Kitzbuhel and Zell Am See
Our excursion today begins with a journey through the beautiful Brixen Valley to the famous Alpine town of Kitzbühel. Once a medieval settlement, it’s now one of Europe’s prettiest mountain resorts with a host of stylish shops and cafes and a cable car which will take you to the top of the Hahnenkamm Mountain (payable locally). From here, your tour continues to the picture-postcard Austrian resort of Zell am See. With a lake on one side and an impressive mountain hinterland on the other you’ll get your fill of scenic views today.
