"If you love what you do, you'll do it well" – that's the motto of our hostess, Gudrun Peter. And that passion extends to fish farming.

Enjoy fresh, specially farmed fish during your day trip or holiday at Lake Wolfgang. An absolute highlight for foodies!

Enjoy delicious char from the hotel's own fish farm in the Salzkammergut
There are 3 fish ponds around the Fishing Lodge of the Romantik Hotel Im Weissen Rössl. Plentiful char, also known as “Alpine salmon” (Salvelinus alpinus), cavort there. These char can weigh up to 2 kg. Their flesh is a delicate pink and especially rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids and omega-3. They're delicious, and healthy to boot!
Rössling – the Rössl char, a delicious fish
The Rössling is our own specially farmed char. This delectable fish is reared in the Russbach valley. It takes over two years of expert care and careful organic feeding – with no added chemicals – before the fish can be prepared and enjoyed.
Only natural ingredients are used in our char dishes. The salt water in which the Rössling is reared gives it its flavour; the culinary prowess of the staff at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl does the rest.
