Winter wondering while
Winter wandering
With or without snowshoes? That depends both on the snow conditions and the choice of tour. Sure enough, in the middle of glaciers and peaks, Zell am See – Kaprun region offers a wide range of designated (winter) hiking trails. However, if snowflakes fall from the sky like down feathers and the Pinzgau turns into a deep snow landscape snow flower by snow flower, some paths must be found first. For touring skiers, such a winter landscape presents the Pinzgau at its best. The sun is shining, the snow is glistening, time is standing still. Crystal clear air awakens your spirits and the journey begins…
SPAs in the region
Dense fog obscures the view, ice sheets turn the slopes into dangerous glissades and frost bites your fingertips despite gloves? Under such conditions, not only fair-weather drivers lack motivation. If the mountain world turns into an icy hell, escaping into the pleasant warmth of the regional SPAs remains the only option. Whether in the Tauern SPA Kaprun, the Alpentherme Gastein or the Felsentherme Bad Gastein, the Pinzgau hot springs will rejuvenate and rejoice your body and mind. The scent of warm wood and the soothing warmth of ethereal infusions will make you plunge into a world of serenity and ease. Feel your muscles relax and dispatch your thoughts on a wonderful journey.
Contemplative Advent magic
The region’s most beautiful Christmas markets
Silent white. A hint of cinnamon and cloves in the air. A concentrated mix of fruity orange punch aroma and the scents of roasted almonds and gingerbread. Candlelight and lush green pine provide an idyllic impression. Sparkling eyes and fast beating children’s hearts… Nothing does rise Christmas anticipation as quickly as a romantic Advent market! In the Zell am See – Kaprun region you will find some of the most beautiful Christmas markets of Salzburg. Even the biggest Grinch will not be able to resist this contemplative Christmas magic…
