Showcases of Nature
Showcases of Nature
Sometimes, you can fall in love at first sight. For example when looking down from one of the many mountain peaks into the valley or something like that. Or the views from one of the many traditional Alpine lodges. Some of the local innkeepers themselves are shrouded in legend.
Krimml Waterfall
Krimml Waterfall
The Krimml Waterfall is the world’s fifth highest waterfall with an impressive drop height of 380 m. With approx. 350,000 visitors each year, this is one of Austria’s most visited sights. A footpath created by the Austrian Alpine Association (OeAV) leads directly to this breath-taking showcase of nature, offering unique views.
Grossglockner High Alpine Road
Grossglockner High Alpine Road
Standing at 3,798 m tall, the Grossglockner is Austria’s highest mountain as well as being one of the highest peaks in the Eastern Alps. The construction of the Grossglockner High Alpine Road brought a new dimension to this majestic peak. As a popular excursion, it is the very epitome of an impressive natural experience for many people.

Lake Zell

A SUMMER BATHING PARADISE

As the temperatures soar in summer, so too the desire for water and relaxation increases. Adventure pools, giant slides and sprinkler showers are the perfect choice. The region’s beaches offer a symbiosis of relaxation and entertainment from June to September - set within a beautiful natural setting before the picturesque Alpine panorama.

 

CAST OFF AND FULL-STEAM AHEAD!

If you want to view the mountains in comfort from the water, a panoramic boat trip or crossing on the Zeller See lake is just the thing. Or if you fancy having the boat to yourself, you can charter one of our four ships for a celebration on the water.

 

CROSSING DEEP WATERS WITH A STIFF BREEZE

Lake Zell is the ideal water surface for learning and perfecting your maritime skills. It is no coincidence that some of the sailing greats, such as Olympic winner Hans-Peter Steinacher, come from the “birthplace of top-class sport”, Zell am See-Kaprun. At the sailing schools on-site, you can complete the internationally recognised sailing certificate. This ensures that there is nothing stopping you from making your own journey across the “big pond” by boat.

High-speed leisure fun on the Biberg in Saalfelden. Over 60 bends over a length of 1.6 km and 345 m altitude offer plenty of energy and lots of fun.

Kaprun Power Station Reservoirs

Your journey up to the high mountain reservoirs begins at the Kesselfall-Alpenhaus. A bus will transport you through the Lärchwand Tunnel to the valley station for the Lärchwand inclined elevator at 1,209 m above sea level.

The journey on Europe’s largest open inclined elevator is the first highlight of your journey through the mountains of Kaprun. You will glide virtually noise-free past the mixed beech forests and craggy mountain sides to the mountain station at 1,640 m above sea level.

At the mountain station for the Lärchwand inclined elevator, close to the Limberg lock, buses await to take you past the Wasserfallboden reservoir and Fürthermoar-Alm and up to the Mooserboden reservoir at 2,040 m above sea level.

During one of the ongoing tours of the dam walls, you can find out more about how the water is used to produce this “white gold” - electricity. The “Electricity & Ice Adventure World” is located between the Mooserboden and Drossen dam walls. Here you can find out about the world of glaciers and the history of the power station.
