Celebrating in the Salzkammergut: from wedding ceremony to party

Your dream wedding

St. Wolfgang in the Salzkammergut offers everything you could possibly need for an amazing wedding celebration at any time of year. Besides the natural scenery and setting on the lakeside, the fresh air and the nearby mountains, there's also a beautiful and historic pilgrimage church and registry office for your wedding. We provide the ideal venue for the celebration afterwards, too, with capacity for 30 to 120 guests in a setting that combines Austrian tradition and crisp modern style to perfection. From the champagne reception after the wedding to the award-winning cuisine, superb wines and complete relaxation, this place has it all. The lake may steal the show from time to time, but that's par for the course here.

Getting married by Lake Wolfgang – pilgrimage church & registry office in St. Wolfgang

Say 'I do' in St. Wolfgang! This quiet, idyllic town in the Salzkammergut, with its historic squares and romantic streets, is perfect for a wedding by Lake Wolfgang, whether in spring, summer, autumn or winter. Everywhere you go, you'll enjoy stunning views of the calm blue expanse and the refreshing lake breeze. The town's landmark is the pilgrimage church of St. Wolfgang, a place of pilgrimage and a popular place for weddings. St. Wolfgang also has a registry office in St. Wolfgang, which handles the legal aspects of the marriage. Whether you want to get married in a church or just in the registry office, the choice is yours.

Contact the parish office in St. Wolfgang for all information about getting married in the pilgrimage church. You can also contact Ms Wimmer, who can provide advice and assistance with any questions you may have about your wedding.

Wedding celebrations at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl on Lake Wolfgang

After the wedding ceremony, it's time to party! You've sealed your marriage bond in the pilgrimage church and registry office – now comes the celebration. With Lake Wolfgang stretching out before you, welcome your guests with scrumptious canapés and a glass of sparkling champagne, a cold beer or a delicious violet spritzer – you choose the drinks. Depending on the number of people and the time of year, the reception drinks can be held in another setting: around a roaring fire in the cosy, rustic bar in winter or, if it rains, on the sun terrace beside the lake, with views over the water. We have a lovely, atmospheric spot on the shoreline, too. Put it this way: wherever you start your wedding reception, the lake provides the backdrop. Happiness abounds; spirits soar. Welcome to the best day of your life.

The perfect menu for your celebration

After the reception drinks, it's time for your wedding banquet. You have a choice of seven different halls and rooms for this, depending on the number of guests. You decide how the venue will be decorated. The Scheffelsaal, one of the most traditional restaurants at our hotel, can accommodate up to 120 people, with plenty of space for dancing and musicians. The Sissi Terrace, meanwhile, is perfect for a smaller, private celebration in an intimate setting, with stunning panoramic views. The lake terrace right beside Lake Wolfgang is also a delightful spot for celebrations.

Our restaurant venues for your wedding celebration:

  • Scheffelsaal (max. 120 people)
  • Sissi Terrace (max. 22 people)
  • Katharina Schratt Room (max. 30 people)
  • Seerestaurant (max. 60 people)

We're always on hand for food suggestions and suitable wine recommendations.

Wedding cake from the patisserie at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl

Your wedding cake should be just as unique as your wedding celebration! After all, the joint cutting of the cake by the newlywed couple is one of the most beloved wedding traditions, symbolising the close bond between the couple. There's also a legend that whoever's hand is uppermost when holding the knife will also have the upper hand in the marriage. And did you know that the first piece of cake traditionally goes to the groom, before the newlyweds feed each other pieces of cake?

No matter how you integrate this custom into your celebration and whether you believe in the folklore or not, at our in-house patisserie at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl on Lake Wolfgang, our head pastry chef, Gerhard Spreitzer, creates creative, individual and utterly delicious speciality cakes to delight the palate and the eye, which are bound to wow your guests. Simply discuss your vision for your wedding cake with our pastry chef.
