Beautiful mountain world

You can tackle hundreds of routes with varying difficulty levels when hiking in Zell am See and the surrounding area.

For example, the "Pinzgau walk“ – as it is lovingly known – is one of the most beautiful mountain paths in Austria. It covers a distance of 17 kilometres and goes past beautiful natural treasures and, particularly in spring and summer, offers a range of possibilities to hike in and around Zell am See.

The „Top of Salzburg“ viewing platform at 3,029 m on the Kitzsteinhorn opens up unique perspectives of impressive three thousand metre peaks on your hike – including some of the highest mountains in Austria. Visitors who prefer more relaxed alpine voyages of discovery can make use of numerous summer railways when hiking in Zell am See.

As well as lengthy hikes, climbing is the most popular activity in Zell am See, Kaprun and the surrounding area. The summits of the local Schmittenhöhe and Maiskogel mountains and the Upper Tauern National Park, with heights of up to 3,000 m, are within reach.

Try out the challenging climbing parks in the region in the heart of Salzburg. Impressive mountain formations, blooming mountain pastures and crystal-clear mountain lakes form the backdrop for adrenaline-packed tours on the cliffs. Those who prefer to enjoy the exciting climbing sport “indoors”, or also want to climb in winter, can use the boulder hall for sport climbing and the associated indoor high rope course.
