Holidays in Zell am See
Ever thought of a holiday in Austria? Here are some reasons why you should!
Well, it really does have it all, beautiful scenery, sun, snow, lakes mountains, and tourists get a very warm welcome. There is plenty to do both in summer and winter and it won't cost the earth either! Food, drink and transport are of a very high quality and a fair bit cheaper than in the uk too.Weather: The climate is one of extremes, but of course depends on altitude. In summer in the alpine valleys it can be very hot, and the water temperature in the alpine lakes can reach 24degrees, which is very pleasant for swimming and a host of water sports. From April through to October you can enjoy weather far better than in the UK! By Late october however, up on the higher mountain tops, the snow starts to fall in preparation for the long ski season.
What you can do: It is of course an outdoor persuits paradise with all year round skiing, walking, biking, climbing, white water rafting, horseriding etc all very easily accessible. But it's not just for the ultra active types, there are plenty of great tourist attractions to visit, castles, caves, waterfalls, glaciers, gorges and beautiful old towns and cities. The lakes also cater for families who like a seaside holiday with great lakeside bathing facilities and children are very well catered for with flumes, funparks, etc. The resort also has its own top class golf course, gliding, paragliding and flying school, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and championship ice rink.
