Water lovers also get their money’s worth in the outdoor swimming pools in the Zell am Ziller leisure park, in Krimml and in the Kristallbad Wald. Whether you want to splash around in one of the outdoor pools, relax on a pedal boat ride or take an action-packed rafting or canyoning tour – there is something for everyone here.
Spruce Lake on the Rosenalm
Spruce Lake doesn’t only captivate water lovers with all it has to offer. A buggy-friendly circular walk connects the Spruce Tree Castleto the new Spruce Lake. A viewing platform offers a panorama of the surrounding mountains, a boat hire invites you to row on the lake, and the relaxation nooks and swings are just perfect for relaxing. Other highlights such as stand-up paddle hire, diving platforms and the Pixie Cove – a shallow water zone for little ones to splash around in – round off the varied offer. Spruce Lake is the perfect place to improve your wood-lake balance. The food truck also caters for those little pangs of hunger between meals.
