Background on Kaprun

Kaprun 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. ,

Multi Activity Holidays

It's a great resort to visit in summer as there are lots of activities - hiking, cycling, swimming, rafting, golf, climbing,watersports. For discounts on many of the activities look for a hotel which features the Zell Am See-Kaprun Summer card.

Summer skiing in Kaprun

The 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).

Wellness oasis TAUERN SPA

The TAUERN SPA is the base camp for all activities and excursions for all generations. In the water and sauna oasis measuring roughly 48,000 square meters, both grown-ups and children are in their element. From active relaxation in the 25-meter-long sports pool to the soothing spa treatments, guests are offered anything that relaxes body and soul. Children can go on an expedition in the children’s spa area “Kidstein” with activities ranging from a lively glissade through the 127-meter-long water slide “Schlinge-Schlange-Röhre” to the exploration of the adventure grottos to the conquest of the climbing wall.
