Magical Water Worlds

One of the greatest treasures of the mountains is water. Its immense power and beauty manifests itself in natural landmarks such as blue lakes or thundering waterfalls. Visit, for example, the Kaprun High Mountain Reservoirs with the possibility of guided tours of the dam wall and a museum on site. In just under an hour, you can reach another attraction: the legendary Krimml Waterfalls. With a drop of 385 metres over three cascades, they are the highest waterfalls in Austria.

Kaprun Castle

Experience the Middle Ages with the whole family. The 12th century castle towers above Kaprun and is a very popular excursion destination and event location. The annual Medieval Festival is one of the event highlights.


History, nature, technology or customs: If you want to take a look behind the scenes of the Zell am See-Kaprun holiday region, then you can do so in range of museums. In the Kaprun Museum, you can explore the almost 4,000-year-old history of the village of Kaprun, while the National Park Museums on the Kitzsteinhorn and in Mittersill reveal the sheer natural wealth of the region. Fans of vintage cars, on the other hand, stop at Vötter's Vehicle Museum in Kaprun.

Sigmund Thun Gorge

Spectacular footbridges and stairs leading over thundering water, sparkling beauty and cooling on summer days: the Sigmund Thun Gorge near Kaprun impressively shows where the Kapruner Ache river has carved itself into the rock.

A Boat Trip on Lake Zell

Set sail on the MS Schmittenhöhe or the Kaiserin Elisabeth: take a boat trip on Lake Zell and marvel at the mountain panorama from the water! Departure from the Esplanade in Zell am See.

Tauern Spa

Spa and sauna with mountain view deluxe: The Tauern Spa Zell am See-Kaprun is your address for hours of wellness and aqua fun. With an area spreading across 20,000 m2, you will find a water and sauna world that will delight you in any weather.
