A perfect trio: glacier, mountain & lake
Situated in the “Salzburger Land” between glacier, mountain and lake, the towns of Kaprun and Zell am See offer the best of the Alps: all year round you will find a variety of activities for sports and relaxation. Excellent winter sports with snow-guarantee, glaciers and a breathtaking mountain landscape in winter. Hundreds of kilometres of spectacular signposted hiking trails, mountain paths are waiting for you in summer. Dive into the bathing pleasure of the crystal clear Zeller Lake. Or how about a round of golf on the 36 hole greens of the Zell am See-Kaprun Golf Club? The region is a unique adventure playground!
Greetings from the summit at 3.000m
There’s no question: the Kitzsteinhorn, is an impressive, striking peak in Tauern (and the only 3,000-metre peak in Salzburger Land). Holidaymakers have all-year-round access to this alpine adventure world of the high mountains. The panoramic mountain Schmittenhöhe attracts hikers & winter sports enthusiasts. The Maiskogel is the family mountain of the region – with many attractions such as the all-year toboggan run “Alpine Coaster Maisi Flitzer”. Also worth a trip are the high mountain reservoirs of Kaprun, the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, the Hohe Tauern National Park, the panoramic platform TOP OF SALZBURG, Kaprun Castle, the Elisabeth Chapel “Sisi Chapel” on the Schmittenhöhe, the lidos of Zell am See-Kaprun, museums and countless other attractions in Salzburg Land.
