Freedom on two wheels

& Biking.

No matter what your cycling needs are, we have something for you. From leisurely family bike tours to the 90 km professional route of Ironman 70.3 Zell am See-Kaprun, everything is included.

With a mountain bike or e-bike, you can conquer the mountain world in summer, rest at cozy huts, and enjoy the spectacular panorama. For those seeking extra thrills, choose the freeride trails on the Kitzsteinhorn and Maiskogel and master fast descents.

If you arrive with your own bike, we have a secure storage place in our bike garage, including a service station for minor repairs if needed. There are also numerous bike shops to rent a suitable bike (e.g., Intersport Shop, 4 minutes' walk from the hotel).

The bike routes of the entire region are well marked. To make the right choice, you will find brochure material in the hotel or the cycling tour map with descriptions online on the Zell am See tourism association website.

fascination with
the mountain world


The mountains have always exerted a special fascination on us. They are a challenge, a source of inspiration, and places of power. With us, you can enjoy the entire spectrum of alpine possibilities: Feel The Alpine Act.

Do what you like best: test your limits on challenging peak tours, exhaust yourself completely on demanding day hikes, or simply enjoy the panorama on easy alpine hikes! There are numerous routes for families that are also excellent for children.

If you want to start at a certain elevation, you can overcome the first meters with the mountain lifts, which are mostly in operation in summer as well. Numerous mountain huts and alpine pastures invite you to rest and enjoy the best regional specialties.


Enjoy a round of golf with a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains. The Zell am See – Kaprun Golf Club is nestled between the peaks of Kitzsteinhorn and Schmittenhöhe and fits perfectly into the natural landscape. The 36-hole golf course features two championship courses that guarantee a varied game.
