  • What can I see about Zell am See! It’s one of my favorite destinations in Austria. I have so many great memories over here. Zell am See has a lot to offer. Despite its size, it has whatever you may needs. The Halal Restaurants are abundant in the area; mainly Turkish and Iraqi. It has a great location that allows you to visit many attractions around the area. Just ask the reception of your hotel, they will give you so many options. And here, I experienced paragliding for the first time in my life!
