Mountain Ski Area
Take a cable car to the summit of Schmittenhohe on the eastern edge of the Alps for a sweeping view of the surrounding areas and lakes below. Ski and snowboard down the Funslope, including tunnels, waves, and steep curves, and ride back up to the summit on the cable car in cabins designed by the Porsche Design Studio. Race a friend down the Skimovie course where cameras will track your movements and measure precise time, using video analysis to determine who is the fastest and who has the best style. If you have little ones, be sure to check out the children's zone, which has child-themed pistes and chairlifts with closure mechanisms specifically designed to keep children safe. Put Schmittenhohe at the forefront of your travel plans using our Zell am See vacation route planner.

  • Beautiful mountain with fantastic views, great eastern shore in several directions, it took about 4 hours back down to Zell am See from the top.

  • We are driven by cable car up to the mittelstation and run approximately 2 hours down! Halfway is a small meadow where you can drink! The routes are well signposted and well with sensible shoes also for untrained hikers (such as I) to create! It runs mostly through forests where it is then also shady!

  • Heights promenade a must: a super view of the Tauern and the steinernes Meer, with children a real experience.

Where to stay in Zell am See

Zell am See has at its heart a massive and beautifully calm lake and attracts a big tourist crowd all through the year. For lower prices, look for rooms in pensions or accommodations outside of the resort town. Otherwise, upscale hotels line the lake, offering rooms with panoramic views. Most hotel prices include breakfast, but can provide a discount if you opt out.
