Work is still on-going through the winter on the new Spa complex to be built in Kaprun.
If work continues at the current rate it should be completed as planned in December 2010.
The local joint tourist board of Zell am See and Kaprun have recently published a story on there website which can be found by typing into Google Kaprun and Zell am See and will bring you to this link.
It is noted even at the building stage the site is referred to as" stunning".
The site once developed promises to have facilities for parking for 450 cars, which gives you some idea of the site and capacity once completed.
Tauern Spa World Kaprun, is a new spa complex planned to be completed in November 2010 ( update it did open in November 2010 ) at a cost of around 80 million Euro.
The complex will be built on a site which is close to Kaprun and is located just off the "new road" going into Kaprun.
The site is located between the
i) Zell am See Golf club (or to give its full title Golf Club Zell am See-Kaprun-Sallbach-Hinterglemm and
ii) Kaprun Burg or for an English version of the same website see Kaprun Castle site, and iii) the center of Kaprun.
Kaprun is a lovely Austrian alpine village which is twinned with the holiday lakeside medieval market town of Zell am See which is about 8 kilometers away, or 10 minutes by bus. For a number of years the two holiday locations marketed themselves with the grandiose title of "Die Europa Sport region" some would argue that the title is justified with the numerous sporting activities all year round.
The site of Tauern-Spa-World-Kaprun sits in the valley bottom, close to the Hohe Tauern national park and takes in the views in all directions, which includes:-
- The famous mountain Schmitten which rises to 2000 meters and became famous via the Austrian Empress visit and a chapel at the summit is named after after her. Which claims to have the prettiest view from it peak, of more than two dozen peaks at over 2000 meters in height.
- The other direction stands the vista of the Kitzsteinhorn standing at 3203 meters with its glacier, where it is possible to ski all year round.
- Standing like a smaller brother is the Maisikogel where it is possible to take the mountain lift up towards its 1675 metre high summit.
- Adjacent to the site is the Salzach river where it is possible to go rafting or canoeing on as it wends its way to to Salzburg, which is named after the river.
