Family fun at Lake Zell

Swimming fun & water sports for the entire family in the Zell am See-Kaprun region

Family summer holiday = swimming holidays. Even as children we would dream all year long of summer, swimming in refreshing waters and having a great time. This hasn't changed. A summer holiday with the entire family at a lake is still something very special. And it is even better if the lake is located in an amazing holiday region like Zell am See-Kaprun. Swimming fun and water sports can be perfectly combined with many other activities in the region. Just returned from a family hiking tour? Then off to the shores of Lake Zell, the refreshing waters are waiting. You spent the morning on the mountain or were looking for the region's most beautiful attractions? Then your kids will enjoy a dive into the cold lake ...

Swimming in waters of drinking water quality

Speaking of quality, motor boats, except a few excursion boats, are not permitted on Lake Zell. This ensures the unique quality of the water. You can drink the water of course but most people are quite happy just to swim in it. Several places around Lake Zell offer opportunities for a swim. The three lidos Zell am See, Thumersbach and Schüttdorf are the hotspots for water enthusiasts. Children's pool, adventure pool, diving platform, swimming bays, swimming floats, water slides and much more ensure that nobody gets bored around the lake. 

Something for everyone

The youngest holidaymakers in the Zell am See-Kaprun region can look forward to toddler pools, swimming classes and children's adventure pools. If the lake is still a bit too far away, then there is plenty of space for the kids to let off steam at the lidos, on the playgrounds or sunbathing lawns. With the kids all happy, you could try some stand-up paddling. Or you hire a surfboard, a sailing boat or a kayak and explore the most beautiful sites of Lake Zell. You will also not get bored near the Zell am See water ski school. Are you looking for rest, relaxation and delight? Many cafes and restaurants around the lidos in Zell am See, Thumersbach and Schüttdorf invite you to sit down, enjoy and let the sport be sport. How about an ice cream? Or perhaps an original Italian cappuccino?


Boat trip on Lake Zell

Would you like to be your own captain? No problem, best you rent a boat and spend unique hours with your family on Lake Zell. But beware! You can only rent electric boats, rowing boats or pedal boats, because motor boats are forbidden. In this way we maintain the drinking water quality of our Lake Zell.The entire lake of Zell am See is probably not to cope with the borrowed boat. For this you can take a trip with the MS Schmittenhöhe. With the Zell am See-Kaprun Summer Card you can enjoy this pleasure for free.
