Your hiking hotel by Lake Wolfgang

The Hotel Im Weissen Rössl on the banks of Lake Wolfgang is worth making the trip for many reasons.

Furthermore, the hotel is also the ideal starting point for runners and the running events that draw so many guests to Lake Wolfgang each year.

Running around the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl

A multitude of running routes around Lake Wolfgang are just waiting for you to discover them. The circuits right by the banks of Lake Wolfgang are particularly popular. These come in a variety of difficulties and are very varied. Many beautiful trails take you over the Bürgelstein, or around it. For experienced runners with a high level of fitness, there is, for example, a highly recommended run starting from St. Wolfgang past the Bürgelstein through Strobl to Schafbergbahn railway station. You never loose sight of Lake Wolfgang.

There are some fantastic events for enthusiastic runners around Lake Wolfgang. Want to take part in one of our events or train for a run closer to home? The Wellness Hotel Im Weissen Rössl by Lake Wolfgang is the perfect place to do your training. Train on various running trails or in our gym and enjoy a relaxing sauna afterwards in the panoramic sauna with a view of Lake Wolfgang at the Hotel im Weissen Rössl. It doesn't have to be the actual Lake Wolfgang run that you take part in. There is an event for everyone at Lake Wolfgang.

Running events in the Salzkammergut

The running events taking place in late summer really make a stay at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl worth while. An absolute must for anyone wanting to test their limits is the Lake Wolfgang run, which takes place on the third Sunday in October.

Another important event for running fans is the Postalm alpine marathon. This half marathon and quarter marathon as well as the relay and the fun children's race through blooming alpine meadows on Austria's largest alpine plateau attract a multitude of spectators and participants every year.

A further event, guaranteed to bring sports fans running, is the Lake Wolfgang Challenge, which is considered to be Austria's most difficult Xterra Cross Triathlon - only experienced athletes dare to tread here - it's not suitable for inexperienced athletes

Lake Wolfgang hike: holiday days at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl in the Salzkammergut

Spend action-packed days by Lake Wolfgang and seize the opportunity to run! The annual Lake Wolfgang Run is the perfect occasion for ambitious amateur runners.

Even those at the back of the pack will be rewarded for their efforts by magnificent scenery during the Lake Wolfgang run. The most beautiful trails are to be found along the river banks which become your own personal challenge during the Lake Wolfgang run in October. Of course, you are welcome to just watch the participants of the prestigious running event and cheer them on.

Walk the Lake - the "walk with a difference" by Lake Wolfgang

"Back to the Roots" is one of the new mottos of the Lake Wolfgang run in the Salzkammergut - together with "Walk the Lake". Just like the once very popular "Volkswandertag" communal walk, it doesn't matter how long you take to "Walk the Lake" at Lake Wolfgang. What counts is how far you have walked and how much fun you have had. There is even a finisher's medal as the icing on the cake. It's an absolute first, a race without racing, with its only goal being getting participants on the move.

Tip: The organiser encourages participants to make a point of stopping off at the inns or cafés along the route so that they can relax, enjoy nature and arrive relaxed at the finish line.
