Local activities

SUMMER

The Zell am See region is a beautiful summer resort. The lake has a number of beaches and various water-sports can be undertaken in numerous locations around the lake. Remarkably the water temperature can reach up to 22 °C. If you wish to relax and gaze at the mountains from out on the water, then a scenic cruise or ferry crossing on lake Zell is a beautiful way to spend an hour or two. In peak season you can also take a night-time ‘twilight cruise’ around the lake accompanied with Accordian music from ’Harry’.

Fusch itself lies in the ‘Hohe Tauern National Park‘. Here you will find wonderful meadows and gorges with wild flowers and waterfalls. The whole area is a paradise for Nordic walkers, ramblers and mountain bikers , as there are seemingly unlimited trails to explorer. Bike rentals are available in many locations including here in the village. ‘Tettenwand‘ and ‘Gletscherseeplatte‘ rock faces offer some excellent climbing for both novices and experts.

Just an hours drive in any direction and you will find some of the most amazing attractions such as; the largest ice caves in the world at ‘Werfen‘, one of the highest waterfalls in the world at ‘Krimml‘, the ‘Grossglockner high alpine road‘, Salt & Copper mines and the historical area of ‘Berchtesgaden‘.

For the more adventurous, there are activities such as white water rafting, canyoning, and rock climbing. And if that still isn’t enough then why not pop down to the light airfield in Schüttdorf, where paragliding and other airborne activities are to be found.

Our Chalet is situated directly on the Grossglocknerstrasse. This famous alpine road which leads you into the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park and to the highest mountain in Austria, the ‘Grossglockner’ (3,798m) and its glacier the ‘Pasterze‘. You will have the most amazing driving and nature experience of a special kind on 48 kilometres of high alpine road with 36 hair-pin bends, and an altitude ascent to 2,504 metres! Why not combine the trip with a wander around the Wildlife park at ‘Ferleiten‘. Located 6km from the Chalet, just before the toll road starts. Here you will meet some of the animal inhabitants of the region such as Bison, Bears, Lynx, Wolves, Deer, and the Ibex Goat, which is a type of mountain goat, unique to the Alps.

As our guest you have free unlimited access to the public heated outdoor pool, as well as tennis courts, a football pitch and a volleyball court all within 100meters.

In nearby Kaprun, the ‘Tauern Spa’ newly open in November 2010 has offered increased wellness and relaxation options all year round. Also located there in Kaprun is one of the finest golf courses in Austria which offers 36 holes, surrounded by the most stunning of views.

The Glemm valley, running from East to West from the top of the Zeller See is home to the hochseilpark which is Austria’s biggest high rope course, as well as the Glemmy off-road park where you can race Quad bike‘s or Buggy‘s.

‘Bruck-Fusch‘ station offers brilliant connections to both Salzburg and Innsbruck. Salzburg is one of Europe’s most appealing cities, blessed with a stunning location by the banks of the Salzach river and surrounded by glorious scenery. The medieval Hohensalzburg fortress, overlooks the narrow cobbled streets of the old town, where amongst the quaint craft shops and typical Austrian coffeehouses, you will find some serious shopping to be done. Church steeples, Baroque and Rococo domes rise above historic rooftops, and courtyards. You may prefer to seek out a traditional beer hall for a glass of the local creamy-topped Steigl beer, while culture lovers can visit the house of Mozart, Salzburg’s most famous son, along with many museums and galleries. Salzburg was also the setting for the ever-popular musical the Sound of Music, and every summer the city hosts the prestigious Salzburg Festival, with a packed programme of opera, drama and concerts. Innsbruck, the Capital of Austrian Tyrol is a charming historic city in the Inn Valley, surrounded by forested mountain scenery. The compact city centre is a delight to walk around and also has an extensive tram system. Innsbruck’s old town is full of ornate baroque mansions, museums and medieval churches, along with the splendid Imperial Palace and the gilded ‘Golden Roof’ pavilion in its central square. The city is a fantastic option for those wanting to combine culture with outdoor activities, as cable cars and excellent transport links make it easy to visit the nearby mountains for walking and hiking.

It‘s worth mentioning that if you are planning on doing and seeing a lot whilst on holiday here, then it‘s definitely worth checking out the savings which can be made by purchasing either the Salzburgerland or Hohetauern Cards. Have a look at our useful links page for more information.

WINTER

Here in Fusch there is a ski slope suitable for children or beginners, on this slope there are two lifts, one small practice lift going up to 80m and for the more proficient learner one reaching 280m. Ski-school also takes place here with the office in the Village.

In the winter there is a free ski bus service which stops 25 metres from the front door of the Chalet. This takes you to the nearby ski areas in Zell am See and Kaprun. There is ample parking (even in high season), both at the Areitbahn cable car giving you access to the Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See (10 min drive), or the Maiskogel/ Kitzsteinhorn, in Kaprun (15 minutes’ drive), where snow is guaranteed from November through to the end of May due to the Glacier. The ‘Skicircus’ region of Saalbach, Hinterglemm & Leogang is also in close proximity. Combined these three areas offer over 90 lifts and more than 330km of pistes.

After a tiring day on the slopes it goes without saying there is always plenty of Aprés Ski going on.

Cross-country skiing, Tobogganing, Curling, Snow Tubing, Horse-drawn Sleigh rides and both indoor and outdoor ice skating are also very close by.

If you fancy trying your hand at something new there is an outdoor ice go-kart racing track in Leogang. Snowmobil-city in Viehhofen just 25mins away gives you the opportunity to drive a skidoo or even a piste-basher.

If you fancy a break from the slopes then Innsbruck and Salzburg are easily accessible by train from the local Station ‘Bruck-Fusch’.

The newly opened Tauernspa in Kaprun (15 mins drive), with it‘s warm pools, sauna village, and treatment centre offer perfect relaxation after a hard day on the slopes.

In the evenings there are weekly Tyrolean nights held in our village, and once a week we hold our own ‘Taste of Austria‘ nights, where we introduce you to some of the local food & drink specialities with Accordian music provided by our very own ‘Harry‘. If your after something more lively, then Zell am See has plenty of restaurants, bars & clubs to keep you going until the early hours.
