There's nothing quite as exhilarating as waking up, pulling the curtains, and seeing an Alpine lake spread before you.
Zell am see is the capital of the Zell am see district in the Austrian state of Salzburg. It is the quintessential Austrian resort, a compact town of picture-postcard perfection, with a lake on one side and an impressive mountain hinterland on the other.
The powdery, sparkling white snow on Kitzsteinhorn, Schmittenhöhe and Maiskogel not only excites beginners in winter sports, even old hands at skiing and boarding will be suitably impressed with the total of 138 kilometers of pistes offering ideal terrains for testing out one's limits.
The surface of Lake Zell comprises more than 4.5 square kilometers - the perfect place for lacing up your skates. Whether you prefer ice skating, ice hockey, or curling, the sparkling, frozen surface of Lake Zell invites you to indulge in all kinds of sporting activities and slippery fun. Conquer the ice!

Water makes a perfect holiday, and Zell am see has water in abundance with the surprisingly warm ripples of its mountain lake, and higher up, the year-round snows of its glacier.

Wake up in your spa hotel to a double dose of sunlight, from above and also from the shimmering reflection in the lake.
