Winter in Zell am See

Zell am See-Kaprun is a perfect region for outdoor sporting activities and recreation in the snowy countryside – with our house in the midst of it all! Your boundless fun on the slopes begins just 750 m away. The AreitExpress will carry you all the way up to the skiing paradise on the Schmittenhöhe, with pistes that offer a full range of difficulty and great snow conditions you can count on all the way back down to the valley, where you will find ski and snowboard schools as well as ski rental businesses. The glacier ski area on the Kitzsteinhorn is just 12 km away, promising snowy enjoyment 365 days a year.

Cross-country skiing & Sledding

Looking for an alternative? A wide selection of cross-country ski trails invite you to show off your “skating” technique. Just 100 m from the house is a floodlit night trail. Hikes through the snowy winter countryside are especially popular. With snowshoes on your feet, you can trudge through the snow on the Schmittenhöhe and explore virgin nature. Afterwards, enjoy well-earned refreshments at one of the many traditional huts, including a wide selection of regional specialties along with a mug of hot chocolate. Far removed from the bustling pistes, you may prefer to explore the region on touring skis. Around Zell am See are many different routes presenting all kinds of challenges, with plenty of watering holes along the way. Close to us, the “Kohlschnait” sledding hill promises fun for the whole family and is even lit up until 11 o’clock at night. The “Maisiflitzer” in Kaprun was the first Alpine coaster in Salzburger Land, treating you to exhilarating rides year-round.
