Some Facts about Kaprun Europa Sport RegionKaprun is a municipality in the Zell am See District in the state of Salzburg, Austria. The town is an important tourist destination known as "Zell am See-Kaprun" with the neighbouring Zell am See and well known for the glacier Kitzsteinhorn. A Chataprunnin (derived from Celtic for "whitewater") settlement in the Duchy of Bavaria was first mentioned in a 931 deed, documented as a possession held by the Counts of Falkenstein in 1166. Chaprunne Castle was acquired by the Prince-Archbishops of Salzburg in 1287 and enfeoffed to the Lords of Felben in 1338. Seat of a Salzburg burgrave from 1480, it was devastated during the 1526 German Peasants' War. In 1606 Archbishop Wolf Dietrich Raitenau had the local burgrave beheaded for siding with local insurgents. In the early 20th century the castle was a possession of Prince Johann II of Liechtenstein, who sold it in 1921.
Tourists staying in Kaprun have a choice of three ski areas every morning. There's the year round skiing on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, Kaprun's most 'local' ski area on the Maiskogel, or the most extensive Schmittenhöhe skiing above Zell am See, but accessible by a gondola from a car park at Schüttdorf between the two resorts.

The Maiskogel ski area apart from being served by a cable car (tram) from the edge of the village has also a modern quad chair, and there's another quad and a drag lift at the top of the cable car serving largely easy blue runs through the woods, with a single red.
