The Home Mountain of Zell am See is the Schmittenhöhe

But the Region offers a lot of more mountains and amazing landscapes.

The Region Zell am See often is mentioned in touristic brochures as

The Maiskogel is called the family mountain. It is not so
high as the Kitzsteinhorn. The views are wonderful.
