"Wolfgangsee" Top 5 Page for this destination Sankt Wolfgang im Salzkammergut by sandysmith

St Wolfgang, in the heart of the Salzkammergut - the Austrian Lake District - is one of the most popular resorts (and thus tourist laden) in Austria. Popular no doubt for the White Horse Inn opera fame and also for the Sound of Music film connections.

This charming and historic village has a beautiful setting on the banks of the Wolfgangsee. Its best explored when the many day trippers have gone though. We spent a week here and managed to see a few sights inbetween the rain we had :-S Our week later in Kaprun was much the same sort of weather - typical of our English Lake District!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:scenic village by the lake
  • Cons:can be crowded and wet, just like the English Lake District :-S
  • In a nutshell:a must for the sound of music tour fans

    One of the best restaurant shots I've seen on VT. Drawn to food and the mountains. It is not wonder we get along so well. ;)

    The landscapes are breathtaking! The village however seems a bit "over visited" judging by your photo, ... nice off the beaten path tips.
