Really nice trip on the gondola up to the top of the Schmittenhohe. We were lucky to have a beautiful day to visit. Lots of very atmospheric clouds around, great views over many of the Alps. Had a restaurant at the top too.

You can take a local bus from Zell to the west end of town to catch the tram that will transport you up the Schmittenhohe. Many of the tourists are hikers and take the tram to the top to go hiking. My wife and I simply went to the top to enjoy the wonderful scenery.

It's an excellent way to orientate your self to the geography and taking the beautiful views. The bus ride from Zell to the lift takes about 10 minutes. The lift ride itself takes about 10 or 15 minutes and is enclosed.

As I mentioned, this is a great way to start your tour of Zell and the area even if you're not a hiker.

We had decided to take the lift up from Zell am See to Schmittenhohe and it was amazing. It was one of those days where you can see for miles and miles. Clear, autumn, but still almost summer warm. The city lay as a little jewel alongside the lake and gleamed in the haze.

A perfect walking tour alongside the mountain with friends and some gulasch soup and wine before going down again.

Loved the ride up in the cable car and the views from the top are amazing, get a resort hike and swim card for about £70 and you can ride on the cable cars and chair lifts as many times as you want for free.
