    More about the activities in Zell am See

  • So what's it like?

    Zell am See has a perfect location right on Lake Zell - with the snow-capped peaks of the Hohe Tauern mountains rising up to the south. The lake draws crowds from all over the world each year to enjoy all kinds of water activities - plus there’s some superb walking in the region. Zell’s village has a bustling historic centre with pavement cafés and a great selection of shops while its central location makes it easy to visit much more of Austria.

    Relax and discover

    Local culture: Zell am See is one of Austria's most popular destinations – classed as a city not for its size but for its historic importance. The Kasterturm Tower is home to the local heritage museum and the Church of Hippolytus is the oldest building in the Pinzgau region.

    Water sports: Canyoning involves you abseiling, scrambling and swimming through waterfalls. Alternatively hold your nerve as you float down rapids on a white water rafting adventure. For more sedate experiences you could head out onto the lake in a pedalo or just enjoy a swim in the lake which reaches up to 23°C. The lidos have heated pools too - so you can go swimming even in early and late summer.

    Walking: Ramblers, strollers and hikers are spoilt for choice around Zell am See. There’s at least 83 different marked mountain trails to choose from. You can scale the Schmittenhöhe and Maiskogel on foot or via cable car and from the peak of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier you’ll have unique views of Austria’s highest mountains including the Grossglockner.

    Summer card: The Zell am See-Kaprun Summer Card is available when staying at selected hotels. There’s a wide range of benefits to help you get the most out of the region including access to public lidos, boat trips and cable cars around the mountains.

    Evening atmosphere: The village comes alive at night. There are lots of popular bars open for drinking and dancing into the early hours or enjoying a relaxing glass of wine on the terrace. During July and August, the weekly Stadtfest lets you get a flavour of the local culture.

    Zell am See Discovery: Make the most of your time in Austria with the Zell am See Discovery package. Stay at the Hotel Fischerwirt and enjoy trips to Austria’s highest waterfalls and Salzburg. You’ll also pop over the border to Berchtesgaden in Germany – home to Hitler’s famous Eagles’ Nest. Book before 29th of April 2015.

    Ratings

    With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

    Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.
