Why Choose to Ski in Kaprun?

On the edge of Hohe Tauern National Park in the Austrian Alps, Kaprun perfectly captures the magic of skiing in Austria.

Southwest of Salzburg and just a stone’s throw from neighbouring resort Zell am See, you can experience some of the best skiing that Europe has to offer, right in the heart of the Austrian Alps.

At the foot of the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier which touches 3203m above sea level, you can find excellent conditions for skiing all season long at this charming high-altitude ski area. 

There are so many incredible sights waiting to be discovered in Kaprun. Kaprun Castle is a fortress thought to date from the 12th century, and its medieval battlements stand testament to a bygone age.

Not only is there an abundance of stunning architecture in the region of Kaprun, there are also many lakes and rivers which boast outstanding natural beauty. Klammsee is a must-see, and the reservoirs at Kaprun Hochgebirgsstauseen and Stausee Mooserboden are something to behold at all times of the year.

For an exciting change of pace from skiing, try the Alpine Coaster Maisiflitzer Kaprun, a mountainside rollercoaster. Find it at Familienberg Maiskogel, a family adventure park which will ensure that you have fun both on and off your skis.

If you are looking for a ski holiday that is both strenuous and active and relaxing, Kaprun could be a great option for you. The resort plays host to the impressive Tauern Spa, where you will be able to indulge in wellness spa treatments such as a salt bath, massages, facials or even their 80-minute Polynesian Spa Ritual. It could be just what you need after a vigorous day’s skiing.

So if you are feeling the call of the Austrian mountains for your ski holidays this year, consider Kaprun as your resort of choice - there is something for all the family and 61 km of pistes waiting for you!
