Zell am See is a beautiful summer resort. The lake has a number of beaches and the water temperature reaches 22 c which is remarkable when you consider that it freezes over in the winter! One of the biggest attractions is the "Grossglockner high alpine road" which is visited by over 1 million guests each year.
Here you will find wonderful meadows with wild flowers and waterfalls. The Grossglockner is the highest mountain in Austria at 3798m. The whole area is paradise for mountain bikers and ramblers and bike rental is available in many locations. There is paragliding and white water rafting for the adventurous, as well as one of the finest golf courses in Austria.
