With us you have an incredibly diverse range of options. If you swim in Lake Zell in summer, slide across the lake on water skiing or by boat, then you can still ski on the Kitzsteinhorn. The combination of glacier, mountain and lake is unique.
The best way to start the hike is right outside the front door on the Schmittenhöhe. With the gondola you cover the first 1,000 m. You will only sit still on your summer vacation, if you really want to. Swing your golf club again at the Zell am See Golf Club or optimize your climbing skills.
