Rathaus : The townhall of Zell am See
This is the townhall / the Rathaus of Zell am See and it looks a bit like an old castle with some nice baywindows and small towers at each corner. You will find this building in the centre of the village, along the mainroad, in the area where the street towards the cablecar for Schmittenhoehe is situated.
Rent a whisperboat!
We rented a whisperboat for half an hour for a view on Zell am See from the lake1 It is also possible to rent a watercycle.
Prices are approx. € 10,00 per half hour for a family with two children.
Zell Am See - Beautiful Town with Lake & Mountains
"Part of my honeymoon in June 2007"
Zell Am See is a town located in the Alps region of Austria, next to the Zeller See (lake) and surrounded by beautiful mountains. This town is very popular both in winter and summer because of good skiing and hiking trails of the surrounding mountains respectively, especially Schmittenhohe (see my VT Schmitten page) the mountain just next to Zell Am See.
My wife and I spent a part of our honeymoon at this lovely town in June 2007, and really enjoyed our time here. Hope the information and photographs will be useful to you, and hope you can give some comments and ratings. Thanks.
The Zeller See is a small and beautiful lake next to Zell Am See. There are many activities here, especially during summer where you can see people swimming, boating, sailing etc. During the cold winter, the lake freezes.
The town of Zell Am See is small and easy to move around. There are some beautiful Austrian architecture/buildings here, and it is generally safe to walk around the town and lake areas.
