Adventure in the water at the Zeller See

Active swimming holidays at this alpine lake

Zeller See glitters and sparkles like a sea of a thousand crystals. Crystal clear, deep blue and simply sublime, Zeller See is located in the middle of the charming alpine village of Zell am See. Both impressive and powerful, the mountain lake reflects the majestic Hohe Tauern mountains. But Zeller See is so much more than just beautiful. The lake is a focal point for sports fans and nature lovers from around the entire world. In addition to the variety of activities you can do, Zeller See is also home to colourful, thriving flora and fauna. At 3.8 km long, 1.5 km wide, and up to 68 m deep, Zeller See is one of the few remaining witnesses of the last Ice Age of around 10,000-16,000 years ago.

After a long hike or bike tour through Zell am See, there is nothing better than a refreshing dip in the cool water of the Zeller See. "Splish splash" – jump in! Immerse yourself in the inspiring fresh water of the Zeller See and feel reborn after a bath in this alpine lake. A swim in this lake is guaranteed to be refreshing thanks to the water temperature of around 24° C. Enjoy the water and just go with the flow on your swimming holiday.
