Spend your family holidays at one of the most beautiful spots in the Salzkammergut region: at Lake Wolfgangsee. The romantic village of St. Gilgen and its nice youth hostel are ideal for a varied program.

One thing you should not miss is a boat trip to the picturesque villages of St. Wolfgang and Strobl. If you want to go hiking, take the cable car to the mountain of Zwoelferhorn with its beautiful trails in the alpine landscape.
