Zell am See was mentioned in my previous blogpost as a Royal Destination.

Has the city Royal Links?
Both Emperor Franz-Josef of Austria and Empress Elisabeth of Austria (Sisi)
have visited Zell am See.

Schmittenhöhe Austria


Empress Elisabeth of Austria (Sisi) visited the Schmittenhöhe (mountain near
Zell am See) in 1885. When she ran up the mountain that overlooks Zell am See
the Empress left all her attendants behind her

Schmittenhöhe

Nowadays it is a famous Wintersport Destination with a lot of skilifts and other
facilities.

In 1893, Emperor Franz Joseph visited Zell am See.
