Skiing. Cleary. The main USP of the area, as Kaprun is one of the busiest skiing ressorts of Austria. During the summer, it is the usual array of Alpine sports, chaired by hiking. Kaprun itself has a castle and the enormous dams and reservoirs are worth seeing. Zell am See is close. And don't forget about the skiing. Kaprun appeals to a younger clientele and is rather up-market during the main season.
