Zell am See is the capital of the Zell am See district in the Austrian state of Salzburg. It is the second largest city in the Pinzgau with about 10,000 inhabitants. Zell is nestled between the Schmittenhöhe and the waterfront of one of the cleanest European swimming lakes, Lake Zell. The town was founded by monks from Salzburg in 740 as Cella in Bisonzio. With its medieval center, it creates a calm, rustic, and adorned atmosphere - somewhat typically Austrian - that attracts guests to fill the 14,000 beds almost constantly. Kaprun is a smaller village that is mostly known for its year-round skiable glacier, its Roman castle from the 12th century (one of the largest ruins of the Pinzgau), and its two large water reservoirs. The two villages have a fascinating and fairly priced program of sportive, cultural, and just simply entertaining offerings throughout the year which include skiing, snowboarding, cross country (about 200 kilometers/125miles of trails), snow hiking, snowshoeing, tobogganing (on slides, truck tires, and boats), ice sailing, ice skating, hockey, sleigh rides, llama hikes, ballooning, paragliding, ice climbing, swimming in- and outdoors, horseback riding, concerts, fests, festivals, theater, musicals, exhibitions - and of course, the regular après-ski activities found in restaurants, bars, pubs, and nightclubs. Overall, the resort has an impressive off-piste program for any taste, but still is mainly centered on the sportive aspect-skiing.
