Holidays at Lake Wolfgang: the real Austria
The White Horse Inn: take the plunge and swim in drinking water
Holidays like a dream: the White Horse inn is situated directly by Lake Wolfgang, the turquoise shimmering pearl amongst the lakes of the Austrian Lake District.
Lake Wolfgang, or the Wolfgangsee lake as it is also known, is one of the most beautiful lakes in Austria. Surrounded by hills and mountains it resembles a gemstone set glistening in the middle of the lovely and varied landscape of the Salzkammergut region, the Austrian Lake District.
Lake Wolfgang in Austria: unique in summer and winter
Lake Wolfgang has definitely a very impressive size with an area of 13.5 square kilometres and a depth of up to 114 metres. What makes this drinking-water-quality lake so desirable for your summer holidays in Austria is that Lake Wolfgang is at 26°C one of the warmest swimming lakes of the Austrian Salzkammergut region.
During winter the Wolfgangsee lake changes its face completely. Ice cold and brightly blue, its surface turns to ice that some winters becomes so thick you can walk from the White Horse Inn across the lake to Abersee. A truly wintry, fun experience, whether you prefer to walk or ice skate.

Coming from the city of Salzburg you reach the Wolfgangsee lake via a small pass. The view of St. Gilgen, which is cosily situated at the shores of the Wolfgangsee lake is truly memorable!
