Zell am see. The ideal resort for families and groups

Zell am See Skiing

Traditional and friendly mountain village hospitality

Zell an See is just 10 minutes drive from Kaprun, and linked by the free ski-bus, is the slightly larger and livlier, but is an equally charming, lakeside resort.

Zell Offers a unique mixture of old-world Austrian charm and modern, buzzing atmosphere, providing everything that a discerning holidaymaker could wish for.

There are interesting shops, excellent restaurants and bars, well-stocked and reasonable supermarkets (for self-caterers), banks, church services, a cinema, children's playgrounds, galleries, hairdressers, a hospital, chemists, internet providers, post offices and pretty much anything else you might ever need. But apart from the ubiquitous MacDonalds (which you might actually find handy if it happens to be the only solid meal your kids will eat), there is total respect for the preservation of local traditions and culture.

Research is ongoing !

Every Monday (in January and February) an event worth catching is the snowboard acrobatics with fire show at the Kaprun Schaufelberg. This is repeated in Zell (City Xpress) on Wednesdays.
