Zell am See is one of Austria’s most popular holiday destinations. Situated on a beautiful lake and surrounded by dramatic glacial mountains Zell has the unique advantage of two excellent tourist seasons. A major ski resort during the Winter months with a fabulous range of pistes for all levels and with skiing on the 3000 meter high Kitzseinhorn glacier virtually year round snow! And in summer, in addition to the traditional mountain activities of hill walking, mountain climbing, mountain biking on the endless trails etc, Zell am See also offers all water sports on the lake. It also boasts two 18 hole championship courses, set in the most stunning alpine surroundings. Zell am See also has a vast choice of restaurants, bars and mountain restaurants, ranging from internationally renowned gourmet restaurants or relaxed but stylish restaurant / bars through to rustic mountain huts serving local specialities in a cosy informal atmosphere.
Zell am See is extremely active in entertaining its guests with a varied programme of festivals, shows, events, ensuring there is never a dull moment for its visitors. This double season and innovative and highly professional tourist board ensures Zell’s growing popularity as a tourist resort with 1,357,000 guest nights in 2011.
Another contributing factor to this success is the proximity of two international airports; Salzburg is an hour’s drive away and Munich two hours fourty minutes, ensuring quick and easy access from all international airports.
