Background on KaprunKaprun looks like it is straight out of a picture book. It's a traditional Austrian village with a good selection of accommodations and restaurants. Overlooked by its 12th century castle there is plenty on offer for everyone. Skiing is possible for much of the year thanks to the glacier skiing area at an altitude of 2,900m. The nightlife is quieter than that of it's neighbour, Zell Am See. ,

Summer skiing in KaprunThe Kitzsteinhorn glacier at Kaprun is open for most of the year - it's the only glacial skiing area in the Salzburger Land and it's not only for skiers and snowboarders. On hot summer days, Austria’s only ICE ARENA cater for ice-cold family adventures on slides, at the snow beach, in the ice bar, with the toy snow cat as well as on the secured glacier trail. Even when the glacier is closed for skiing it's still possible to go up to the top and see the recently redevelopped viewing platforms - you can see the highest mountain in Austria from here (Grossglockner).
