Beside numerous sporty highlights, the beautiful lake and the panorama, summer in the region Zell am See – Kaprun also has a lot of party and traditional things to offer. Beside the Summer Night Festivals and the Zeller Lake Festivals there are some other nice Villagefeasts near our beautiful town Zell am See to celebrate the summer. In this blog entry we want to present you some of these festivities.

Here you see the links on our blog of the Summer Night Festivals and the 2 Zeller Lake Festivals:

Thumersbacher Feast

At the beginning we would like to mention the Thumersbacher Feast on 22 July 2017. Thumersbach belongs to the city of Zell am See and is also located at the beautiful Zeller lake. The Thumersbacher Feast is one of the smaller feasts but definitely very nice where the young ones and the old ones come together to eat, drink and dance. The party tent, which is situated at the village square offers live music, knuckle of pork, traditional Pinzgauer “Blattl”, coffee and cake during the day and a lot of party all day long. For the kids there will be a bouncy castle, kids-make-up, and shaping balloons can’t be left out.

From our hotel Grüner Baum and the city of Zell am See the village Thumersbach is very easy to reach within 30 min. by feet or 5 to 10 min. by bike/car.

Kapruner traditional “Trachtenfeast”

The next festivity we want to mention is the famous and well-known Kapruner “Trachtenfeast”. It is taking place in the centre of Kaprun at 11 and 12 August 2017. Also at this feast there will be great music, tradition, kids-programme and culinary delicacies. On Friday, the 11 August 2017, the feast starts at 6 pm with a big march and beer tapping. Saturday, 12 August 2017 stars a little earlier at 11 am with “Frühshoppen”. The stands are feasted by different clubs of Kaprun and many games and action will await you there. Regarding the music, the Kapruner Trachtenfeast has a huge range of top acts of Austria to offer. On Friday at 7 pm you will hear “Austria for you” at the “Gemeindeplatz” and “Die Lungauer” at the “Salzburgerplatz”. On Saturday “Wadltreiber” and “Ursprung Buam” are entertaining at the “Salzburgerplatz” in the afternoon and are followed by “Die Pagger Baum”. Meanwhile you can listen to “Spatzensound” at the “Gemeindeplatz”.

The village Kaprun isn’t far away from our hotel Grüner Baum in Zell am See and can be reached in 10 to 15 minutes driving time.

Mittersiller City Festival

Not as fast to reach as the other villages we have mentioned, the city Mittersill and its City Festival are definitely noteworthy. Mittersill is a city in a different part of Pinzgau and from Zell am See you can reach it in about 35 minutes. The festival has a duration of 3 days and is taking place from 28 to 30 July 2017. The motto of this year’s City Festival is “10 years Nationalparkcenter” and starts with the beer tapping. As a visitor you can look forward to a great kids-programme, live music, tractor meeting, streets-acrobatics and great offerings at Mittersiller stores. When you shop you can collect fortunes in order to win great prices at the draw on Saturday, 29 July at 6 pm. In the evening and at night the motto is party, party and more party.
