Climbing

Zell am See really is an action-packed area, with plenty of different outdoor activities to try out in addition to the superb climbing. Opportunities to get the adrenaline pumping include the cliffs in Zell am See and the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, the latter of which has two excellent climbing areas: the Rettenwand mountain, which boasts over 70 routes, and Gletscherseeplatten, with its smooth slate rock. The testing via ferrata at Höhenburg peak, which offers spectacular views across the Drossen and Moosersperre dams, should also be on your list: though be warned that it certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted.
