Both resorts in the Europa Sport Region really come alive at Christmas, and the Grinch himself would do well not to get caught up in the festive spirit. The advent market in Zell is usually a highlight of the season, where you can enjoy a warming glühwein as you wander round the stalls packed with festive treats. Follow this up by making a wish under the stars on the lake and perhaps your Christmas dreams will come true!
Kaprun in Christmas is like stepping into a bygone era. With a blanket of snow muffling the sounds of the 21st century, and the church glowing above the village under the moonlight, it’s easy to be seduced by the magic of the occasion.
If all you want for Christmas is snow, then you’re likely to wake up happy on Christmas morning. All of the slopes on the Schmitten are covered by snow canons and with the glacier at Kaprun one of the most snow sure in Europe, you’ll be able to spend the day itself skiing to your heart’s content.
