About Zell am See - Within the shadow of the beautiful Hohe Tauern National Park, Zell am See is a buzzy, atmospheric winter and summer resort with sensational views, nearby glacier skiing and scenic lake, and, with its classic 19th-century architecture and mountain backdrop, the area is very much an all year round favourite. From the town centre it’s easy to grab the CityXpress gondola up the 2000m Schmittenhöhe mountain, where there are wide, scenic pistes and tree-lined runs offering variety for skiers and plenty of mountain huts. During the summer, walkers can enjoy a range of easy to challenging trails. Thanks to its friendly slopes, a traffic-free centre and plenty of non-ski activities, Zell am See is a great choice for families and intermediate skiers. The car-free town centre has a picture-postcard feel about it, with quaint cafés and restaurants alive with both locals and tourists. During the height of winter the lake often freezes over, enabling one to walk from one side to the other. Zell am See is part of the Europa Sport Region which includes the neighbouring glacier resort of Kaprun, which is easily accessible by local ski bus. The Zell area has 59 runs with 136 kms of piste. Set at the foot of the breathtaking 3203m Kitzsteinhorn Glacier, Kaprun also offers an excellent range of pistes, including those at high altitude with guaranteed snow. The views from the glacier at Kaprun are impressive, with the lake, Zell am See and the highest mountain in Austria all visible. Salzburg is easily reached either by train direct from Zell am See or by car in 75 minutes. A must for those with a car is the scenic and thrilling drive up the Grossglockner High Alpine Road.
