Lake Wolfgangsee in the Salzkammergut became a place people yearned to visit over a century ago, when artists, writers and the European nobility created the concept of the summer health resort and made it socially respectable.
Today water sports enthusiasts, families and nature lovers can all enjoy a unique holiday paradise on one of the clearest lakes in Europe. Really in their element, though, are those who appreciate real hospitality and love good food, and those who don’t want to choose between a mountain or lakeside holiday, preferring to have both.
Lake Wolfgangsee has a charm all of its own and has retained its mystery. A serene toing and froing prevails on its shores with boats crisscrossing the lake and, up on the mountain pastures, the finest delicacies are served. The amount of things on offer here, ranging from sports activities to cultural events, is huge - and in winter, downhill runs and cross country trails turn the region into a peaceful winter sports paradise.
