Alpine Delight

Culinary moments of happiness for an unforgettable holiday

You probably already know: food never tastes better than on holiday and never is the appetite bigger than after an extensive hiking tour, a mountain bike tour or a day on the piste. If you then sit down on a sunny, warm wooden bench with a view of the three-thousand-metre-high peaks, in a shaded guest garden or on the lakeshore, you will feel like a king or queen. In Zell am See-Kaprun, exercise, sport and activity play just as big a role as culinary delights and alpine enjoyment.

There are eight award-winning restaurants in the region, inviting inns and mountain restaurants, coffee houses and bars, including the highest-situated restaurant in SalzburgerLand on Kitzsteinhorn, four culinary stations on the Schmittenhöhe and the three culinary trails - "Lake", "Mountain" and "Glacier". Food is mainly prepared with local and seasonal ingredients that come directly from the region. They ensure that your holiday in Zell am See-Kaprun goes through your stomach and has a lasting effect: as unforgettable moments of delight.
