Along the Mayerhoferstraße to the railway underpass, then the Prielauweg – which has very little traffic – leads us past Prielau wedding chapel and its wonderful chateau. At the Zeller See, we continue along the lake promenade to the mountain town of Zell am See. After a short expedition through the town center, we continue to Schüttdorf and around the Zeller See until, after passing Maishofen’s swimming beach, we come to the hospital, from where we head back via Dechantshofen to Maishofen.
Time: ca. 5 hrs.
While the crystal-clear lake is the ideal spot for a refreshing dip in the cool water in summer, it is also the perfect place for a hike across the solid sheet of ice in winter. Here you can gather renewed strength, breathe in fresh mountain air, and enjoy a new attitude towards life with those idyllic views of a snowy winter wonderland.
Enjoy one of the winter hiking paths along the crest of the Schmittenhöhe at an elevation of around 2,000 m. With magnificent views of the snowy mountain peaks of the Hohe Tauern and Limestone Alps, and led by an expert guide, this is an experience certain to leave you with lasting memories.
Time: ca. 2 hrs.
