Eastern Alps Sights

Schmittenhöhe

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Updated 08/18/2014

Fodor's Review

A cable car will take you virtually from the center of Zell am See up to the Schmittenhöhe, at 6,453ft, for a far-reaching panorama that takes in the peaks of the Glockner and Tauern granite ranges to the south and west and the very different limestone ranges to the north. You can have lunch at the Berghotel at the top. Four other cable-car trips are available up this mountain, part of the ski lift system in the winter but open in the summer for walkers and mountain bikers.
