|Kitzsteinhorn glacier ( note the snow!) where it is possible to ski throughout the year.|
Around 2 million visitors holiday in the area in each, with slightly more than half of these visiting in the November through to April ski season.
|A great place to visit|
For this six month period taking advantage of the winter sports and the extended ski season with the glacier on the Kitzsteinhorn, around a quarter of visitors are from Germany, followed closely at arpound 15% of the total being Dutch guests, after that around 10% are Austrian and another 10% visitors from the United Kingdom, closely and in more recent years an increasing number of Polish and Rumanian visitors, followed by Scandinavian visitors. English is widely spoken across Austria, and Austrians are famous for their hospitality.
Visitors come for the winter sports, Christmas markets, wellness breaks, culinary experiences and just to relax unwind and to soak up the scenery
In the months from May through to October around 900,000 take advantage of the area in and around Kaprun and Zell am See booking accommodation. Again unsurprisingly German visitors are most popular about a third of the overall total. Next most popular at about 1/8th of visitors is the home market for Austria, with the British taking up around 10% with the Dutch taking in excess of 7% of the accommodation.
