Winter activities off the slopes

Tobogganing, ice skating and ski touring!

The snow-covered winter landscape and the mountain peaks glittering in the sunlight is a sight that will lure any "couch potato" out into the fresh mountain air. So, if you don’t feel like fun on the slopes or mountain pursuits, you can enjoy the wide range of sports and leisure facilities that a winter holiday in Zell am See can offer off the piste.



Anyone can do it, and fun for the whole family is guaranteed: tobogganing! Enjoy a rapid descent down the 1.5 km long Köhlergraben toboggan run, which also passes alongside our guesthouse, or a fun toboggan ride on the 2 km Guggenbichlbahn. Both runs are illuminated in the evening.

Ice skating on Lake Zell

Ice skating on Lake Zell

If the temperatures in winter remain below zero for a longer period, a layer of ice forms on Lake Zell – perfect for ice skating, a fun winter activity for young and old alike! And if the ice isn’t thick enough, the ice rink in Zell am See is a wonderful alternative.

Ski touring

Ski touring

An excellent way of exploring the mountains of the Hohe Tauern National Park is on touring skis, and we would recommend the special routes on the Kitzsteinhorn mountain and the beginner ski tour on the Ronachkopf mountain in Thumersbach. All ski mountaineers will be rewarded with fantastic panoramic views and descents on virgin slopes
