It's cooler by the lake - and that's a much appreciated feature of St. Gilgen, situated as it is less than an hour from Salzburg, and yet solidly ensconsced in foothill forests and clear water lakes.

St. Gilgen's Churchtower raises its spire against a verdant background.

    St Gilgen looks lovely. Did the singers insist you join them in a beer and sing along?

    When I saw this page, all I could think about was Saint Gilligan, then I saw a tip about the cruise--was it three hours long?
