One of the best hotels in Zell am See for families
- Half Board
- Sun terrace
- Lounge & fireplace
- Extensive wellness area
- Games room
One of Zell’s standout stays, this family-run pick packs in plenty of perks. First up on the facilities front there’s an excellent spa, with a sauna, steam room and menu of tempting treatments – just the thing for post-ski relaxation. And then there’s the heated outdoor pool, where you can soak in the warm water with views of snowy peaks all around.
The building itself is on the edge of town, so it’s good if you prefer more peaceful surroundings. As for looks, think modern alpine style. We’re talking log-burning fires and chairs that hang from the ceiling in the lobby and bar, and wood-panelled walls, cow print benches and tartan blankets in the bedrooms.

About Zell am See
Zell am See skiing
Set by Lake Zell, Zell am See and its bus-linked neighbour Kaprun make up the 'Europa Sport' region, with a total of 130km of runs, 80 of which are at Zell. The setting is one of Zell's biggest selling points, with lovely views of the lake from the medieval town and the slopes above. The ski area caters well for beginners intermediates keen on improving technique in the mostly tree-lined pistes. Advanced skiers have the Kitzsteinhorn glacier located down the road at nearby Kaprun.
Zell am See ski resort
The lakeside town has loads of activities for those not on skis or a board, with lively nightlife, decent restaurants and a full range of accommodation. It is good to check where you are staying in relation to the lifts, as there is a short free bus to access the slopes. For skiing, it is also worth exploring some of the other terrain in the area, like Saalbach, Bad Gastein and Schladming. Overall, Zell is a lovely spot for a winter holiday, with or without skiing.
The beautiful setting gives Zell am See a unique atmosphere not found in many Austrian resorts, and really sets it apart. Despite the smaller ski area, Zell am See remains one of Austria's top 5 resorts, and deservedly so.
