Zell am See-Kaprun in the state of Salzburg: a highlight all year round

Between glacier, lake and casino: a holiday in Zell am See-Kaprun

In the centre of the state of Salzburg lies the holiday region of Zell am See-Kaprun. Surrounded by high mountains crowned with glaciers, the region at the picturesque Lake Zell is good for mountain holidays and relaxation the whole year round. Bathing, skiing almost the whole year through, hiking, biking and noisy nights in the casino – a casino break in Zell am See offers all of this and more.

Zell am See-Kaprun with its unique location has long since earned a worldwide reputation: the nature appears extraordinary and diverse, from the large lake, mountain meadows and craggy cliffs to the eternal ice at over 3,000 metres. From October to June, you can enjoy skiing at the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, a luxury which is rarely found in Austria. The view is also magnificent: from the summit, more than 30 Alpine peaks beyond the 3,000 metre mark move into view.

Zell am See has been a climatic spa since 1961. Not just the air but also the water of the crystal-clear Lake Zell is characterised by a special purity. Enjoy the healthy climate during activities in this mountainous world and then start your casino experience.

Winter holidays in Zell am See-Kaprun

The winter sports region of Zell am See-Kaprun offers more than 138 kilometres of pistes for skiing on the Schmitten, the Kitzsteinhorn and the Maiskogel. On the glacier Kitzsteinhorn there is even a guarantee of snow from early autumn through into the summer. With skis or boards, on piste or off piste, winter sports enthusiasts come without fail at their own expense. Winter can also be enjoyed in various ways away from the ski pistes. Ski tourers have opportunities at every level: beginners start on the Maiskogel, advanced skiers enjoy the routes on the Kitzsteinhorn. By contrast, there is a somewhat more comfortable winter hike around Lake See which is full of panoramas or cross-country skiing on the 40 kilometres of loipes in Zell am See-Kaprun. Even the frozen lake has its own attraction: what would it be like to ice-skate or snow-kite? Your winter holiday is topped off with a sledge ride, either during the day or by moonlight.

Snowy adventures during the summer

Thanks to the Ice Arena, you can also plunge into the cooling snow during summer. At over 3,000 metres, a unique world of experience awaits you with a snowy beach, sun loungers, slides, a magic carpet and a safe glacial trail.

Summer holidays in Zell am See-Kaprun

In summer, nature opens up various hiking routes. Day-trippers can use one of the cable cars for the ascent, for example to the top of the Kitzsteinhorn. For bikers, the choice ranges from short, flat routes to demanding mountain tours, while golfers can treasure the Zell am See-Kaprun golf club with its 36 greens. A summer’s day at the lake also provides a variety of possibilities, from swimming and boat trips to water sports.

You will relax and be pampered the Tauern Spa, which offers water and wellness experiences on its 20,000 square metres.

Excursions, lake and mountain

From the lakeside promenade you can reach the 2,000 metre high Schmittenhöhe in the blink of an eye, the small town’s local mountain: in summer, an inviting hiking and relaxation region, in winter, a popular ski resort. Other excursion destinations like the Großglocknerstraße, the Hohe Tauern National Park, the Krimml Waterfalls or Kaprun and its castle are also not far away.

Despite its modest size, you can enjoy the urban flair of Zell am See while shopping in the numerous shops and at the weekly market. Over 100 restaurants satisfy the craving for indulgence, from typical civilian cuisine to international culinary coups.
