The quick and easy transfers from both Salzburg and Munich airports make the Europa Sport Region a great choice for a New Year’s ski trip- you can easily spend Christmas at home with the extended family and then jet off for a snowy NYE with your nearest and dearest.
New Years in Zell starts long before you’ve made it down to the village. The Schnapps Hans Bar at the peak of the Schmitten regularly hosts an all-day affair- luckily you can catch the lifts down if you get a bit too caught up in proceedings!
The pedestrianised town centre at Zell really lends itself to a New Year’s celebration. Many of the bars have terraced areas for al fresco drinking so you’ll find the streets starting to fill up as the countdown nears. The locals are great value for a party, and are sure to make everyone feel involved.
For a quieter New Year’s, a stay in Kaprun is just what you’re looking for. After taking advantage of the world class skiing up on the Kitzsteinhorn during the day, a relaxed evening could be just what the doctor’s ordered. Relax with some glühwein in one of the quieter bars in the village, or go a step further and head to the nearby Tauern spa for some pampering- they might even be able to rustle up some champagne!
