Water sports at lake Zell

Sailing and surfing in Zell am See

Hoist the sails and start your trip on Lake Zell! Would you like to finally learn to sail? Take the chance to do so during your holiday – Lake Zell is ready for a test run with a sailboat. Aspiring surfers can also learn to glide over the soft waves here. Local sailing and surfing schools with professionals show you how (but only if you need them to, of course). If you're already a pro with a sail or surfboard, you can simply enjoy the beautiful scenery and waves of Lake Zell.
