Summer holiday
in Zell am See


Summer, sun, Zell am See ...

When only green pastures dominate on the mountains all around and only the Kitzsteinhorn is snow-covered, the summer begins in Zell am See. The interplay of glacier and lake makes the region all the more attractive.

Varied vacation

In late spring you can have an early morning ski run on the glacier, at noon enjoy the warm sun, in front of one of the mountain restaurants and finally in the valley floor, jump into the wonderfully clear Zeller Lake. Now that’s what I call variety. Or you can try paddle boarding around the lake.
