Skiing, snowboarding and touring at Lake Wolfgang

"Still and rigid rests the lake" during the cold season. In winter, silence returns at the Lake Wolfgang. And yet: the enchanting region loses nothing of its unique charm. For example, a visit to the Lake Wolfgang advent market - considered the most beautiful advent market in all of Austria - is a highlight at this time of the year. Skiers, snowboarders, ski tourers and snowshoe hikers get their money's worth in the numerous ski areas on and around Lake Wolfgang.

Snowshoe hiking at Lake Wolfgang

The enchanting silence of the untouched winter landscape is probably best enjoyed while snowshoeing. Discover the most beautiful hidden places. And experience a new, slower dimension of time! In St. Wolfgang and the surrounding area there are numerous, beautiful routes and winter hiking trails - sometimes uphill and downhill, sometimes quite leisurely and flat - there is something for everyone. Among the more challenging routes is the one from Tiefbrunnau to the Zwölferhorn. The 4.5-hour and 10.6 km long snowshoe hike will reward you with a magnificent view over the Salzkammergut mountains. Much faster and more comfortable is the Zwölferhorn cable car.
