Holiday with kids at the Romantik Hotel Im Weissen Rössl

Fun for kids by Lake Wolfgang

Happy family holidays all year round

Cosy romance and active children? For us at the Romantik Hotel Im Weissen Rössl in St. Wolfgang, these two seemingly irreconcilable things are not opposites, but go together perfectly! A holiday with the family at Lake Wolfgang means beautiful holidays for young and old and unforgettable experiences in the Salzkammergut.

The Hotel Im Weissen Rössl am Wolfgangsee is family-friendly, but certainly not a children's hotel, and is perfect for guests who want to spend active time with their children. We can arrange babysitting on request and special excursions for our hotel's little guests, but we cannot provide round-the-clock childcare.

Family spa area

The SPA im See at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl is an unforgettable experience for young and old that goes beyond Lake Wolfgang! The floating lake pool, which offers pleasant water temperatures of 30 degrees all year round, is an absolute highlight. Here you can splash around and relax to your heart's content. The charming Rössl Pool, the Alpine region's first floating jacuzzi, awaits close by. No matter what the season, the Rössl Pool invites visitors to savour the bubbling bliss.

Advent, Christmas and New Year's in St. Wolfgang

Immerse yourself in Advent by Lake Wolfgang, a time full of activity and life. A round trip around Lake Wolfgang to all three Lake Wolfgang Advent locations, St. Wolfgang, Strobl and St. Gilgen, is a truly special experience. Taking this option means you don't have to look for a parking space to enjoy all three wonderful Christmas markets. From experience, we recommend that you, and especially your children, stay in St. Wolfgang in the middle of the week during Advent – you'll simply get more out of it. In front of the hotel's gates, you will see another highlight during Advent: the floating lantern on Lake Wolfgang.

Even after the lively days of Advent, the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl on Lake Wolfgang always has just the perfect offer. It's Christmas as our parents and grandparents knew it, atmospheric and genuine, in the company of our family. A stylish New year's celebration follows. If you are lucky, you will see the fantastic fireworks around Lake Wolfgang twice, with fireworks being reflected on the calm water surface of Lake Wolfgang.

Sport and fun in winter

The months of January and February offer all kinds of variety! Whether it's downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, or ice skating in perfect conditions on a frozen Lake Wolfgang – children's hearts beat faster here!
