Water adventure 

The element water in the Zell am See-Kaprun

With its location and crystal-clear water, Lake Zell is one of Austria´s most beautiful lakes. In summer, the lake´s water reaches pleasant temperatures of around 23 degrees and offers sporty options as well as pure relaxation. Furthermore, off the lake shore you can enjoy numerous water sports for a varied summer vacation in SalzburgerLand.

Beach vacation at Lake Zell

Our lake is the center of the region, especially in summer. While bathing, sailing and surfing you explore the region from the water. From nowhere you can enjoy better views of nature and the mountains than from the middle of the lake.

In summer you can enjoy a great time in the three lidos of Zell am See, Thumersbach and Schüttdorf. Heated pools, diving towers, water trampolines or giant slides as well as playgrounds for children - these are just some of the amenities apart of large sunbathing lawns and swimming areas: the place to be for all water lovers and sun worshippers.

Water sport between mountain and valley

Whether surfing, stand-up-paddling, banana boating and kayaking or pedal boating: the sporty options ensure lots of action even on the water. The panoramic cruises on board the "MS Schmittenhöhe" offer particularly beautiful views over the lake. Away from Lake Zell there are also numerous providers of canyoning and rafting offering pure action.

Fishing in lake Zell

Patience and a bit of luck are important factors when fishing at Lake Zell. Whitefish, pike, perch, lake char, zander and lake trout can be caught in the lake Zell from April to November. Whether you are fishing from the boat or the riverside, in Zell am See-Kaprun you will be fishing in one of the clearest lakes in Austria. You can hardly wait to throw your fishing rod into the Lake Zell? Then you should inform yourself in advance about the current price list as well as provisions on Lake Zell. And do not forget to get a fish card at Sport Achleitner, the Restaurant Seewirt, the Fishing Team or the Bräurup before you can enjoy the sunrise on Lake Zell and maybe a fish on the fishing rod.
