Lake Zell, Zell am See

4.6
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.

  • One of the perfect places to swim in the world, no pollution and safe from currents. Very clean open water and warm from June to September. There are opportunites to sail, canoe, windsurf and SUP from various points around the shore. There are "cruises" and ferries around the lake in the main holiday seasons.
  • It's a very nice lake to stay for a week!
  • Absolutely beautiful.
  • Don't go in summer..
  • Most beautiful place on earth
