Lake Zell Am See Self-guided Walking Tour

Salzburg´s Zell am See District is almost predestined for a walking week to enjoy: an awesome mountain scenery with a panorama view onto grassy mountains with alps, onto steep peaks and onto more than 30 impressing 3.000 m peaks. For your refreshment after the diversified walking tours the deep blue shimmering Lake Zell is inviting you for a bathe, another possibility is the hotel swimming pool of palace Kammer. Enjoy yourself in the rustic sauna or with a portion of original Pinzgauer Kasnockn (cheese dumplings) in the rural snuggery for dinner. Palace-village Maishofen is the ideal starting point for the most beautiful walking tours in the region and offers furthermore numerous highlights to discover. The highest mountain in Austria, the Großglockner with its 3.798 m is for sure a visit worth it, as well as Europe´s highest waterfalls in Krimml. Do not miss all these amazing opportunities!
