Sports & Actives in Sommer

Experience mountains of surprises ...

The picturesque village of Kaprun, directly at the foot of the impressive glacier ski area, Kitzsteinhorn, is situated at the entrance of Hohe Tauern National Park. And above Zell am See atop the Schmittenhöhe you'll probably find the most beautiful view of the Alps. Our mountains await you, no matter whether you want to take full advantage of the sports opportunities or just simply revitalise your energy.
