Zell am See is one of the most scenic and well-loved ‘lakes and mountains’ resorts in Austria. Beautifully located, directly on the shores of the Zeller lake, Zell lies next to the Hohe Tauern National Park and the magnificent Grossglockner mountain region.
The lake is popular with water-sports enthusiasts, offering an excellent choice for those who enjoy sports and activities, including lake cruises, rowing, water skiing and t's also a fabulous setting for a swim.
There are also some beautiful walks along the lakeside and from the little village of Thumersbach, on the far side of the lake, there are superb views across the water.
Several cable cars and chairlifts offer easy access to the mountains to enjoy some lovely ridge walks, including the famous 'View of 200 peaks' from the Schmittenhöhe.
The village of Zell has a beautiful, historic centre with a bustling, pedestrianised area, perfect for browsing the variety of shops and pavement cafés.
