Wolfgangsee Ferries

Around 50 km from Salzburg, in the middle of the idyllic Salzkammergut, glistening Lake Wolfgangsee awaits you. The fleet operated by WolfgangseeSchifffahrt shuttles back and forth across the water between the picturesque towns of St. Wolfgang, St. Gilgen, and Strobl, putting this magical region right at your fingertips. For an especially beautiful excursion experience, combine a cruise on the Wolfgangsee ferries with a ride on the historic SchafbergBahn cog railway in St. Wolfgang.

Do & See

The medieval and baroque area of the city holds the esteemed status of a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, boasting an array of impressive historical landmarks, museums, and other attractions. Take a stroll along the banks of the River Salzach and immerse yourself in the town's rich history while also catching glimpses of contemporary architecture and the modern world. Fortress Hohensalzburg perches regally at the top of the 'Festungsberg' and is one of the largest fortified defence systems in Europe. Gazing down to the foot of the Mönchsberg visitors see the festival district and the large festival hall, Felsenreitschule riding school built into the mountainside, and the 'Haus für Mozart'. The Getreidegasse is a well-known attraction and is one of the most attractive and heavily frequented shopping streets in the world. A stone’s throw away is the Salzburg Cathedral with its imposing dome and magnificent facade made of marble hewn from the Untersberg.
