„You have to be there at sunset if you want to enjoy the sumptuousness of this lake. Pure, gentle, indeed a superior beauty pours out of it and of the many lakes I have ever seen, none combines such delicateness and so much space in such a happy, genuinely aesthetic harmony.“
These lovely words about Wolfgangsee came from the pen of doctor and naturalist Josef August Schultes, who was the first person to hike through the entire Salzkammergut and recorded his impressions in 'Reisen durch Oberösterreich in den Jahren 1789 bis 1808' (Travelling through Upper Austria from 1789 to 1808).
Enjoy the indescribable beauty of Wolfgangsee from the bathing area of the Zimmerbräu, which is just a 3 minute walk from the main hotel building!
An invigorating morning walk along the lake … spend a couple of hours on the sun-loungers with a good book … let the beauty of the lake take effect on you, take in the aroma of the clear water, feel the freshness on your skin… cool your hot feet …
Our bathing area is also worth a visit outside summer: be enchanted by the particularly deep turquoise hue of the water – which contrasts so beautifully with the autumnal colours of the leaves on the trees. In winter you can look forward to the birds on the lake and their ice-skating championships, and enjoy the peace and quiet which the lake radiates during the off season in all its "tenderness and aesthetic harmony"!
Welcome to your own personal piece of Wolfgangsee!
