The 4-star Grand Hotel, one of the famous landmarks of Zell am See, is situated on a small promontory between the railroad and the lake. Completed in 1896, in its early years the hotel was a favourite summer residence of the European aristocracy. It was completely rebuilt in 1984 in the same traditional style. The hotel has a restaurant, bar and café. There is also a Wellness Center, ideal for relaxing after a day of exploring. This has an indoor pool with views out over the lake, a hot whirlpool and steam bath.
