The White Horse Inn 

Follow in the path of theatre history with the White Horse Inn Operetta, which got its name from the White Horse Inn, your four star superior hotel on the lake front of Lake Wolfgang in Austria’s picturesque Salzkammergut.

Enjoy a piece of theatre history: the writers Oskar Blumenthal and Gustav Kadelburg wrote the now world famous romantic comedy of the love struck head waiter and the dynamic White Horse Inn hostess during their stay at the White Horse Inn in 1896.

“Im weißen Rößl”, with the English title The White Horse Inn, is a musical comedy set in the picturesque Salzkammergut region of Austria. In 1930 Ralph Benatzky composed the captivating music, and on the 8th of November 1930 the premiere of The White Horse Inn operetta took place at the great Schauspielhaus in Berlin.

Austrian holiday idyll:
Lake Wolfgang and the Austrian Salzkammergut

Since then The White Horse Inn - translated into many languages – has been galloping around the world telling the love story of St. Wolfgang in Austria. The White Horse Inn play and film further exported the image of the peaceful alpine idyll that is Austria around the world.

This idyllic alpine image remains to this day. The White Horse Inn right in the heart of St. Wolfgang and on the lake front of the ever so beautiful Lake Wolfgang in the Austrian Salzkammergut is your four star  superior hideaway for truly romantic holidays.
