A swim holiday in Salzburger Land

Into the cool waters

The temperatures are climbing. Things are really hotting up down in the valley. Nestling between the mighty three-thousand metre mountains is Lake Zell, exerting its magical allure. A leap into its turquoise coloured waters really does you good. So fresh. So cold. And so clear, you might even want to drink it.

Activities during a swimming holiday in Kaprun

The main thing
is being close to the water

It is not just swimming that Lake Zell is great for. Hire a boat and chug your way towards sunset. Hoist the sails and glide across the glassy, shimmering surface of the water, taking in the mountains in the backdrop. Explore remote beaches on a stand-up paddle (SUP) and listen to the splish-splash of the lake. There are so many possibilities.

Happiness is free but priceless.
