Hotel Daxer, Zell am See

The family-run Daxer has changed a lot since it opened in 1962, but each generation of owners has focused on making sure their customers are always the priority.

Hotel Daxer

It’s been extended several times over the years, to add more rooms and facilities, but you need only look at the chalet-style exterior to see that the Daxer has kept it touch with its traditional roots. The cosy Alpine atmosphere blends with true Austrian hospitality to create a home-from-home feel that keeps people coming back year after year.

Other modern additions to the hotel include the heated indoor pool and the wellness area, which has two Finnish saunas, s herbal sauna, steam room, infrared cabin, relaxation room and fitness room. There’s also a small bar and lounge area, and a play area for kids.

You certainly won’t go hungry at the Daxer. The day starts with a plentiful breakfast buffet, offering everything from eggs and bacon to fruit and cereal. When you get back from skiing, you can help yourself to afternoon snacks, including things like cake and pizza – just save some room for the excellent 4-course dinners. And throughout the day, you can stop for free tea, coffee and soft drinks.

When you do make it out the door, it’s just 5 minutes’ walk to the Schmittenhöhebahn and Sonnenalmbahn cable cars, and the TrassXPress gondola. Zell am See itself is around 25 minutes’ walk downhill or a 5 minutes' taxi ride. Or during the day you can take the local ski bus that operates until 7pm.

Zell am See

Highlights

  • Beautiful lakeside town
  • Plenty of tree line skiing
  • Kaprun's glacier close to resort

With fantastic views, it’s no wonder Zell am See is a favourite year round. Thanks to its classic 19th-century architecture, scenic lake and a mountain backdrop there’s always a photo opportunity nearby. And in winter you can add a buzzing atmosphere and a load of varied skiing to that too. From the town centre it’s easy to grab the CityXpress gondola up the Schmittenhöhe. Here, you’ve got wide pistes with those great views and plenty of mountain huts. And you’ve always got free ski buses to whisk you about – including over to the neighbouring glacier resort of Kaprun.

On the shores of the Lake Zell within the shadow of the beautiful Hohe Tauern National Park, Zell am See is a great ski resort. Especially popular are the tree-lined runs that dominate the lower part of the mountain. Thanks to friendly slopes, a traffic-free centre and plenty of non-ski activities, Zell am See is a great choice for families and intermediate skiers. The car-free town centre has a wintry picture-postcard feel about it, with quaint cafés and restaurants alive with both locals and tourists.

During the height of winter the lake often freezes over, enabling you to walk from one side to the other – and even try some curling or skating too. If you feel like taking a break from skiing you can try plenty of activities including snowshoeing, cross-country and Nordic walking.

Plus the Kitzsteinhorn glacier is easily accessible by free local ski bus - all covered by your Zell am See-Kaprun lift pass.
