Water and bathing delights around Kaprun & surroundings

Water sports & recreation at the Zeller See and beyond

The Zeller See is the focal point of the Zell am See-Kaprun region. Here, recreation seekers and fans of water sports find the ideal setting for a successful summer getaway. On a hot summer’s day, immerse yourself in the cool waters, swim a few laps back and forth, or take a boat ride and bounce across the waves - you will sense that feeling of peace and relaxation that only water can bring.

Fans of aquatic sports find just what the doctor ordered

Whether sailing, surfing, stand-up paddling or on water skis - nothing stands in the way of an activity-packed day in SalzburgerLand. Or perhaps you would prefer to go fishing, or “make like a fish” and dive deep below the surface? So, be sure to pack your fishing rod and flippers, for as an angler or a diver, you, too, are going to discover your personal Eldorado on and in the Zeller See. Clear visibility, water teeming with fish and water pure enough to drink, all guarantee outdoor enjoyment beyond compare.

Canyoning and rafting

Experience the power of impressive floods and paddle through the drifts: During canyoning through ravines and rafting or kayaking on the rivers of the Pinzgau you will find a unique experience in nature. Thanks to professional accompaniment, even beginners can take part in the courses.

Wet excursion destinations

Maybe the most spectacular waterfalls of Austria can be found in Krimml, about 50 kilometres from Kaprun. Standing on the edge of the thundering waterfalls you will feel the refreshing and healing effect of the small water drops. Those who are interested in how hydropower is produced can visit the high mountain reservoirs of Kaprun.

Magic summer moments

In summer you can enjoy and relax close to the water, for example at the Zeller Seefeste and the Zeller Seezauber. Or how about a mystic hike through the Sigmund Thun Klamm in Zell am See-Kaprun in romantic torchlight?
