Zell am See

I left Lienz for the town of Zell am See at 9:00 a.m. It was cloudy with occasional rain.

I put the car in the parking lot of the station square and went for the exploration of the town immediately.

Martyrdom of St. Hippolytus

Heiliger Hippolyt (St. Hippolytus of Rome 170 – 235 AD) was the most important 3rd-century theologian in the Christian Church in Rome, where he was probably born. St. Hippolytus is an initial Christian antipope. He criticized the Sabellianism (later considered to be heresy) and was opposed to the Pope Callixtus I. In 235 AD he was exiled in Sardinia with Pope Pontianus by the Roman emperor and died. (August 13 is considered to be a memorial day.)

After the small town walking I crossed the railway and went to the lakeside of Zeller See (Lake Zee).

Lake Zell is a small freshwater lake in the Austrian Alps. It is 4 kilometres long, 1.5 kilometres wide and up to 69 metres deep, elevation of 750 metres above sea level.

From the lakeside, walking to the street of Schmittenstraße I took a ropeway going up to a hill.

It started to rain again. The weather was bad on that day so I was not able to take good photographs. Bad luck. So I decided to go back to Innsbruck soon.
