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.

Ideally located on the edge of the central pedestrian area of Zell am See’s medieval old town and only a short walk from the City Xpress gondola, the traditional Fischerwirt offers a home-from-home atmosphere and friendly personal service. Guests can use the modern leisure area at the interconnected Romantik-Hotel (pay locally) or use the hotel’s own small leisure area.
Proud of its unique position by the lake with large private gardens and bathing lawns, the family-owned Seevilla Freiberg is located just a 5 minute lakeside stroll from the pedestrianised old town and offers rooms with scenic lake view as well as a modern and comfortable atmosphere.
