Summer or winter zell am see is one of the most beutifull places in Austria. Skiing with view at the frozen lake is like you are in a fairytale.

You can walk all the way around the lake and it can take 2-3 hours, depending on how fast you walk! Buy stale bread from local shop cheaply and go and feed the ducks! Boats not available in December but I can imagine it would be a popular in the summer months

Ducks were approaching us even at a night walk on the shore of the Grand Hotel. Very well maintained historical centre of the village, nearby the lake.

Even when cold, it is beautiful to walk around this lake and if it gets really cold in winter you can even walk across it (I found this a bit scary)

Time is stopping while sitting in front of Zell Am See lake. Hiring a boat there is a pleasure especially for families.

Worth a walk around it, or at least part of it. Very beautiful scenery. With the mountains etc all around. It was winter so not much going on on the lake itself.

This year's Chrstmas tree was raised from the lake at the same time that last year's Christmas tree was submerged. You need to know the story behind this event.

This lake is surrounded by gorgeous Austrian mountains and quaint little restaurants and hotels. We loved coming here. We actually stayed in Salfelden which is a small town 15 minutes away from Zell am See. But we drove to this lake many times during our 2 week stay to go to the coffee shops, restaurants and to enjoy the scenery.... More
