The 4-season holiday paradise
Now you enter this stage in the heart of the Salzkammergut, and we applaud!
Your holiday world lies in the charming towns of St. Gilgen, Strobl and St. Wolfgang, on the shores of the Wolfgangsee. Former summer gathering places for the wealthy elite, the imperial entourage, and also for pilgrims. Active outdoor sports fans, culture lovers, gourmets, visitors out on a stroll, night owls ... they all play an important role on
today's stage, one upon which famous personalities make guest appearances time and again.
"Here where the emperor was once our guest, today's guests are all treated like royalty“.
And if you don't believe us, come check us out for yourself.
Spring is here!
When spring awakens on the Wolfgangsee, our flower-covered meadows and nurtured local traditions invite guests to come, and to stay a while on the shores of the Wolfgangsee.
The mountain lifts and ferries begin running again, outdoor restaurants open up their doors, and many a daredevil takes their first dive of the season into the Wolfgangsee.
Summer is here!
The hiking, climbing, horseback riding, tennis, golf, mountain biking, cycling, running and fishing
make the time fly by. And if you then venture a paragliding flight across the Wolfgangsee, it won't just be your spirits that are soaring.
Area excursion opportunities include the Schafberg, Postalm, Zwölferhorn, the "Abarena" in Abersee, the alpine slide in Strobl, Salzburg
City of Mozart
, the World Heritage Site of Hallstatt, the imperial town of Bad Ischl, the salt mines, giant ice caves, different museums, and much more.
A wide selection of special events, including the Strobl Lake Festival, the Scalaria Airchallenge,
the VON Magazine Polo Cup, open-air concerts, folk evenings, church concerts, operetta evenings, organized children's activities, jazz and dance nights, musicals, slide shows, magical
evenings at mountain huts - in other words, something for everybody's taste. And for all of you night-owls, there are also bars and dance clubs, of course.
Autumn is here!
When the foliage on the forests surrounding lake Wolfgangsee begins to change color and the first
Harvest Festival events are on the calendar, you know that Mother Nature will be radiant in her unique gown of many colors, whilst the steady weather conditions invite you to head out for higher elevations and hike
your way through the Wolfgangsee region.
The third weekend in October is completely dedicated to our international "Run
around the Wolfgangsee“
. Over 2,000 runners will give it their all (27, 10 or 5 K distances).
Winter is here!
"White snowflakes dance gently, sparkle cheekily in the sunshine, everyone wrapped in happiness and joy, the entire valley filled with snow."
The month of December accompanies us into the most tranquil time of the year - Advent season. In the towns of St. Gilgen, Strobl and St. Wolfgang, "Wolfgangsee Advent"
opens its doors to the public on weekends. Authentic Advent markets, an events program including readings, Nativity plays, concerts, torchlight hikes and more, warms the heart of each and every visitor. The three towns promise a spectrum of emotions, one which you can cruise along by boat, from one town to the next.
A free ski bus carries you to your skiing and snowboarding adventures in the Postalm
family ski area or in Ski Region Dachstein-West
, Cross-country skiing,
either on the high trail or in the valley, winter hikes with or without snowshoes, sledding by day or night, action in the fun park, ice skating - sometimes even on the lake - winter on the Wolfgangsee is all of this and more.
Every season on the Wolfgangsee has its own special appeal - if you have been lucky enough to experience all of them, you will understand when locals or guests say:
“We love this 4-season paradise - the Wolfgangsee“
We look forward to your visit!
