Overview

Lake Wolfgangsee is one of the most beautiful lakes in the heart of Europe and has drawn romantics and lovers to the world-famous Salzkammergut Region for centuries. The Wolfgangsee ferries bring passengers closer to the magical surroundings of Lake Wolfgangsee: St. Gilgen, with the birthplace of Mozart‘s mother, St. Wolfgang, home of the „White Horse Inn“ and SchafbergBahn, as well as Strobl, with its delightful promenade.

The boat trip takes you from the picturesque town of St. Wolfgang to another picturesque town (St. Gilgen) at the other end of the lake. In between you get to see the amazing scenery around the lake. Great outing for a sunny day.More
