Zell am See is the capital city of the Zell am See district in the Salzburger Land (the Austrian state of Salzburg).
Zell am See, which translated from German means "Zell by the lake," is one of the most picturesque towns in Austria. It's a beautiful mountain town, located on the western shore of lake Zeller See with Schmittenhohe Mountain as a backdrop. The town is surrounded by massive mountain giants, reaching heights of about 3000 meters above sea level.
I could see why it is a popular resort for summer and winter sports.
Zell am See was founded around 740 A.D., so I saw many medieval-era landmarks. In 1348, Zell Am See acquired the right of market town, but it took until 1875 for the town to really grow!.
Some of the film "BAND OF BROTHERS" was filmed here.

Zell Am See was beautiful, even though it did rain.
