Water sports and bathing fun
around Lake Zell

The Salzburger Land is a true paradise for bathers and water sports enthusiasts - first and foremost: Lake Zell.
This lake not only invites you to swim, but also to take part in exciting and varied water sports activities. Nestled between the striking peaks of the Hohe Tauern and the gentle Pinzgau grassy mountains, Lake Zell is one of the most beautiful lakes in Austria. With its pleasant water temperature of 23 degrees, the crystal-clear bathing lake promises pleasant cooling on hot summer days.

In this blog post, we take you on a journey of discovery in and around the Zeller See.



The Zeller See
where recreation and adventure lie very close together

Both recreation seekers and adrenaline junkies get their money's worth at Lake Zell: Here you can try sailing, SUP yoga, kayaking, stand-up paddling or water skiing, become a captain yourself with a boat or enjoy the lake in a relaxed way from one of the three lidos.

Discover the wealth of possibilities our beautiful Lake Zell has to offer:

During your bathing holiday in Zell am See-Kaprun, you will be tempted by three lidos: they are spread out around the lake and offer fun, games and relaxation for families, sun worshippers and those seeking peace and quiet.  The lido in Zell am See is perfect for families who not only want to swim but also experience a little action.

The Strandbad in Zell am See is perfect for families who not only want to swim but also experience a little action. Besides an additional pool with slide and a diving tower, there is also a toddlers' pool directly in the lido. And if all that was still too boring for you, you can race your friends on the banana. There is also a small, fine restaurant on site, serving cool drinks and homemade snacks. 

The Strandbad Thumersbach is located right on the other side of the lake and is the hotspot for sun-seekers who want to enjoy the sun for an extra long time until evening. The lido is a natural swimming pool and is nestled in an idyllic park. Those who want to can try their hand at water skiing, rent their own boat or test their skills on the stand-up paddleboard. Culinary delights are provided by the beach club directly connected to the open-air pool. 

The Strandbad Schüttdorf is located on the southern shore of Lake Zell, which is also the starting point for the legendary IRONMAN 70.2. Here you will find a large sunbathing lawn with many shady spots, a solar-heated outdoor pool and two wide wooden jetties that invite you to jump into the cool water. Ice cream, snacks and refreshing drinks are available at the lido's restaurant. You can also rent canoes, stand-up paddles or windsurfing equipment here  .

Take your time and enjoy the view - this is particularly successful on board the excursion boats in Zell am See. Four ships are available for a leisurely boat trip: The MS Schmittenhöhe,  the MS Glockner, the nostalgia ship Libelle and the "Kaiserin Elisabeth. Experience a breathtaking view of the Steinernes Meer to the north, the Hohe Tauern to the south, as well as Zell's local mountain Schmittenhöhe and the town of Zell am See to the west during a round trip or crossing from the ship.

How about a very special highlight? At the Lake 'n' Brunch, true culinary delights and holiday feeling are guaranteed! Regional specialities are served by the boat crew during the two-hour panoramic cruise. You can find more information about the Lake 'n' Brunch Lake and Brunch.
