Put your running shoes on and off you go ...

You don't need much: a pair of running shoes,  functional sportswear and some motivation and off you go. Running and trail running are easy and wonderful ways to move around in the landscape, especially when the landscape is so beautiful like the one in Zell am See-Kaprun. Easy running routes in the valley, through forests or around Lake Zell are great for warm-up. Challenging high altitude trails and promenades in average altitude show you how important training for running fun is. If you exactly know what you are doing and if you have enough stamina and training, then take the mountain trails, mountain paths and hiking trails. It doesn't matter where to, for how long and how far you run as long as you enjoy trail running. Share your passion and come to well-known running events like the Women's Trail in summer 2017.

Just running is not enough ...

You need more! Best combine challenging running sport with two other beautiful outdoor sports; swimming and cycling. Anyone who wants to join the league of total multi-sportsmen and women should take up triathlon. And there is no better place for triathlon than a mountain - glacier - lake region. Zell am See has realised this and has become an internationally known triathlon hotspot. This seems natural given Lake Zell with its pleasantly warm waters of drinking water quality is the best swim training location you possibly could find. The cycling routes not only delight with sporty and challenging mountain ascents but also provide you with views across a remarkable, beautiful scenery. The running routes along the lake warm you up and keep your heart rate on course to excellent training results. The Ironman 70.3 competition, which is staged in Zell am See-Kaprun every summer, proves that this is an excellent event region - just what triathletes are looking for. Are you among the Ironman finishers?


"Hole in one" between mountain & green ...

Zell am See-Kaprun has a golf club. But it has not just one golf course but two, both with 18 holes and well-sounding names. The two golf courses of the Zell am See Golf Club are named Schmittenhöhe and Kitzsteinhorn. Just like the two characterising mountains, which you will see when you swing your clubs in the valley. Beginner or pro - everyone can look forward to a first-class game of golf in Zell am See-Kaprun. The fairways are challenging. However, the Golfacademy Evan Teplitsky provides the foundation for a long career in golf. Golf can also be played on the mountains here. The Schmittenhöhe offers Disc Golf - a combination of golf and Frisbee. A great idea for entire families and a sport where fun and skills are equally important. The uphill ride by mountain railway to the Schmittenhöhe is included and you can start aiming for your target straightaway ...
