Kitzsteinhorn The glacier as a year-round excursion destination
The Kitzsteinhorn is the impressive guardian of the Zell am See-Kaprun region: as a prominent peak in the Hohe Tauern, it shapes the appearance of the region. With the most modern mountain railways, you can safely and comfortably glide uphill to over 3,000 metres above sea level to enjoy a unique view of the sea of peaks from the "Top of Salzburg" panorama platform. Once you have reached the top, you are at the highest point in SalzburgerLand that is accessible for everyone.

Your excursion destination

In addition to the impressive view, the National Park Gallery inside the mountain awaits you on the Kitzsteinhorn: A National Park ranger guides you through the 360-metre-long gallery and takes you on an exciting journey into this natural landscape. Then you can look forward to views of pristine wilderness. In fair weather, you can even see Austria's highest mountain, the Grossglockner, in the distance!
Wonderland of snow and ice
A winter wonderland awaits you at the ICE CAMP presented by Audi on the Kitzsteinhorn: A unique place to relax and enjoy is created from snow and ice - at 2,600 metres above sea level and in the middle of the glacier ski resort! Perfectly matching tunes and cool drinks in glasses made of ice await you here. The ICE CAMP is also accessible for winter hikers via the trail of the same name. In winter there is also a weekly snowshoe hike to the camp.
