Great days out in Zell am See-Kaprun

There are so many sights and attractions in Zell am See-Kaprun and the Hohe Tauern National Park just waiting to be discovered, from breathtaking rock formations to medieval buildings and outdoor adventure parks high in the mountains.


The Krimmler Waterfalls are the highest in Austria, with the water tumbling 380 metres from top to bottom. Indeed, they are among the highest in Europe. They are situated in the Hohe Tauern  National Park and are well worth a visit, especially on a hot summer's day.
