"Seamandrew's Sankt Wolfgang Page" Top 5 Page for this destination Sankt Wolfgang im Salzkammergut by seamandrew

The small town of Sankt Wolfgang Im Salzkammergut (also know as Sankt Wolfgang am Wolfgangsee) is a popular travel destination within Austria. It is famous for it's location on the Wolfgangsee (Lake Wolfgang), for the church which serves as a pilgrimage destination, and also for the Im Weissen Roessl (White Horse Inn).

St. Wolfgang was founded in 976 by the Bishop of Regensburg, Germany (who was later canonised) and has achieved renown as a place of pilgrimage.

The town itself has the same flair has other lakeside towns like Gmunden, and Hallstatt, but for some reason, each one is amazing in it's own way. Every town seems to have it's own way of doing things, it's own way of decorating, it's own culture. I think what makes St. Wolfgang unique is it's location between so many lakes and mountain ranges.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful town resort/spa quality, gorgeous location
  • Cons:Takes an awfully long time to get there (but it's worth it!!!)
  • In a nutshell:One of the many little Alpine towns that make Austria so special.

    This is what the out country reminds me of; so lush, green and open spacious, with wonderful towns for everyday living. Great pictures and comments

    Paid another visit to this page, Andrew. You are so right, what a great place. I bet if you did you toe into the Wolfgansee, you'll know you're not in Jamaica, right? Brrrrrr.
