Kaprun Things to Do

  • Kaprun - Sigmund-Thunn klamm

    This gorge makes a nice visit when in the Kaprun area.A glacier covered the Kapruner valley about 14.000 years ago. When the glacier disappeared, it eroded the Maiskogel and the Burgkogel mountains, leaving behind a gorge for the river called the Kapruner Ache. Smooth sides and swirling water is what you can see, while the the limestone cliffs are...

  • Votter's car museum

    In the centre of Kaprun, you'll find the hotel 'Sport-Kristall'.This is also the location of an extensive private collection of oldtimer cars. The museum is located in the hotel's basement, but in fact has more objects on display than you would expect.We have never stayed at this hotel, but it all looked very clean and cosy with eye for detail.The...

  • SIGMUND-THUN KLAMM [GORGE]

    Try to imagine 14,000 years ago when the Kaprun Valley was covered by a glacier slowly moving down the valley, carving away the hard limestone, slate and mica cliffs of the Maiskogel and Burgkogel. When the glacier melted, it left behind the deep gorge which the Kaprun Stream flowed through into the valley. This is the Sigmund-Thun Gorge, that's in...

  • Kaprun - the reservoirs - the journey

    The journey up to the Kaprun reservoirs is almost as spectacular as the destination Itself !The journeyThe first part of the journey starts at the Kesselfall Alpenhaus and takes you by bus on a winding road and through some tunnels to the start of the 'Lärchwand Schrägaufzug' (an inclined lift - see pictures). This lift is Europe's biggest one of...

  • Kaprun - the reservoirs...

    The Kaprun Hochgebirgsstauseen (high mountain reservoirs) are a wonderful visit.Since you are quite high up in the mountains (around 2.000 m), it's of course best to visit them on a day without rain ... you'll have a wonderful view over the surrounding mountains of the Nationalpark Hohe Tauern.These 2 huge waterreservoirs and their dams provide the...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    in the evenings after a hard day ski-ing, most people congregate down at this excellent and lively bar. There doesn't appear to be any website or phone details for the place, but if you visit this resort you can't help but find it.

    Dress Code: there is no apparent dress code

    Faster than the train! Only 2 hours and cheaper too. The bus fare can be purchased all the way to kaprun and not zell am see. Take this option!
    This ski bus cuts through Germany and exits into Salzburg. The stop just after SZG airport presents suitable overnight options in penzions.

  • KITZSTEINHORN GONDOLA RIDE

    Following the road further up the valley, we came across the Kitzsteinhorn Gondola station. Located above the village, is Kitzsteinhorn glacier skiing. It was in June, so there was no skiing, so we did the Gondola ride for the views. As it takes quite a while to reach the top station, we couldn't go the whole distance before closing. What we did...

  • WOOD-CARVINGS

    I didn't know anything about these wood-carvings, we just came across them as we were driving in Bruck. When I saw them, we had to stop and go for a look. It looked to be a business that was run at home.I just loved all the carved faces, they all had different expressions and were so well done! They were scattered around the garden, and then there...

    This last winter, snow was extremely limited in most of europe...skiiers were having a hard time trying to find resorts that could GUARANTEE the white stuff. I discovered Kaprun, a lovely little Austrian villlage, near the resort town of Zell Am See, in Austria. Near it lies the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, which guarantees snow and absolutly, wonderfully, organized conditions ALL YEAR ROUND! The slopes seem endless, are very well taken care of and anything a skiier could possibly need is supplied there, as well as in the village of Kaprun. The prices are fair, there are plenty of guest rooms and hotels available, and it is easily reached from either Salzburg, or Munich. Definitly worth a visit also in the summer!!

    Equipment: Either bring your own, or rent. Most hotels and guest rooms can offer rental discounts to their guests at various rental shops. There is also biking available in the summer months.

    the only snow around for miles... goin' up the top of the glacier the village at dawn
