Zell am See

Zell am See is located on the shores of Lake Zell and lies next to the Hohe Tauern National Park and the Grossglockner mountain. It is also ideally located at the German border.

Zell am See is one of the most scenic and most popular resorts in Austria. Beautifully located on the shores of Lake Zell, the village lies next to the Hohe Tauern National Park and the Grossglockner mountain range. The lake has clear water and allows swimming in parts of it, should that prove bracing then visit the thermal baths of nearby Badgastein. Zell am See has a traffic free historical town centre and great shopping possibilities.

Take a look through the hotels in Zell am See that we have highlighted, all of which will provide excellent accommodation for your Austria holiday. However, if you are looking to visit a different area of the country, we can help you arrange anything from Vienna city breaks to hotels in Bregenz.

Gasthof Alpenblick is a typical Austrian tavern, which has a restaurant as well. Another popular one is the rustic Bacchuskeller which has a local musician playing. Very famous by Dutch and British tourists is the Resi, where music and dancing can be enjoyed.
