Zell am See is beautifully situated on the banks of Lake Zell. It breathes the Austrian feel with its many terraces and restaurants, and a great variety of shops. The combination of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, the surrounding mountains, and the lake make the Zell am See-Kaprun region in the Salzburger Land unique. In this region you can find the most alluring landscapes in Austria all together.
At the 3,029 meter high Kitzsteinhorn glacier you can ski until July. Those who want to combine summer and winter in one day, go ski down the glacier in the morning and dive into the crystal clear waters of the Zeller See in the afternoon. This lake is suitable to a variety of water sports. The beach at the Esplanade is within a walking distance from your apartment.
The mountains encircling Zell am See are very popular with racing cyclists, mountain bikers and hikers. Real adventurers will go, among other things, canyoning and rafting. And while walking, you can enjoy the swirling water of the age old Sigmund Thun gorge, the clear lakes of the Kaprun high mountain reservoir, or the impressive Krimml waterfalls. Absolute highlight is the Großglockner Hochalpenstrasse. With its 3,798 meters, this is the highest mountain in Austria, and it looks down on the largest glacier in the East Alps: the 9 kilometre long Pasterze.
The Golf Club Zell am See-Kaprun is situated at the foot of the Kitzsteinhorn. Perfect greens and top facilities in an tranquil atmosphere guarantee the best possible golf experience for both the professional and the novice. These courses are used for the European Tour as well.
