2 days in Zell am see

Hi,

We will be in Zell am see (base) for 2 days in Mar 11. we do not drive and are non-skier. But would like to visit the Kitzsteinhorn glacier in Kaprun.

1) How to get to the cable car station to (Kitzsteinhorn glacier) from Zell am see by public transport? How long does it take?

2) Is it worth going to Kitzbuehel? Can we cover both the glacier trip and the town of Kitzbuehel in one day?

Pls advise and many thanks in advance.

Cheers !

Ad 1) By bus #660. Timetables can be found here: http://fahrplan.oebb.at/bin/query.exe/e

From: Zell am See

To: Kaprun Kitzsteinhorn Bergbahn (Parkplatz Mitte)

Ad 2) Kitzbühel is one of the bigger places in the region and surely worth to be visited. Whether it is good to do it on the same day depends on someone's preferences. Basically it should be easily feasible but you have to pass through Zell am See in any case. So you would not save any time by doing it on the same day.

Hi Mikey,

Thanks for the info. There is a direct train from Zell am see to Kitzbuehel which takes 45 mins? Correct me if I'm wrong....

We were in Kitzbuhel in December and it is interesting.

However if you are in Zell am See, i would probably stay in that area, the glacier is great but it a much better experience if you go on a sunny day, or at least with reasonable visibility.

As mentioned there is a regular bus service from Zell am See.

I would consider visiting Tauern Spa Kaprun, it a lovely enhancement to any holiday. Also perhaps a sleigh ride? Or go up on to the Schmitten the mountain behind Zell am See.

Have a great time.

During the summer if you want to see some snow, go to the glacier on the Kitzsteinhorn behind Kaprun. It a 15-20 minute bus ride from Zell am See
