The Salzkammergut  scenically is one of the most beautiful parts of the Alps with cirques, deep green lakes, foaming brooks and majestic mountains.  Emperor Franz Joseph I and his retinue already came to the Salzakmmergut for a summer break and hunting trips. Excursions in the Ausseerland, in the region Wolfgang Traun-, Atter-, Mond-, Fuschlsee, Bad Ischl, Attergau and Almtal is worthwhile.

You can explore this wonderful area with the Wolgangsee boat trip. The enormous attraction of the landscape, situated between the Austrian states Upper Austria, Salzburg and Styria, offers a varied mix of wild romantic high- and low mountain ranges, the Dead Mountain (Totes Gebirge), the Dachstein Massif and the Höllen Mountain, a unique alpine flora- and fauna,  carefully worked and well-kept man-made landscapes as well as magnificent lakes in drinking water quality.
Wolfgangsee
St. Wolfgang owes its name to the holy Saint Wolfgang. In the late gothic parish church you can admire the gothic panel altar, created by Michael Pacher, as well a the holy statues of Meinrad Guggenbichler. Another attraction at the Wolgangsee is the "Weiße Rössl" (the White Horse Inn). On November 1930 the comedy operetta "Im weißen Rößl am Wolfgangsee" ("The White Horse Inn operetta) premiered in Berlin. This folk revue play led to a worldwide success and brought movie stars from all over the world to St. Wolfgang!

The Salzkammergut is also famous for its ancient customs and traditions. The "Glöckerläufe" and the annual Daffodil Festival take place here. On artists the romantic scenery has always exerted a special attraction as well.
