BELGRADE - NOVI SAD - ZELL AM SEE (hike around Lake Zeller with a few viewpoints)

Route Length: 14km

Departure from BEOGRAD on December 8, 2023, from the Sava Centar's large parking lot (bus turnaround for 27e and 35) at 6:00 PM. From NOVI SAD at 7:15 PM, from the tourist bus stop on Sentandrejski put (in front of the new bus station, behind Nis petrol station). You should arrive at the location at least 10 minutes before departure. We'll head to the town of ZELL AM SEE with the possibility of picking up a few more passengers at intermediate stops.

In the early morning, we arrive at the small village of Schmitenhohe, located just above the lake itself and offering a view of this Alpine gem.

Right from the start, we hike through a dense forest to a few nearby viewpoints, then slowly descend to the lake's shore and make a loop around it with phenomenal sights. Hidden among the surrounding snow-covered peaks, we'll be dazzled by their grandeur.

We finish the loop in the idyllic town of Zell am See, which they say has one of the 20 most beautiful Christmas markets in the world! We'll need to verify that ourselves.

In the evening, we head back to Serbia with an expected return in the early morning on December 10.
