Day trips from Zell Am See

by rahulkav

Hi Guys,

I am visiting Zell Am See in Aug for 4 nights. I am planning a couple of days in and around Zell Am See. One day drive to GrossGLockner Road to Heiligenblut.
I have one day in hand. Is there any nice day trip to any beautiful village/place which is recommended and can be done in one day.

Is it possible to do a day trip Hallstatt from Zell Am See

Thanks in Advance.
Regards,
RahuL...

I did a day trip to Hallstatt from Salzburg by train. It is further from Zell am See. So I think it is possible but a little tight to do it in a day by train. I am not sure about driving though. Another interesting place that is closer to Zell am See is Werfen. There are two main attractions in Werfen - the Eisriesenwelt Höhle (Giant Ice Caves) and Hohenwerfen Fortress. The ice caves are the largest accessible ice caves in the world.

Enjoy!

Thanks a lot for your reply. I would certainly enquire about Werfen.
By car Hallstatt is around 97 km and it should take around 1hr 15 mins according to one of the website. So I hope it should be fine.

Thanks anyways.

Just to mention a few things to look into;
Werfen is a beautiful town, the castle is interesting and the veiw from the ice cave is spectacular. A mild hike is required. Also in the area, Lichtensteinklamm is in neighboring St. Johann im Pongau. Nice flat walk for this one.
There is also Krimml Falls. The tallest waterfall in Europe if I am not mistaken. Be ready for a steep hike to really appreciate it fully. Quaint farm/resturant at the top.
You could check out Bad Gastein. A beautiful town with the river falling through it. Nice shops, resturants and taverns.

I was there about 8 years ago. It`s very nice, I think we went to Salzburg and there were some other trips to Bavaria.
The Eagle`s nest at Berchtesgaden. The Nazi`s built it as a 50th birthday present for Hitler.
Remember to take the cable car up the mountain from Zell am See. I think beer is more potent at higher altitudes. :-)

Thanks a lot for your detail infomration. The other destination I was looking for was Kitzbuehel which is about 54 Km from Zell Am See.

Do you have any information about Gosausee Lake. Planning to go there for one day as well.

cheers,

Thanks for your info mate. Even I have heard about the Hideout place for Hitler. SHould be interesting.

Which cable car you are talking about? Is it the one in Zell Am See itself?
I would definitely take one.

Do you have any information about Gosausee Lake. Planning to go there for one day as well.

Thanks again.

Yes,
there is a cable car in Zell am See. About a 5 minute walk up hill from the railway station. Very handy!

Travel Tips for Zell am See

Krimmler Wasserfaelle are not far from Zell am See

by globetrott

Krimmler Wasserfaelle are a great halfday-excursion from Zell am See. They are the highest waterfalls in Austria.It needs a lot of walking uphill and downhill for quite some time in order to see at least a small part of these gigantic waterfalls. You will mostly see just a small part of it and in order to see all of the many cascades at the same time in your photos you have to step up one of the mountains opposite of the falls or even better : take an airplane (e.g. from Zell am See).
Nevertheless it is worth to step up at least to the 2nd viewpoint, the view from there is excellent, but the haze of the water is sometimes taken to the viewpoint by the wind, so take care of your camera and a rain-gear is never really wrong at these waterfalls, even in bright sunshine !
----------------------------------------
Krimml is quite easy to drive to, when you are coming from Zell am See and Mittersill, the road is also quite scenic.
By public transportation you can take the Bus #670 from Zell am See, it starts in front of the train-station and it also is a ÖBB-bus, so it will be included in your train-passes.
The ride from Zell am See to the village of Krimml takes 75 minutes and the station of the bus is rather close to the entrance of the Krimmler Wasserfaelle.

Town Fountain

by victorwkf

In 1855, the Archbishop Wolf Dietrich gave the fountain to tenure, and in 1885 it became the property of Zell Am See. Apparently in 1894, a water pipe was constructed and the fountain was taken away. In 1954, it was once more erected thanks to the donations from the local people. This fountain was designed by Kiefer marble company and important historical events of Zell Am See are showned on the side panels of this fountain.

the frozen lake

by domenicococozza

"another ski trip"

Zell am See sits in a valley in Saltzburgerland.The town of Zell sits around a huge lake which freezes over in winter and makes for good skating.
The snow skiing is primarily aimed at intermediate and advanced skiers, but there is also an excellent ski school. The town itself is very quiet and does not lend itself well to apres ski, but there are a few bars and restaurants. The best skiing takes place a 10 minute bus ride away in Kaprun, where it is possible to ski the Schmittehohe glacier or the Maiskogel. The main skiing in Zell am See is on the Schmittehohe. These two areas open up a total of 130 kms of open piste
