Holidays in Zell am See

A good tip is to book a 'Zell am See Sommer Karte', which gives access to the cable cars up to the mountains, to dams, waterfalls and hiking trails high up in the Alps with an incredibly beautiful view. Some hotels even have a partnership with Zell am See Sommer Karte, so remember to ask for it when booking accommodation.

You must of course have something good to eat and drink on holiday, and you get that in here. Austrian cuisine varies from region to region, and here in the Alps it is especially the herbs that stand out. You can even go on a 'herb walk' where you will learn about the many herbs and plants that grow wild in the heights.

Of course, there are also lots of nice beers and wines - and not least sweet things that Austria is so famous for.

Iron man or woman

In early September, you can be extra active when the big Ironman competition kicks off. It is a classic triathlon with three disciplines, and Zell am See sends participants out on 1,9 kilometers of swimming in the lake, 90 kilometers of cycling in the beautiful surroundings and 21 kilometers of running afterwards.

It is half an Ironman distance and it is possible to participate even if you are not a professional. Of course, one can also just cheer on the others.

Three times a week there is a fireworks show over the lake, and the show varies in theme from time to time. It's free to attend, and it naturally attracts large crowds. It's a perfect way to shoot off a lovely alpine day.
