There is a magical place high up on the Rosenalm above Zell am Ziller - the Spruce Tree Castle. The spruce elves also wanted to expand their territory on the Rosenalm and added the new Spruce Lake!
Spruce Tree Castle
The Spruce Tree Castle (Fichtenschloss) on the Rosenalm in Zell am Ziller is a paradise for the whole family. Climbing, sliding, exploring the spruce wooden ball track and the hammock forest, discovering the water and sand play areas and enjoying the magnificent view – there is plenty to do! According to the legend, the castle was built by the mystical spruce sprites. When they got tired from building, they needed somewhere to rest and relax, so they expanded their habitat – to the delight of visitors – to include the new Spruce Lake!
From summer 2020, the Spruce Lake (Fichtensee) will be in full bloom and the ideal place to improve your wood-lake balance! An observation deck offers views of the surrounding mountains, a boat rental centre invites you to go for a row, and the relaxation nooks and swings are the perfect place to relax. The Spruce Lake offers attractions for visitors of all ages. The cosy, buggy-friendly ‘Alm walk’ links the Spruce Tree Castle with the Spruce Lake and the Rosenalmbahn mountain station. Additional highlights such as a stand-up paddle rental, diving platforms, shaded areas and much more complete the Spruce Lake area.
