The region Großglockner-Zellersee next to the nationalpark Hohe Tauern - home of the hotel Lampenhäusl - your holiday basecamp for unforgettable days.
If you ask experienced tourists about the perfect holiday-region or destination, they probably would say: “it should be central and easily accessible, it should have nice nature, maybe a lake and mountains would be nice too and yeah, the people there should be as nice as possible - so here it is - we talk about the region Großglockner-Zellersee.
The region once was called “Europe sport region” and we think that name was a real good one, as it is exactly that. We have sports and mountains in the purest beauty of nature. The region is embedded in the “Pinzgau”, which is the “Gau” with the highest mountains all over Salzburg.
In the north you can find the stone-mountains around Lofer, Leogang and the famous Hochkönig to the east. In the south of the region there are the Hohen Tauern with their world of snow and ice and up to 30 peaks higher than 3.000 meters at one glance. In the middle there are the towns and villages of Zell am See and Kaprun with all their attractions and sights. The most important and most famous is the highest peak of the country, the Großglockner. In addition there is the world famous Großglockner Hochalpenstraße, which brings visitors right into the world of the mountains.
The hotel Lampenhäusl is in the village of Fusch and this village is named “a. d. Glocknerstraße”, which means it is “at the Glocknerstraße”. Fusch is at the gate to the nationalpark Hohe Tauern and the famous high alpine road runs straight through the village. This road brings you up the mountains within minutes or hours. It is up to you if you want to enjoy the road from your car or if you want to try it on your bike or bicycle. Every summer the road is released from the masses of snow in order to open it in mid may.
Whether you come with your bike, your bicycle, your hiking boots or your skis - the region around the Großglockner and the Zellersee offers everything you want and need. And at the end there is still the hotel Lampenhäusl, which is your place for an relaxing and enjoyable vacation.
