Nestled within the Austrian Alps, Lake Zell offers you a host of opportunities for water activities, relaxation, and exploring nature. Visit the lake, fed and maintained by mountain streams, and discover the lush forested landscape surrounding it, including the small town of Zell am See. Rent a paddleboard or some inflatables to relax on the water, or simply hit the beach. All the while, you'll be surrounded by panoramic mountain scenery, including the snow-capped Kitzsteinhorn glacier and rugged alpine foothills. Alternatively, join a boat trip for a leisurely tour of the area, or hop aboard a river-rafting experience for a taste of the crashing Salzach River.

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!
