Events in Zell am See

Event highlights in the Zell am See-Kaprun region

The Sporthotel Alpin is in a perfect location near to the centre of Zell am See and is the ideal place to spend a holiday that is rich in variety. There is a wealth of cultural and sports events on offer in Zell am See throughout the year for both locals and guests.

Children appreciate the entertainment that is on offer in summer in Zell am See just as much as adults, from the “Sommernachtsfeste” Summer Night festivals every Wednesday through July and August, the magic “Zeller Seezauber” by the lake, through to the festivals of traditional dress and other events in the town and on the mountain. Throughout the year, whether summer or winter, it is mainly the sports events that captivate spectators, such as the Ironman 70.3, ski and snowboard events, and beach volleyball tournaments. The lake and mountain certainly provides plenty of entertainment of the highest standard.
