Kaprun is a picturesque traditional Austrian village, with a decent selection of restaurants and accommodation. It has lots of character and no concrete high rise buildings. Nightlife is quieter than in neighbouring Zell, but is still varied and great fun.

In winter Kaprun is the ideal resort for beginners and advanced skiers alike. The Kitzsteinhorn glacier guarantees snow and skiing all year round. There is also lots to do in the summer with amazing walking and climbing, miles of dedicated cycle paths, two excellent golf courses and water sports on the lake just to name a few.

Being only 75 minutes drive from Salzburg international airport means that you will arrive in Kaprun fresh and ready for your holiday.

There are regular market days in neighbouring Zell am See and parades and processions throughout the year. Austria is a country very set in tradition and customs and Summer, in particular, is a great time for quirky village and town events.

Whatever time of the year you visit you will find there is plenty to do, see and visit.
