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.

This is a very useful way to get between St Wolfgang and St Gilgen in particular. Strobl is OK but is smaller and has less going on. We used this service a lot in the course of a 10 day trip to this area and...More

The ferry offers a fast reliable service with toilets, a bar and outside seating upstairs. Wolfgangsee is a beautiful lake and you can use the ferries to hop around the bits you don’t want to walk or just to get to another location cation. Recommended.
