Lake Zell, Zell am See
(4.6/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Nestled within the Austrian Alps, Lake Zell offers you a host of opportunities for water activities, relaxation, and exploring nature. Visit the lake, fed and maintained by mountain streams, and discover the lush forested landscape surrounding it, including the small town of Zell am See. Rent a paddleboard or some inflatables to relax on the water, or simply hit the beach. All the while, you'll be surrounded by panoramic mountain scenery, including the snow-capped Kitzsteinhorn glacier and rugged alpine foothills. Alternatively, join a boat trip for a leisurely tour of the area, or hop aboard a river-rafting experience for a taste of the crashing Salzach River.
