Lakeside Austrian holidays full of variety at the Salzburgerhof

Glacier, mountain, and lake in a charming symbiosis

Zell am See in the heart of the Pinzgau region and right on the edge of the Hohe Tauern National Park offers a wide range of possibilities throughout the year that is as rich in its different facets as nature itself. Award-winning restaurants, an attractive cultural programme, and tourist infrastructure of an international level make Austrian holidays by the lake here very attractive. The romantic pedestrian area with its fine shopping possibilities, a refreshing dip in the lake, or a boat trip on the crystal clear Zell Lake are all ways of spending a successful summer afternoon. In the evening you can see if luck is on your side, with a visit to the new casino.

Where winter is still winter

The mountain town of Zell am See is known around the world as an idyllic paradise for winter sports enthusiasts. The largest ski region in Austria and the only glacier ski region in Salzburg await you on a winter holiday. As well as skiing, you can also enjoy countless other winter sports activities such as cross-country skiing, toboganning, ice skating and snow shoe hiking in a wonderful landscape.

Diverse mountain town in the heart of the Alps

You can enjoy romantic walks along the lake promenade and take the opportunity to completely circumnavigate Lake Zell with views of the azure water and the highest mountains in Austria. If you are looking for a change of pace, you will find it in mini golf, in the Grand Café or while relaxing in the sun on the secluded sunbathing lawn on a holiday by the lake in Austria.

The new casino on the lake promenade right next to the Grand Hotel Zell am See ****s  - which like the Salzburgerhof is owned by the Holleis family - is as a glamorous place of upscale entertainment. Across an area of 1,000 m² with views of the lake terrace and as far as the Kitzsteinhorn, you can dare to play international games such as roulette, blackjack and poker - and enjoy the dignified atmosphere.

The unique nature of Austria

Zell am See is known around the world as one of the most special winter sports resorts. The roots of the small town go back to the Bronze Age. It was once the crossroads of trade routes during the time of the Romans and migrations. Today, Zell am See in Austria is a place to rest and relax. In the heart of the Alps, at an altitude of about 750 m, the Salzburgerhof is only 100 km south of Salzburg and 30 km north of the Großglockner. A 5-star hotel in Austria that invites you to enjoy quiet hours and active days.

The local mountain of Zell am See is the Schmittenhöhe with a height of 1,965 m. It was a popular excursion destination for Empress Elisabeth (Sissi) and she climbed it regularly. The traces of the beautiful empress can still be traced in the Elisabeth Chapel today. The idyllic hiking trails with their wide alpine pastures and forested regions offer the perfect opportunity to fill your lungs with soothing mountain air.

In Zell am See you will find glaciers, mountains and historic town centres for a multifaceted holiday. Those who enjoy wanderlust will enjoy unique scenery that they will never want to do without. Experience unique hiking tours on the Kitzsteinhorn or Maiskogel, which can also be comfortably conquered by cable car. Particularly adventurous guests can conquer the peaks on their mountain bikes and go down on freeride trails. Zell am See becomes a real wonderland in winter. Over 138 kilometres of groomed slopes offer plenty of space for passionate skiers of all ages to enjoy lots of winter sports action.
