(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.

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.

  • The lake is the best thing in the town. Fantastic few from mountain! Worth seeing! We were in winter but by summer i guess it looks fantastic. 
  • Pretty nice shops with friendly vendors. Inexpensive to very expensive-everything included. The begging young women are very intrusive are a little annoying.
