Unforgettable holidays with breath-taking viewsZell am See is a true pearl of the Alps and ensures nobody leaves unimpressed.

Of course, you can also strap on the skis and explore this beautiful part of the world in an unforgettable way, with Zell am See and Kaprun being famous for their renowned descents. Would you like to become part of this enchanting winter wonderland? Become acquainted with the Residence Schönblick near the Areitbahn, directly between the lake and mountain, situated away from the hustle and bustle.

Zell am See and the equally famous neighbouring village of Kaprun offer winter sports enthusiasts development and fun at a high level. Snow-sure slopes on the glacier, sunny descents with a beautiful view on the Schmittenhöhe and a cosy family ski area with a 7km long valley descent on the Maiskogel are just some of the highlights. The area offers an illuminated slope for even more slope magic at night (3 nights/week). The ski show, called SnowSpectacle, where ski schools show their jumps and tricks at the City Xpress valley station, is particularly recommended on Wednesday evenings (admission free, from 8pm). In addition to excellent skiing and snowboarding facilities, there are also plenty of opportunities for hikers and cross-country skiers. Other popular winter activities include snow-shoeing, tobogganing, skating, ice skating, horse riding and even Nordic walking.
Younger and more active people are particularly attracted to the area as there is a lot to experience here other than on the slopes. The town is very lively all year round and offers entertainment in the form of a cinema, swimming pool, fitness room, toboggan run and, of course, extensive après-ski locations, of which the "Crazy Daisy" and the "Pinzgauer Diele" are the most popular. Not to mention the comfort on and off the slopes: There is a huge selection of mountain huts and restaurants. The surrounding villages also have a cheerful and cosy après-ski atmosphere. Here you can enjoy life to the full.
Zell am See enchants the visitor above all with the unique scenic beauty of its surroundings. The various mountain ranges line up behind the open, wide valley like in an Alpine picture book. The highest of them are right next door: at the Kitzsteinhorn next to Kaprun you can even ski on the glacier, resulting in it being ski season here nearly all year round. Also sightseeing attractions and cultural events are not to be missed out here. For example, a visit to Kaprun Castle is worthwhile. With a valid ski pass, the ski bus takes you quickly and free of charge from mountain to mountain, but can also be used for an occasional cultural trip.
