The Hotel Traube was recently refurbished and this popular small hotel is all the better for it - they've really made the most of the historic building and it's placement right in the centre of Zell's pedestrian zone, and it's great value too! It's known for having a friendly atmosphere and delicious food (you really have to go to the free weekly fondue night).

 

There's a trendy in-house bar/brasserie area that's also very popular. But if you're looking for something more laid-back, head to the sauna and relaxation area which is open from 4pm until 9pm each evening. This is the perfect choice for those who really want to be right in the centre of things.

About the resort

With lively nightlife, picturesque scenery and great skiing for all levels, Zell am See is one of Austria's best loved lakeside resorts. On the mountain, it has a nice mix of runs that are perfect for complete beginners to the advanced. It's a fairly large ski area as well with 138km of runs with great snow conditions.

 

Head over to Kaprun (15 to 20mins away by bus) and you'll have guaranteed snow on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. A trip there is covered on your Zell lift pass too, bt transport isn't.

 

 

When you're not exploring the area, head into the Old Town and you'll be absolutely charmed by its magical medieval setting. The town is awash with cafés, bars and restaurants suiting all different budgets and tastes. Après starts on the mountain at around 3pm, the Berghotel is a good place to kick off!
