The region around St. Wolfgang at the lake is probably best described as a magical picture-book landscape. The backdrop could not be more romantic: a crystal-clear Lake Wolfgang, which shimmers in all shades of blue, high above it towers the imposing Schafberg with its striking peak, accompanied by Zwölferhorn and Postalm. Even the emperor in his time appreciated this natural jewel as a destination for excursions when he resided in the nearby town of Bad Ischl.
Summer and winter alike, there is something magical about Lake Wolfgang and its three surrounding towns of St. Wolfgang, Strobl and St. Gilgen. Whether on a bike, hiking with a picturesque mountain and lake panorama, doing water sports on and in the crystal-clear, cool waters, or skiing in the winter on the glistening slopes of the Postalm - it's a region that inspires!
Those who like to take it a little bit easier might prefer to enjoy the picturesque scenery during a boat trip across Lake Wolfgang, ride up high on the Zwölferhorn gondola or take the cogwheel train up the Schafberg. Otherwise, how about a visit to the impressive pilgrimage church in St. Wolfgang or the romantic Wolfgangsee advent market in winter? Last but not least, the charming region also has a lot to offer for the food lovers and for the physical well-being.
