  Recreation and relaxation in Zell am See  

Not for nothing, this beautiful town is named “Pearl of the Alps”. Zell am See offers in summer as well as in the winter, relaxation and recreation for every age group.

In winter

For the sport ambitioned tourist: free cross-country skiing on well prepared ski-tracks, alpine skiing on superb slopes for beginners, advanced and experts, Tandem parachute jumping at the small Zeller airport, ice-skating on the frozen lake or in the ice stadium, tobogganing at night on lit up tobogganing runs, etc…..

Zell am See also offers something for your relaxation in the winter: long walks around or across the frozen lake and soaking up the sun (the lake has the biggest frozen surface in comparison to all other lakes in Austria), a hot air balloon ride, a romantic sleigh ride in the beautiful winter scenery, or a visit to the Krimmler Waterfalls (the biggest in Europe) who are even more impressive in the winter because the mighty cascading waters are intermingled with snow and ice, showing a unique spectacle of nature.

There are various possibilities of recreation and relaxation at Freizeitzentrum Zell am See oder at the newly built Tauern Spa Kaprun.

In summer

Ample and well described cycle- and hiking tracks offer the cyclist and hiker a wide range of choices. On many of the pathways cosy taverns and lodges offer plain fare and local dishes, which are hard to resist and should be tried!
