The European Sports-Region of Zell am See - Kaprun is a paradise for athletes and active holiday-makers as well as for gourmets. The two neighboring resorts fit together hand in glove, like a finely tuned dance team where both partners have learned to subtley compliment each other for the best possible performance.
Kaprun village is situated in the heart of the Salzburg Region of Austria, approximately 80km from Salzburg which has a very convenient and well serviced international airport. What makes Kaprun so special is its impressive setting, nestled at the foot of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier in the midst of the majestic Hohe Tauern mountain range.
Kaprun is a traditional Austrian village and on the surface puts on a quieter face than does Zell am See, partly because it is much smaller in scale. However, its laid-back atmosphere sets a more relaxing pace, and the village common gives it the air of a small New England college town.
The 'Optimum' Sports Centre is the pride of the village, with its fantastic facilities. There’s plenty of off piste action from lively bars and discos to the more traditional rustic Stubes. The ‘Optimum’ will upgrade your lift pass to a ‘swim and ski’ pass giving you unlimited entrance to the indoor/outdoor pool and steam room. There is also ice skating, bowling, night skiing and tobogganing.
Kaprun has recently completed a new Alpine Center at the top of the old Gletscherbahn. Interactive map of Kaprun village
Zell am See
Built in the middle ages, Zell am See is a 20 minute drive away from Kaprun. It is a year round resort because of it’s idyllic setting on a flat semicircular piece of land that juts into a delicious alpine lake that has been squeezed from the mountains ringing the shore. Cream-colored buildings huddle around the well-preserved 13th-century church of St. Hippolyt, and the Vogtturm (city tower) which dominate Zell’s skyline, giving it the air of a medieval mountain town rather than a bustling ski village.
One could wander for hours through the town’s winding streets and have no trouble envisioning merchants and traders from bygone days going about their business.
Today the streets of Zell are still lined with unpretentious shops—sport stores, well-stocked markets, intriguing crafts shops. You’ll also find cozy cafes, gasthauses and restaurants filled with locals and tourists alike. Zell am See, with a year-round population of almost 10,000, has honed the fine art of balancing the fantasy sought by tourists with the real needs of its citizens.
After dark, Zell am See offers a wide variety of bars and night clubs for all tastes, from the lively and appropriately named Crazy Daisy (Irish Daisy) to the more serene atmosphere of the cafes overlooking the lake. It is a joy to walk around and soak up it’s cosmopolitan atmosphere. Interactive map of Zell town
