This relaxed guesthouse has been converted from apartments, so the rooms are modern and comfortable.
The Edelweiss' location is great too. It's just outside the centre of Zell am See - great for a stroll around the town - and just a snowball's throw from the lakeside. For getting to the lifts you have the choice of an eight minute walk up to the City Xpress gondola for access to the Schmittenhöhe, or a couple of minutes to the ski bus that can also take you over to the nearby Kitzsteinhorn glacier.
Back at the Edelweiss - there's a small basement wellness area with Finnish sauna, steam room and a free juice and tea bar in the relaxation room.
You've got the choice of sticking with bed and breakfast giving you the chance to explore Zell am See's great restaurants - alternatively get your meals sorted before you go and upgrade to half board and eat at a nearby restaurant.

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.
