    The family-run Hotel Fischerwirt is in a great location if you prefer to be close to all the action. Sitting in the pedestrianised centre of Zell am See, you can either be at the lake's edge in just a few minutes or on a gondola heading towards one of many mountain trails.

    It has a strong reputation for its food, serving a nice mix of regional and international dishes.

    The rooftop terrace has been attractively refurbished and is a wonderful place to really appreciate the beauty of the area.

    If you wish to indulge in a little pampering then for an extra charge, you can head over to the neighbouring Hotel Romantik and use their spa and wellness centre.

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.
