Zell am See, Austria
Nestled within the magnificent Schmittenhöhe mountain, the picture-perfect town of Zell am See has an unmistakable Austrian charm that sets it a world apart from modern, purpose-built resorts.
With its iconic Grand Hotel perched directly above Lake Zell, narrow streets lined with Victorian lamp posts and glittering fairy lights adorning shops and chalets, Zell am See has quickly become a hot spot for those with an eye for style.
Skiers of all levels arrive for Zell am See’s 138km of varied tree-lined pistes, but usually return for its unbeatable views and unforgettable atmosphere.
Christmas is a particularly special time in Zell, with advent markets, street processions and traditional Austrian fare taking over the resort, resulting in nothing less than an absolute cracker of a festive celebration.
