Whether on the mountain or in the valley, there is something new to discover every day in and around Zell am See-Kaprun. This includes numerous attractions in nature: A snowball fight in the middle of summer on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier is just as much a part of the programme as counting the summits from the Schmittenhöhe panorama mountain. In addition, marvels of technology such as the high mountain reservoirs or leisure experiences such as a boat trip on Lake Zell or a visit to the Therme Tauern SPA are waiting for you.

You can learn about the region’s history at the many museums in the region: at the Kaprun Museum, you will find information about the village’s 4000 years of history, while the National Park Gallery on the Kitzsteinhorn opens the doors to the fascinating world of the glaciers and the Hohe Tauern National Park. Another attraction is a visit to the high mountain reservoirs in Kaprun, where you can enter the interior of these enormous structures on a guided tour of the dam wall.
