Mountains, Lakes and Glacier

Contrasts are dominant in the landscape around Austria’s region of Zell am See-Kaprun. Located at a sparkling lake and surrounded by mountains covered with green meadows, close to a snow-covered glacier. This incredible diversity makes Zell am See-Kaprun a unique holiday region.

Spring in Kaprun

While the majestic mountains of the Hohe Tauern National Park are still shrouded in snow, the young nature around Lake Zell is awakening. During a spring holiday in Salzburgerland, you will experience how it sprouts, blooms, chirps and smells everywhere. First snowdrops, then crocuses and soon countless meadow flowers transform the alpine pastures into a sea of ​​colors that you should have seen.

With warm spring temperatures and firn snow, the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area invites you to spring skiing with guaranteed snow in the Kaprun ski area on the legendary Kitzsteinhorn glacier! Ski on the perfectly groomed slopes in the morning and soak up the sun on the balcony of your Zell am See Kaprun holiday apartment in the afternoon!

Lie down in the banked turns and feel the fresh spring air on your face as you speed down the downhill. Does that sound too adventurous to you? In the Zell am See Kaprun region, mountain bikers, gravel bikers, e-bikers, racing cyclists and leisure cyclists will find their dream route!


You thought Kaprun was closed outside the winter season? Of course not! Where during winter skiers and snowboarders mix and mingle, the pleasure holiday makers find a perfect summer holiday destination.

And the most important gift they bring back home: inexhaustible joie de vivre. You will be surprised about the positive effects of mountain biking, playing Golf, hiking or swimming in the cristal clear Zeller lake. Every type of sport will bring you closer to yourself and what you would like to be.

The best thing about it? With our Summercard it is an all-inclusive deal! Action, fun and variety all with one unique card.

Autumn in Kaprun

Golden autumn is definitely the best season for hiking. The sun is milder, the flora more colourful, the people are more relaxed. When the leaves start turning the hiker’s autumn has arrived. Use the off peak season between the Indian summer and early autumn for gorgeous hiking tours with the whole family or just the two of you within the stunning Nationalpark Hohe Tauern.

When the sun throws long shadows along the valley, and the mountains sparkle in the clear autumn air, the first fresh snow has already fallen on the Kitzsteinhorn. Leave the autumn mists below you in the valley and be the first to enjoy the crisp white powder of the year. For skiers, carvers and boarders, this is the peak time of the year to dive into the powder snow and enjoy the broad expanses of the uncrowded glacier.  Here, the Winter starts alredy middle of October. 


Maximum snow reliability, almost endless kilometers of slopes and the most modern lift systems - all of this awaits you in the Kaprun ski area Maiskogel and Kitzsteinhorn as well as in the Zell am See ski area Schmittenhöhe in the state of Salzburg.
