INCLUDES FANTASTIC ZELL AM ZEE - KAPRUN SUMMER CARD

Just look at what's included on the card!

Kaprun - Zell am See is probably one of the most beautiful regions of Austria, and offers such diverse scenery. Picture box Zell am See is beautifully situated around an alpine lake & towered over by majestic mountains. The attractive town centre boasts a wealth of shops, cafes, bars and tourist attractions. Kaprun is located up in the mountain valley, and linked to Zell am See by a 13 minute drive on its frequent post buses, or a scenic alpine walk along the riverside. Kaprun, itself, also has a good selection of shops, eateries and delightful walking trails. Here in Kaprun you can take the cable cars up the incredibly high 3029m Kizsteinhorn, which opens up an unforgettable world of glaciers and mountains amongst Austria’s highest peaks. You can walk and hike on the Maiskogel Mountain , or visit Kaprun’s high altitude reservoirs, deep blue lakes at an altitude of 1200 metres with panoramic views of the Grossglockner Mountains - quite unique!

Furthermore all this is FREE with your Zell am See -Kaprun summer car!! You can go up the glacier and cable cars in both Kaprun and Zell am See, visit the dams, take a boat trip on the lake, walk through the Siegmund Thun gorge and for NO extra costs. The card even gives you free or reduced entry to other local attractions and reduced costs on local buses. Please click on link to see full details of the SUMMERCARD. It really offers tremendous value. Please click on link to see full details of the SUMMERCARD.

OUR BRIDGE PROGRAMMES

During your duplicate bridge holidays nothing is obligatory, you can play in as many or as few bridge sessions as you wish. Our bridge programmes will vary according to the length of your break and in addition to playing bridge, we will always endeavour to provide a minimum of two bridge seminars for breaks of 7 days or more.

All of our bridge holidays include bridge seminars with handouts in addition to a varied and interesting duplicate bridge programme. We use duplimated boards every evening to ensure fairness and consistency. Bridge hand records are provided, as well as bridge partners if needed.

Your duplicate bridge will usually be available twice daily, at 2.30pm and 7.45pm. The afternoon sessions usually finish between 4.45pm and 5pm, the evenings between 10.45pm - 11.15pm. The afternoons are normally given over to open pairs/teams. We endeavour to vary the evening sessions, with a balance between teams and pairs, with at least one Swiss style event during a two-week bridge break.

During all evening sessions, we utilise a duplimate machine, which means we are able to produce hand record sheets at the end of the session and when we have two or more sections, both can play the same hands. On our UK duplicate bridge breaks, provided numbers allow, we usually will lay on an "Early Bird" afternoon session on the day of arrival.

We don’t forget you are on holiday, our bridge programmes allow time for relaxation plus giving you plenty of opportunity to explore the surrounding area and relax.
