At eye level with Kitzbühel, St. Moritz or Ischgl. Zell am See has made a name for itself as a summer and winter sports resort since the 1960s. Today almost 10,000 people live in the small town of Zell am See, at 758 m above sea level. A real "climatic health resort", as they used to say. But this does the mountain town an injustice. With its shopping mile in the historic old town, the Viennese coffee house flair of the imperial and royal era and the casino, it presents itself both sophisticated and youthful at the same time. Every corner is fascinating. The location in the middle of the Mittelpinzgau valley, the valley landscape with the rivers Saalach and Salzach creates a vastness that touches the heart. Many people claim that the Zeller Furche is the most beautiful trough valley of the Pinzgauer Grasberge.
