Zell am See-Kaprun, in the heart of the Austrian Alps, is a nature and holiday paradise par excellence. All kinds of holiday wishes come true at the base of the 3,203-metre high Kitzsteinhorn and around the crystal-clear Lake Zell at the edge of the Hohe Tauern National Park.
If you appreciate variety, you will love Zell am See-Kaprun: The two local mountains – Schmittenhöhe and Kitzsteinhorn with Maiskogel – offer plenty of adventure and variety. The region’s prominent excursion destinations include “Top of Salzburg“ in Gipfelwelt 3000 with cinema at the Kitzsteinhorn, the National Park Gallery and Ice Arena, the TAUERN SPA – one of the most modern wellness oases in the Alps –, the Kaprun High Mountain Reservoirs, the listed Grossglockner High Alpine Road and the Sigmund Thun Gorge. The water of Lake Zell is of drinking water quality and invites to relaxing days at the lidos, to a panorama tour on the MS Schmittenhöhe and many sporty activities. On the new “guestbook“ theme trail in Thumersbach, you hike on the tracks of famous personalities who used to have close ties with Zell am See-Kaprun. Interesting stories are also told during the new digital “Local Guide“ tour which can be taken with the help of your smartphone. Fantastic events – from IRONMAN 70.3 to the amazing “Lake Zell Magic“ – fill the summer event calendar.
