The Skiing place Zell am See is one of the most beautiful areas in Salzburg. But what else can Zell am See provide to you? Beside great but exhausting skiing days up on the mountain, it’s probably very interesting for you to know, which alternatives you have, to make your day sporty but a bit more comfortable. In this blog entry you can find some useful tips for having fun.

Sledding in Bruck a/d Glocknerstraße
One of the funniest alternatives definitely is to go sledding. Whether on a sunny afternoon or in the evening, when everything is lightened up with a great dinner at the hut up on the mountain – sledding is a must for anyone when visiting Zell am See. The best option near our hotel “Hotel Grüner Baum” is the sled run in Bruck a/d Glocknerstraße. The opening hours are from 11 am to 12 pm and it’s always lightened.

The run is 3 km long and by car or by taxi you can reach it in 10 minutes, afterwards a tractor takes you up to the top of the run. The bobsleighs can be borrowed right there, so you don’t have to do anything but having fun and bring motivation with you. If you would like to take some drinks before sledding down or even want to eat up there, the Kohlschnait hut is the best place to have a nice evening together. Well so nothing can stop you from having a perfect day.
