Kaprun Information & Property Market Summary

Kaprun is especially known for the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, open to skiers from October until July. There is skiing for all abilities and although truly challenging slopes are limited, it is best suited to adventurous intermediates; the off-piste is good. Visitors have a wider choice too, Zell is a short bus ride away offering a larger ski area and variety of piste options. Saalbach and its linked resorts are a little further, opening up one of Austria’s largest ski areas and all doable for a day trip. The town itself is attractive with typical Austrian charm, it is relatively quiet, with a year round population. The lake at Zell and surrounding areas are a fabulous visit in the summer.
