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 Lake Zell, it is also close to the Hohe Tauern National Park and the magnificent Grossglockner mountain region. Most of Zell am See’s medieval centre is traffic-free with a variety of shops and attractive pavement cafés. There are magnificent walks accessed by gondola on the Schmittenhöhe mountain, and the resort offers a wide range of activities plus evening lake cruises and a weekly village festival in July and August. Just 15 minutes away by local bus, the pretty mountain village of Kaprun is an ideal place for walking and cycling, with year round skiing on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier.
Hello, my name is Susie Smith and I’m the Resort Manager of Zell am See & Kaprun. This will be my 15th season working overseas, 12 of which have been in Austria and 4 of those have been in Zell am See. I love living and working in Austria as the scenery is so beautiful and it changes so much with the seasons. It is also very clean and you never see any litter on the street. I enjoy my day off by having a hike in the mountains, followed by a well earned spritzer by the lake.
One of my favourite places in Zell am See is the north shore of the lake which gives you a gorgeous view across lake to the snow capped Kitzsteinhorn glacier.
I’m looking forward to seeing you here this summer as I’m sure that you’ll love it too!
