Travel Tips for Sankt Wolfgang im Salzkammergut

Great hub

by acemj

On the eastern edge of town near the outdoor parking lot, you'll find this tourist information center that has plenty of helpful brochures and an English speaking staff to assist with planning your stay in St. Wolfgang or other adventures throughout the lake region.

Ralph Benatzky

by acemj

The composer Ralph Benatzky helped to make St. Wolfgang famous when he produced his most famous work "Im Weissen Rossl am Wolfgangsee" in 1896. The play is set in the town's lakeside hotel, The White Horse Inn and is still performed in St. Wolfgang to this day.

You'll see this plaque in his honor at the hotel itself and there is another one down by the water's edge on the western side of town.

Fishes at Wolfgangsee

by victorwkf

If you are at the waterfront areas of Wolfgangsee and look hard enough, you might be able to spot some freshwater fishes just like I did (see photo). The water near the shore is not deep, but there are rocks between the sand so do be careful.

Town of St Wolfgang

by victorwkf

St Wolfgang is a very charming and relaxing town surrounded by the Wolfgangsee lake and mountains, with the Schafberg mountain just next to the town (see my VT Schafberg page). This town is one of the most visited places in the Salzkammergut region, and can be easily reached by taking the comfortable Postbus (see transportation trip) from Salzburg (about 2 hours ride one way). It is also possible to reach from Vienna via trains to either Salzburg or Bad Ischl town, followed by transfer to Postbus buses.

Besides being a beautiful town, St Wolfgang is famous for its White Horse Inn, pilgrimage church as well as the Wallfahrtskirche (a gallery of religious art with several altars from Gothic to Baroque, opens daily from 9am to 6pm). More information about the various sights of St Wolfgang are at my other tips of this page.

Escaping the crowds

by sandysmith

A good way to escape the crowds in the town is to take a delightful trip on a boat around the Wolfgangsee. The glacial water is an amazing blue colour and you can explore other resorts on the lake such as Strobl at tone end and St Gilgen with its Mozart connection at the other end (see more in off the beaten path).
Check the link for timetables and fares - often there is a combinred fare for the boat and train ride up the Schafberg - see later.
In this pic we are heading for St Gilgen and have a lovely view of the Schaberg on the way.
