Zell am See
Surrounded by mountains and nestled in the green valley landscape, the town of Zell am See lies on the banks of Lake Zell in Pinzgau in the Salzburg region. Enjoy a beautiful panorama with views of the Steinernes Meer, Kitzsteinhorn and the Pinzgau grass mountains while taking in the calm of the crystal clear lake.
Winter: skiing and more
It’s only a few steps to the entrance to the Schmittenhöhe ski region where 77 km of perfectly prepared slopes attract skiers and snowboarders. Yet there are also numerous options available to winter sports enthusiasts away from the slopes; those who prefer it more relaxed can enjoy a winter hike, tobogganing or the many traditional events, whereas party animals can take full advantage of the après-ski and have fun into the early hours.
Summer: from the lake to the ski slopes
A boat trip or dip in the cool water are only a few minutes away, as the Fischerwirt Hotel is located in the heart of the town and within sight of the lakeside. Enjoy a hike in the beautiful scenery or take a gentle bike ride around the lake. There are several nearby excursion destinations waiting to be discovered, and the active cultural scene and night life also make Zell am See the perfect destination for your summer holiday. For anyone still wanting to enjoy a spot of skiing during the warm months, the nearby Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski region offers the ideal conditions for some slope action in the sunshine.
