Best Things To Do in Zell Am See, Austria

by Arundhati Bhand Updated on 15 Oct 2018

With Austria’s highest mountains on one side and the gorgeous river Zell on the other, the charm of Zell am See is one that wins the heart of every traveler. While hiking is one of the most inevitable activity that you can enjoy here, there are many more things from enjoying the snow to the water and the mountains that are perfect for adults and children alike. Winter season is the best time to experience the magic of the snow. With skiing in full swing, there are many more things to do in Zell am See that you can do during this time of the year. You can view the famous Kitzsteinhorn Glacier from the cable cars, pay a visit to the Ice cave in Werfen, and enjoy a warm spa session when you want to escape from the snow.

Apart from the cold season, Zell am See sightseeing all year long is delightful. The wildlife parks, boating along the river, bicycling up the winding roads of the mountains, and hiking through the wilderness is an exhilarating experience. Zell am See is also famous for hosting the treacherous IRONMAN 70.3, so if you plan around that time, you can even be an audience to this exhaustive tournament!
