Zell am See Accommodations

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!

Zell am see is a diversified winter paradise and one of the most important and significant Austrian ski resorts. It is a mesmerizing family lakeside resort that exudes brilliant old world charm through its picture perfect landscape and also plays the part of brilliant host to an array of winter sports activities.

Accommodations at Zell am See are a diverse medley of unabashedly plush vacation rentals, chalets, villas and apartment rentals that offer stunning views of the natural grandeur of the town; and for budget conscious clients there is lodging and accommodation tucked away in the quaint countryside.

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. Zeller Lake and the abundant local mountains make this a paradise for skiers, boarders, hikers, cyclists and nature lovers.

Wake up in your spa hotel to a double dose of sunlight, from above and also from the shimmering reflection in the lake. You may feel like diving straight in, and you're most welcome to, and you'll get a very pleasant surprise, as in the summer the water reaches temperatures in the mid 20s°C, - as warm as the Mediterranean.

Owner Direct Vacation Rentals can offer you accommodations, villa rentals, chalet rentals and apartment rentals within easy access to the hub of the old town and all its amenities. Zell am see is famously known as a popular vacation stop, not just for skiing, but also for its nightlife. It's generally considered a party town.

Zell am see has been consistently popular with Europeans, and its nightlife is a big part of the reason why they come back, year after year.
