“If you have time, do make a trip by car or local bus out to the spectacularly beautiful Lake Wolfgang. If you get off at St. Gilgen you can take the boat over to St. Wolfgang and go up 1.200m on the cable car to the top of the Schafberg from where you will have amazing views. Otherwise just walk along the lake paths. On the way you will pass the smaller sister lake, Fuschl, which is emerald green and a peaceful alternative to the bustle of Wolfgang.”
