Where the hills are alive
In the heart of Salzkammergut (aka the Austrian lake district), this delightful market town sits on the shore of Lake Wolfgang. You’ll be forgiven if you think this breath-taking scenery looks familiar, as many scenes from Hollywood classic ‘The Sound of Music’ were shot in this region. And once you lay eyes on the rolling mountain hills and pretty village buildings, you’ll understand why. Summer holidays here are all about the lake, but if water activities aren’t your cup of tea, take advantage of the many grassy beach areas, and relax in the summer sun while admiring glorious alpine vistas.
3 reasons we think you’ll love St Wolfgang
Schafberg railway
Ride one of the oldest working steam cog-railway in the world from the lake’s edge, up 1,000 metres to the summit of Schafberg mountain. On a clear day, the summit view reveals many more of the region’s exquisite lakes.
Fun on the water
When the summer sun comes out, Lake Wolfgang is the place to be. Explore the lake in a pedalo, or an e-boat (and spare your legs). Or, for something more exciting, how about trying wakeboarding, waterskiing, or wakesurfing?
Family theme park
In the village of Abersee, just across the lake from St Wolfgang, Abarena Theme Park promises an action-packed day of family fun. Kids can go wild in here with go-carts, trampolines, tube slides, a water play area, and more...
