Best Zell am See Après Ski and Nightlife

While the Zell am See après ski scene is certainly lively enough to keep those that want it thoroughly entertained, it also maintains a more sophisticated side if you’re looking for it. Zell am See’s après ski bars cover a wide range of atmosphere, location, and closing time, so however you’re looking to relax or let loose after a day’s skiing, you’ll be well provided for. Enjoy a mid-ski drink break on the terrace of the Parasol Schirmbar, or dance the night away in the basement vaults of Greens XL: these are our choices for the best après ski in Zell am See.

Villa Crazy Daisy

Villa Crazy Daisy has been a mainstay of Zell am See ski resort for years, and is consistently busy once the ski day is over. From the sun terrace, you can enjoy a fantastic view of Lake Zell and the surrounding mountains. Inside, the first of the three floors boasts the Crazy Daisy stage, with a different band every day in the winter. On the upper two floors you can enjoy drinks, snacks, and good music until late into the evening.

SchnapsHans Alm und Bar

If you’re looking for some mountain après ski in Zell am See, SchnapsHans Alm is the place to go. This on-piste bar starts the party in the early afternoon on the sun terrace with a view of 30 three-thousand-metre-high peaks; on colder days, you can retreat onto the two floors inside that are decorated like a rustic hut, but are kept lively by the in-house DJ.

If you are stopping here for some après, be sure to try their particularly good schnapps.

Greens

Greens Pub, along with the Greens XL bar below, is well worth a look in for their tasty cocktails. Upstairs, Greens Pub offers a cosy atmosphere to enjoy the delicious drinks; it is a Zell am See locals’ favourite for a fun evening of live music.

In the vaults downstairs, Greens XL is another local favourite for a different reason. Here you could almost be in a night club in the city, with great dance music and a bar that covers a full side of the basement venue. There’s no better place in the resort to cut loose all night.
