The area is flat so young and old good for walking, plenty to do. Crazy golf, dip in lido or lake, just sit and enjoy people watching, or ice cream drink cake etc., etc, we are here middle of July and the
"Seefest" was on a Saturday they close off the front put lot of attraction and feeding +drinking places along front (was payable that day) lots of local band dances etc etc, Other days/evenings all free , in the evenings bands play in town square or on band stand on see front, + free / light /water / lazier show in lasted about 20 mins + to pop and rock or classical music very. Good.
rain and bus station nearby to not a problem finding or getting to . Lenny of seats to sit on , boats to go on , rides to play on . you can even walk around Zell am see lake takes about 3 hours if you run out of puff or time. Get a boat back to front by Grand hotel .

A very nice lakeside location, with spectacular views across the lake and of the surrounding mountains.. The north end has the Beach Club for lake and/or pool swimming, but beware the operator of the speedboat towing inflated rings - he needs some safety instruction near the swimmers! The cetral section has boats for hire and cruises (plus the Grand Hotel with music on the terrace). To the south is the Elizabeth park, where there is a band stand and just "off-shore" a water and music display (hourly short demos during the afternoons). Twice a week this presents water, lights, lasers and video projections onto the water sprays, with clasical music one night and pop the other - all for free. Plenty of places to eat and drink just across the railway. Easy access for wheelchairs, prams, buggys and bikes.

Lovely lakeside esplanade with plenty of places to sit and enjoy the beautiful view of surrounding mountains. Lots of cafes and restaurants nearby. If, like us, you enjoy walking, you can walk right around the lake, about 12 km on flat terrain, lots of cafes in which to take a breather.

In order to see and enjoy the beauty of Austria's beautiful lake Zell am See, it's highest mountain peak of Grossclokner, pastures on the slopes of the beautiful mountains, Grand Hotel Zell am See with its grandeur reflecting in the waters of the Lake, and the Esplanade and boardwalk with breathtaking views of all that, visit Zell am See. It is just an hour away from Bad Hofgastein by car or a taxi (cost for 4 persons: Euro 110.00 plus waiting @ Euro 30.00 per hour). Boat trip on the Lake is extra if you take one.
You will have the best food, desserts, ice cream and coffee at the Grand Hotel to enjoy under an umbrella to absorb all the beauty what Austria is all about. I have been there few times, in 1988, 2009 and 2013. Today's visit takes place on Father's Day in Canada.

Enjoy the fresh mountain breeze and some truly spectacular views. A relaxing sparkling mountain lake with blooming mountain pastures and unique unforgettable sights into Austria's nature. As you go for a walk along the Esplanade Lake of Zell um See.
