A wonderful lake with stunning views.. around it are hotels and many activities.. there are paved walking paths encircling the lake suitable for all ages.. the view of mountains and forests around the lake enchants you..

Lovely at the Zell am See side
Mar 2020 • Couples
The lake looks lovely. I guess it’s a hive of activity in the summer but this time of the year it’s quiet.
It was clean and tidy and well rendered. Workers were sweeping leaves away and maintaining well. To be fair this is reflective of the whole area.

We walked around the whole lake however we were disappointed.
Why?
Well the Zell side is lovely but as you move either side you end up walking though housing or along a busy road with extremely limited view.
If id have known I would not have bothered!

nice place to visit
Feb 2020
In winter it gives a very special view on the lake and the mountains around the lake.
I really would recommend to visit this.
It's possible to walk around the lake. One part you can walk besides the water, the other side you have to walk on the street.

Nature at its best

Wonderful small lake in Austria near Salzburg. Plenty of activities in summertime, many winter sports options. Fine food nearby. Worth the detour. Boas that cross the lake in summertime.

Round Trip Boat Tour
Sep 2019
I have done this panorama boat trip in 2012 and found it very interesting with many facts learned, so I decided to do it again to see what has changed. I was disappointed with the lack of info given and think they could work on this..

I used something called the 'Summer Card' - [see your hotel to get one, maybe there are winter cards too?] and it gave me the trip for free, saving me E12. As a result I paid an upgrade of E5 to sit on the top deck. This gave me an opportunity to get a better view and have a coffee [which you pay for] while we cruised.

This round trip of the lake is best done first thing in the morning or later afternoon. Even though it was a warm day it was still quite blowy and cold when sitting up the top [late autumn] so bring a warm jacket and a hat / scarf. It is a very stable and safe vessel and the staff are nice. Sadly we were only given about 4 pieces of information as we went around the lake. They were spoken in English and German. The trip takes about 40mins. Be wary of wasps when ordering food or drink - there were many.

Worth doing for a relaxing ride and pleasant scenery.
