Mmmm. Love camembert
In the main square, you'll find the Hotel-Gasthof Weisser Bar where I had a really delicious salad. The interior of the restaurant is pretty basic, but neat and clean. There's a bar, some outdoor seating and plenty of tables inside. I had this salad seen in the picture with cranberries and fried camembert. YUM!!
Central place of Sankt Wolfgang
The road descends and makes a bend and you start to hear the music and then suddenly find yourself in the central place of Sankt Wolfgang. Here is the starting point - you have the nice wooded direction pole (of course - as the patron saint was a wood carver), you have the church, the most expensive two hotels (The Black Stalion and The White Horse), my favourite restaurant (Weisser-Bar, which is actually the restaurant of the Gasthaus(Hotel) with the same name), a cafeteria, another restaurant, a bank .. and from time to time a lot of people, coming from all around to attend events that are taking place here. Each time I was there I caught some event, people all ages flock and have great time. Imagine this quiet place packed with people :)

This hotel is the setting for the Operetta produced by two Berliners.
Josepha, owner of The White Horse Inn, is divided in her affections between her head-waiter Leopold and Dr Siedler, a richer man. She chooses the former, after intervention from the Emperor.
Himmelspforte / Heaven's gate
Just about 200 meters below the top of Schafberg, you will see this " Heavens-door " - it is a very steep way down into the valley.
The small path is mostly secured by iron ropes fixed to the rocks like a hand-rail.
The lake in the background is Attersee.
Just be careful, as a sign shows that this way down is very dangerous for un-experienced climbers !!
