Environmental Protection Between the glacier, mountains, lake and Hohe Tauern National Park

As a leading company in the Zell am See- Kaprun region, we see it as our responsibility to set a good example in protecting our environment and bringing the beauty of our nature closer to our guests, customers and employees alike.

Glacier, mountain & lake, this trinity represents the core of our tourism region. Take the opportunity to look out the window or, even better, step outside.

natural surroundings of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, the Schmittenhöhe mountain, and Lake Zell's drinking-quality water.

The alpine nature is within reach. Lake Zell is approximately 200 meters away from the FPCC and is an ideal place to take a short break and a deep breath. From the shore, your eyes will surely be drawn to the 3,203 meter high Kitzsteinhorn mountain towering over Kaprun.

Just a few hundred meters away from the FPCC, you’ll find the cable car station, which will take you up to the Schmittenhöhe. Once you reach almost 2,000 meters, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of 30 peaks which are higher than 3,000 meters and discover many beautiful hiking trails, go for leisurely walks, and savor some regional delicacies in rustic huts.
