So what's it like?
The family-run Hotel Fischerwirt is in a great location if you prefer to be close to all the action. Located 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.
The Fischerwirt has a good 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.
