Walking holidays in Zell am See - Pinzgau

Zell am See offers 400 km of marked trails, from gentle slopes for hobby hikers, over rugged cliffs for ambitious alpinists and, for top-fit hikers, the summit of Schmittenhöhe, the Maiskogel and the Kitzsteinhorn. Whatever hiking option you choose, you are surrounded by a natural mountain world of fabulous scenery. Why not go on a guided hike?
