It was always there…
The Zeller Lake has been around for a very long time, long before Pinzgau, Salzburg or Austria – the formation of the lake goes way back to over 10,000 years ago to when the Ice-Age was retreating. Today the 4.55 square kilometer lake is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Salzburgerland. The lake water temperatures in the summer can reach a wonderfully pleasant 23 degrees providing fantastic opportunity for swimming and relaxation. There are several heated outdoor swimming pools around the lake so you can enjoy the fun of the water even in early summer and autumn. The areas around the lake have benefited from its Nature-Conservation status dating back to the mid-70s yielding an abundance of flora and fauna to enjoy today. Fauna includes a wide range of animals including deer, otter, fox, frogs, toads and a variety of fish and birdlife.
