Autumn on Lake Wolfgangsee

Awe-inspiring experiences with the SchafbergBahn and WolfgangseeSchifffahrt

Due to its unmistakable fragrances and astonishing plays of light, autumn infuses the Salzkammergut with a unique vibrancy. Thanks to WolfgangseeSchifffahrt and the SchafbergBahn, you have a whole new way to discover the “golden season” which surrounds Lake Wolfgangsee: both by water and by land.

Ship, ahoy!

The WolfgangseeSchifffahrt ferries link the idyllic communities of St. Wolfgang, St. Gilgen and Strobl by water. Until 1 November, you will continue to be able to relax on board and explore the region flanking this emerald green lake. The WolfgangseeTicket is the ideal companion to do just that: With this ticket in your wallet, you can board and disembark one time at each of the 7 boat landings.

Up high!

A ride on the SchafbergBahn cog railway is an extraordinary experience in its own right. Due to construction work, from 12 October through 26 October the train will only run as far as the Schafbergalm halt at 1364 m above sea level.
