Lake Zell is one of the most beautiful swimming lakes in the Salzburg region and has excellent water quality. 3.8 km long and 1.5 km wide, the crystal-clear lake lies in the Zell basin, surrounded by Austria's most powerful 3,000 meter peaks. You can reach Lake Zell from the 5-star superior Hotel Salzburgerhof in just 2 minutes on foot. Wonderful bathing beaches in nature guarantee refreshing relaxation during your bathing holiday in Zell am See.
Blue waves, white sails and a stiff breeze: people have always been fascinated by gliding across the water, only driven by the wind. Lake Zell is an ideal body of water to learn and perfect the maritime craft. It is not for nothing that the 'cradle of top-class sport' in Zell am See-Kaprun comes from sailing greats like Olympic champion Hans-Peter Steinacher. At the local sailing schools you can get the internationally recognized sailing license.
The brisk fleet of the Zeller See Schifffahrt invites you to attractive round trips and charter tours. With the four different charter boots 'Libelle', 'Kitzsteinhorn', 'Großglockner' and 'Schmittenhöhe' you can sail across Lake Zell. The landing stations are: Esplanade, Schüttdorf, Sonnhof, Kurpark, Bellvue and Seecamp.
You can enjoy romantic walks along the lake promenade and take the opportunity to completely circumnavigate Lake Zell with a view of azure water and the highest mountains in Austria. If you are looking for variety, you will find it with mini golf and popsicles, in the beach café or while relaxing in the sun on the cozy sunbathing lawns on a holiday by the lake in Austria. The cozy lingering in stylish restaurants, cafés and bistros is a special pleasure here.
When the sun shines over Zell am See in May, June, July, August, September and October, the music pavilion in the Elisabeth Park forms the atmospheric backdrop for the light, music and laser show "Zeller Seezauber". For around twenty minutes you feel transported to distant worlds and enjoy a fascinating spectacle with the focus on "Experience" (Tuesdays), "Happiness" (Thursdays) and "Classic" (Sundays).
