The European Sports-Region Zell am See - Kaprun is a paradise of European standing for athletes and active holiday-makers as well as for gourmets and those seeking peace and quiet. Traditional but lively, with its cobbled streets and medieval buildings, Zell am See is one of the most charming and attractive lakeside ski resorts in Austria houseWinterSmall.PNG (45214 bytes)

The surrounding area offers great snow - it is at the centre of the European Sports-Region, with sure skiing for all levels of skiers.   The Region Ski pass also covers Schuttdorf, Thummersback and Karprun where you can ski 12 months of the year.  The extensive cross country trails in the valleys around Zell are endless.   If you are not taking part in skiing, a walk across the frozen lake is a wonderful experience.

Zell am See and its neighboring village of Kaprun, set at the foot of the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier, offers 150km of superb all year round skiing and are covered by the region Ski Pass.  The vast ski area offers unlimited possibilities for all grades of skiers.   The local ski area of Zell am See, the Schmittenhohe, provides a good selection of wide and scenic pistes, and enjoys easy access by the Zeller goldola to the Mittlestation from where a series of chair lifts takes you to the pistes of the Schmittenhohe Mountain.

The Maiskogel is an excellent ski area with an interesting number of red runs leading through the forest to Kaprun village, while the Kitzsteinhorn at 10,000 feet, guarantees snow throughout the year and provides skiers with a good selection of varied runs.

Apress Ski - After dark, Zell am See offers a wide variety of bars and night clubs for all tastes, from the lively and appropriately named Crazy Daisy (Irish Daisy) to the more serene atmosphere of the cafes overlooking the lake and dancing at the Evergreen.

The lively disco is the Diele Bar situated in the centre of town.   For the more mature, music at the Viva, which is busier late at night and at the week-ends.

In the evening following your meal in one of the many down town restaurants you can return to Aisling Haus and enjoy a game of cards/scrabble, etc, or watch TV and have a night cap in our lounge with breathtaking views overlooking the city lights in the valley. diningRoomSmall.PNG (36041 bytes)

Because of our elevated position with the best panoramic views of Zell am See and our location beside the piste, with the possibility of skiing to and from our house each day (snow permitting), there is a 5 minute uphill walk from the road to our house.
