"Lakeside Beauty" Zell am See by nhcram

Zell am See Travel Guide: 144 reviews and 566 photos

The sun shone for us.

Zell am See is an unusual resort because it is not a rustic village like most of its small Austrian competitors, but a lakeside town with a charming old centre. I am sure it is geared up more for winter than summer visitors but saying that we found the place alive and well.
The tour around the lake is a must.

Zell makes good base for holidaymakers who enjoy travelling around. Having a car makes it easy to visit numerous other resorts like nearby kaprun.
Cycling is also a popular mode of travel. Hiking is a good way of seeing the area and there are hundreds of marked tracks to enable you to do this.
Parking is not too easy in the town.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful lakeside town.
  • Cons:I can only think of limited parking.
  • In a nutshell:Will come back and see some more.

    I still want to go to Zell am See, because I know people who own a hotel there, but still haven't got the chance yet.
