Schmittenhöhe & Elisabethkirche
in Zell am See
Schmittenhoehe is the mountain high above the village of Zell am See and you can go there easily by cablecar. In summer you will have endless possibilities to take a walk or longer hikes and paragliders will be waiting there for tandem-passengers as well.
In wintertime Schmittenhoehe is a great area for skiing.
There is a chapel for the austrian empress Sissi, a mountainhotel and various restaurants.
Elisabethkapelle was built in the year 1905 on top of Schmittenhoehe, in a hight of about 2000m above sealevel, in order to memorize empress Sisi. You can enter this chapel freely and without restrictions during the day and will find a nice interior in a combination of Art Nouveau and traditional style.
This chapel is just a few meters from the station of Schmittenhoehe.
