If you are looking for a winter sports alternative to skiing, then ice skating is a great option.
The holiday region offers two natural ice rinks. The Kaprun ice skate rink is situated directly opposite the local fire brigade station and is open daily from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. The second ice skating venue is Lake Zell. When frozen, you can enjoy ice skating as well as other ice sports such as curling on the lake.
Another popular winter sport in Zell am See is curling.
When Lake Zell is frozen, you can practise this exciting precision sport in a picturesque setting.
Here you can play on the ice with family or friends or challenge some of the local curling players to a competition. In any case, you’ll never experience a dull moment
For those looking for that extra adrenaline kick, the holiday region offers something truly special: ice climbing. Frozen waterfalls are not just beautiful to behold, climbing them is now a popular winter sport.
You can also learn how to climb these natural spectacles under the guidance of a certified guide who will teach you how to handle the equipment provided (crampons and ice picks) and hone in your technique. Please be aware that good physical condition is required to practise this sport. Your reward will be a unique nature adventure.
