Plan your Holiday:

Winter in the Hotel St. Georg Zell am See

Your winter vacation in the High Tauern

A winter vacation doesn’t necessarily have to be a skiing vacation. Here in the region Zell am See-Kaprun much more than slopes is waiting for you.

Cross-country skiing in Zell am See-Kaprun

Cross-country ski trails between glacier, mountain and lake: cross-country skiers will be excited about more than 300km trails, among them the 50km long “Pinzgau-trail” through the valley of Pinzgau. A special attraction are the higher trails on the Schmittenhöhe and Kitzsteinhorn.

Cross-country skiing is possibly by night too. The night trail in Zell am See-Kaprun is illuminated until 10.00 pm.
