is probably the most attractive lakeside ski resort in Austria. It has a sophisticated atmosphere with plenty of shopping and dining opportunities.
For us, the magic of the place stems from the fact that this chocolate-box beautiful resort is a lively medieval town surrounded by a fabulous skiing area rather than a purpose-built ski resort with no charm, of which so many have lately sprung up.
When it comes to diversity, Zell am See is unbeatable! You can go skiing, swimming, snow-shoeing or horse-riding, play tennis, enjoy the fabulous new Alpine thermal spa, admire medieval architecture, and have a fun evening out - all in one day!
Neighbouring Kaprun, a 10 minute bus ride away, is situated at the foot of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier and although smaller, still offers a good selection of bars and restaurants in its rustic centre.
No wonder that the region continues to attract discerning visitors time and time again!
