Zell am See
Regardless of the season, Zell am See always offers something special
100 years ago Zell am See was a rather unknown market village. Then the railway was built and Zell became an important station. The village grew and was declared as a city in 1928. Today, the lovely town at lake Zell has almost 10,000 inhabitants. Because of its location and the lake, Zell am See has been a “Luftkurort” since 1961. This means that people with asthma and other lung related health issues come here to feel better. Not only the air around the town but also the water of Lake Zell is extraordinarily clean and pure. Therefore, the water of the lake is classified as drinking water.
The idyllic mountain village Zell lies in the middle of the Pinzgauer valley and is situated 758m above sea level. The landscape does not only impress by the beautiful surrounding mountains and the lake Zell but also by the rivers Saalach and Salzach that run through it.
Take a stroll through winding alleys, visit the flea market, the museum or the weekly market on the town square and enjoy the lively vibe of the town. Enjoy a boat trip or a swim in the lake and enjoy the tranquility. Zell am See-Kaprun is also renowned for its diverse cycling paths. The offer ranges from short, flat tours to challenging mountain ascents and downhill trails.
