Anniversary edition in Zell am See-Kaprun
10 outdoor influencers experienced the most exciting winter facets of the Zell am See-Kaprun region and transmitted their perspectives across the world.
Thick snowflakes, BBQ in 2,500 m above sea level and first-class wellness: The programme for the tenth edition of #MYINSTAWEEKEND in SalzburgerLand was filled with adventures, culinary highlights and relaxation in the Zell am See-Kaprun region. Angelique Vochezer (@angeliquelini), Sebastian Scheichl (@zeppaio), Magdalena Mittersteiner (@magdalenamst), Niklas Siemens (@sieklas), Manuel Dietrich (@manueldietrichphotography), David Herzig (@david_herzig), Roman Königshofer (@rawmeyn), Tom Klocker (@tomklockerphoto), Niko Brinkmann (@patheight) and Lisa Eiersebner (@visitaustria) came equipped with their camera, smartphone and drone to capture unique moments for their communities in posts and Instagram stories.
Day 1: Check-In, Klammsee Reservoir, Flying & more.
„Das Falkenstein“ wellness hotel in Kaprun proved to be the perfect home base for the ten outdoor influencers. To climb the region’s mountains, they used the perfect four-wheel drive of the Audi Q5 quattro. Having made themselves at home in their rooms, they went off to the idyllic Klammsee Reservoir of the Kaprun Ache river, and then took off in a Sennair helicopter for a tour high above Lake Zell. Many amazing impressions later, the ten Instagramers enjoyed original Pinzgau Kasnockn (cheese gnocchi) from the pan at ”Das Falkenstein“.
Day 2: Ski'n'Brunch, snowshoes & many mystic moments
Skiing meets culinary delights: The alarm clock went off very early in the morning – because the second day started at 7.15 am, when it was still dark, with an uphill ride to the Schmittenhöhe. Ski’n’Brunch in Zell am See meant to be the first on the empty, just-groomed pistes for the perfect turns. The batteries were recharged afterwards at the joint brunch in the warm public room of Blaickner’s Sonnalm. More winter highlights and fantastic scenes of the Zell am See-Kaprun region were on the agenda in the afternoon and evening. One of them was the snowshoe hiking tour with guide Gabi from the Schmittenhöhe. She guided the hikers through a snow-covered winter wonderland uphill to the Plettsaukopf and the first reservoir of the Schmitten.
Away from the winter hustle and bustle, the outdoor influencers not only enjoyed the tranquillity of nature here, they were also fascinated by the wonderful view to Lake Zell, stretching even to the peaks of the Hohe Tauern National Park.
Following the uphill ride to Alpincenter at the Kitzsteinhorn, BBQ food with plenty of meat, vegetables & co was served at the table with own grill during the MYSTIC MOUNTAIN BBQ at Restaurant Gletschermühle 2,500 m above sea level in the evening. The perfect end to a day full of variety with many fantastic spots in the Zell am See-Kaprun region.
Day 3: glacier experience, spa time & the 10th myinstaweekend anniversary
What do you have to do to absolutely deserve lunch at Gipfelrestaurant, Salzburg’s highest-situated restaurant? Simply get up very early in the morning and take skis and snowboard uphill to the Kitzsteinhorn for absolute powder snow fun. The ten Instagramers were simply overwhelmed by the fantastic snow conditions and sent loads of pictures, videos and stories to their social media followers with tips on what they shouldn’t miss. Before going to the big “10th Edition of MyInstaWeekend“ anniversary party at Margarethenstein, the influencers had time to relax at the Flying Spa of the ”das Falkenstein“ wellness hotel. And that was important because the party was great fun – the “Scheibsta & die Buben“ live band with its creative freestyle stunts made sure that the night was short.
Day 4: Earlybird up at Kitzsteinhorn
Because the snow at the Kitzsteinhorn was simply amazing, many Instagramers took the first gondola uphill to the Kitzsteinhorn at 7.00 am to enjoy the view from ”Top of Salzburg“ and to experience the glacier ski resort in SalzburgerLand with no-one else around.
This was the last highlight of the tenth MyInstaWeekend in SalzburgerLand – the enthusiasm of the Instagramers during every single item on the agenda was impressive. It was also great to see the fantastic impressions of the Zell am See-Kaprun region they shared with their respective community under the hashtag #myinstaweekend. We hope that you come to see us again soon and wish you many exciting moments on your next discovery tours.
