#1 See the world from above – and dine deliciously
What would a trip to the mountains be without decent food? Not so fine. That’s why the SalzburgerLand explorers Kenneth and Jesper set out immediately on the day of arrival to the Mystic Mountain BBQ on the Kitzsteinhorn. 2,500 meters above sea level, the two were received by the sounds of Alpine horns. The food is eaten directly from a stone plate at this BBQ. A full-bodied experience!
#2 Look for a cosy place to stay
A skiing holiday means also having a cosy headquarters that warms you up again after a cold day on the mountain. Kenneth and Jesper stayed at the Tirolerhof. In the 4*S Hotel, every wish is fulfilled between waking up and going to bed. And in between? Head into the spa area for a relaxing massage, for example.
#3 Adrenaline kick: Paragliding with a view
Whoever wants to see the world from above must be brave. With a paraglide jump from the Schmittenhöhe, Kenneth and Jesper have shown that they have no fear of gravity. It was exciting nonetheless: “This time the first thing we did after arriving at the airport was touching the sky again – paragliding!” This was such a crazy experience, really insane but truly chilled at the same time, luckily we didn’t have much time for breakfast that morning………. This should be on YOUR bucket list!!”
One day you drifting on frozen lakes in Sweden with Mercedes Benz the next you jumping off moutains in Austria. @jesperpalermo in front paragliding with @paraglidingzellamsee. Thx @dasfalkenstein for a great jump on day one🤘🏼 Specs: 1/2500 Sec f/2.8 ISO 100 Canon EOS 5D MK IV Canon 16-35mm 2.8 #salzburgerland #zellamseekaprun
#4 Trying out an Alpine roller-coaster
Roller-coaster in summer? That’s old hat! In winter, neither Kenneth nor Jesper have ever bolted down a snow-covered mountain. The Maisiflitzer offers this special experience in Zell am See-Kaprun. But beware – at the beginning it looks slower than it actually is. Make sure you pack warm gloves and a hat. By the way: you can only carry a GoPro, other cameras are prohibited.
#5 Skiing and Snowboarding: boards that mean the world
Where else, if not in Zell am See-Kaprun? Here, there are two great ski resorts available. On the one hand, the Kitzsteinhorn with its many slopes varying in difficulty. And on the other, the Schmittenhöhe. Kenneth and Jesper had the perfect skiing weather, a real “Dream Day”, as they strapped on skis and snowboard and together with ski guide Niko carved down the slopes.
#6 See the ICE CAMP on the Kitzsteinhorn
It’s quite interesting what you can learn in the ICE-CAMP on the Kitzsteinhorn. From January to April, this is a suitable meeting point at the summit. What is there to experience here? Three interconnected igloos, each 12 metres in diameter, 60 tons of ice, an ice exhibition by ice artist Max Seibald, the famous ice bar and a car.
#7 Selfie at 3,029 metres
There are places which force you to take a Selfie – such as the panorama platform on the Kitzsteinhorn. At 3,029 metres above sea level, it must look quite wonderful and this is confirmed with a view from above Zell am See-Kaprun – with this view there is no place for everyday problems. Jesper and Kenneth were enthusiastic:
I would recommend the Kitzsteinhorn to everyone. I believe I have never had such an outstanding view in my whole life.
#8 Taking photos above the fog at sunrise
Although the beds at the Tirolerhof are pretty comfortable, Kenneth and Jesper got up early to see the sunrise on the mountain. And it paid off. That moment when the sun touches the mountain tops – indescribable!
Waking up, looking out the window – All Grey! – A small drive and you find yourself on top of a mountain looking down on the beautiful fog, curving up and around the pines. Scenic shit! – Jesper
#9 Icicle plucking on the Klammsee Lake
Who remembers from childhood the struggle for the biggest icicles? One thing is certain, those who would like a chance at the title, go to Zell am See-Kaprun and specifically to the Klammsee Lake. At the entrance to the Sigmund-Thun-Gorge, one finds many icicles. They are not only beautiful for children to look at, but also photographers such as Kenneth and Jesper can spend lots of time here. If you walk on a bit further, you can observe ice climbers. Exciting!
