Running trails around Lake Zell
A complete lap around the entirety of Lake Zell is 11km, therefore, you already need some stamina before you embark on this adventure. Passing the lake's Grand Hotel and lido, the first place you will reach is Thumersbach.
Then the route continues a couple of kilometres along the road to the southern edge of the lake. The scenery will be particularly pretty, as the route passes through a landscape conservation area.
Arriving at the western end, the rest of the route runs along the peaceful lake promenade back to Zell.
If you are looking for a running route that includes climbs, as a starting point we recommend a route through the Schmitten valley to the Schmittenbahn valley station and back again. On the way back, the Sonnbergweg takes you up a little further. You return to Zell am See via Sonnenbergstraße.
There are plenty of other challenging running routes in the mountains and around Zell. So that you do not strain your joints, you should always run wearing professional running shoes. In addition, we recommend functional running clothes. They quickly rid the body of sweat and prevent you cooling down too quickly.
