Summer holidays in Zell am See

Hiking and biking in the Hohe Tauern National Park

Do you want to enjoy a range of activities or just have a break from everyday life – you can do both during your summer holiday in Zell am See-Kaprun at the Guesthouse Schmittental! The diversity of the region is apparent in the sparkling Lake Zell, the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, idyllic alpine meadows and an imposing mountain landscape in the region around the Großglockner mountain. We offer a variety of sports with the extensive cycling and hiking trails, climbing gardens, archery courses, riding stables, swimming pools and lakes. The two 18-hole "Schmittenhöhe" and "Kitzsteinhorn" golf courses at the Zell am See-Kaprun golf club provide a wonderful combination of natural surroundings and sports and is only 5 km away from us.

Crystal clear and blue, the water of Lake Zell dazzles in the summer sun and invites you to cool off on a hot day with a wonderfully fresh dip. The water of the natural lake reaches c. 23° C, and not only offers the most enjoyable swimming pleasure, it is also ideal for pedal boating, sailing, windsurfing and water-skiing.

Motorbike tour on the highest mountain in Austria!

The Guesthouse Schmittental in Zell am See is also the starting point for many fabulous motorcycle tours, such as the Großglockner, and therefore the perfect accommodation for your motorcycle holiday in the Salzburg region. We do, of course, provide a covered motorbike parking space.
