Even though the weather was a bit average, this was an awesome experience for an Australian! We just don't get scenery like that!

We visited in June. This is a 3,000m (10,000ft) mountain and over 2,000m above the valley floor. We had to wait three days for the weather to be crystal clear, but well worth going on that day. It is a mountain, so weather can change quickly - if you see an opening go for it, delay could make a big... More

This chairlift ride to the top of this glacier is outrageous. I went on a perfectly clear day and could see as far as you can see. This is totally a must see if you are visiting this area.

THe Kitzsteinhorn mountain is easy to get to by bus from the bus terminus. it takes you to the place where you can board the cable car to the top where you get some magnificient views. Once on top you can just admire the wonderful views of the snow covered mountain tops in June. For those of a less nervous... More

It is worth keeping an eye on the weather and when it is clear making the effort with the cable cars to go to the summit. Great views over many of the hills. Great cafe - really impressive.

If you want one of the best views of Austria this is the place to go. I was amazed at the view. Very quickly got us to the top. Cable car, chair lift, another cable car and next thing you know you are at 3000 m. It started to snow as we started down which was neat since it became... More

We were here in June and picked a slightly cloudy day to visit, hoping it would burn off by the time we got there. We were staying in Zell am See so it was really easy to get here, 660 bus terminates at the cable car at the mountain and in Zell on the way back...dead easy for the tourist... More
