Travel Tips for Sankt Wolfgang im Salzkammergut

Relaxing place

by acemj

I've read that St. Wolfgang can get overwhelmed by tourist hordes in the peak seasons, but if you visit during the off or fringe seasons, you're likely to find a very easy-going place in beautiful, natural surroundings. I came here with no specific plans, but had intended to stay only for one night and then to move on to another lake area town. However, I enjoyed the atmosphere here so much that I decided to make it my base and spend an extra night.

..and the band played on...

by sandysmith

Being a lake district St Wolgang gets its fair share of rain - oerhaps more! Even so come rain or shine the custonmary village brass band will play in teh town centre each week in the season -just near the White Horse Inn.
They must be good beacause so many people stood in the rain to listen to them.

The Zahnradbahn

Here's a picture of one of the zahnradbahns that take you up to the summit of Schafberg. They recently celebrated their 110 year anniversary making the climb up to the summit! Please see website for current prices and schedules.

The St. Wolfgang Pilgrimage Church

by seamandrew

This is probably the major sight in Sankt Wolfgang. This church was built in the 14th and 15th centuries. This incredible church is virtually a gallery of religious art, with several altars (Gothic to Baroque), a showy pulpit, a fine organ and many statues and paintings.

The best piece is the winged high altar built by Michael Pacher between 1471 and 1481, which has 16 astonishingly detailed panels, depicting scenes from the lives of Christ, the Virgin Mary and St. Wolfgang. The central sculpted scene shows the Coronation of the Virgin, flanked by Saints Wolfgang and Benedict.

The church wardens were once so protective that the wings were kept closed except for important festivals. Now they are always open. In fact it's open daily from 7:30 am.

My pictures inside aren't the best because I felt guilty using the flash inside the church. I wasn't sure if it was allowed. Nonetheless, the church is an important icon to the Catholic church and to the people of St. Wolfgang. So be sure to pay a visit.

Bronze fountain beside the church

by seamandrew

Next to the church is a bronze fountain from 1515. My mother-in-law translated a rather lenghty inscription that includes condescending advice to the poor pilgrims. If my memory serves me correctly, it states something along the lines of, "If you can't afford wine, then make yourself happy with the fountain's waters."

I apologize for my picture of it. It's not the most detailed view of the fountain. I was so involved in the inscription's translation that I forgot to take more pictures!
