Simply relax in the sunshine and let yourself be pampered, or make the most of the many leisure activities offered by the hotel itself, like gliding through the sparkling waters of the lake in our electric boat and exploring the glorious Salzkammergut region using the Wolfgangsee Schifffahrt boat services.

Wolfgangsee Schifffahrt: season begins 1 May

On 1 May, things really start to ramp up for the summer season. The popular excursion boats run between all of the holiday spots on Lake Wolfgang every day. Use these boat connections to plan your hike or bike trip and combine active pursuits with a relaxing boat trip across Lake Wolfgang. Taking a boat across the lake is by far the fastest and easiest way of getting to places of interest around Lake Wolfgang and making wonderful memories along the way. The magnificent landscapes of the Salzkammergut are even more beautiful when viewed from the water. And if you're on holiday with your family, a boat trip on Lake Wolfgang is a wonderful experience.

Rowing boats, pedal boats, electric boats and sailing boats on Lake Wolfgang

Whether you prefer to sit back in comfort or get those legs pumping, there's a range of boats for getting out on Lake Wolfgang. Make the most of the practical boat rental service at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl, which offers electric boat hire and free pedal boats. Sailing enthusiasts will be in their element here, too: cast off and explore the sparkling waters of Lake Wolfgang on a sailing boat. Enjoy the wind in your hair and the sense of freedom out on the lake.

Easter Bunny on board: Wolfgangsee Schifffahrt services over Easter

Easter: An Easter outing is great fun for the whole family! Between Maundy Thursday and Easter Monday, boats shuttle back and forth between all the landing stages on Lake Wolfgang. And the Easter Bunny hands out chocolate on board! Look forward to a lovely Easter surprise for your children out on the water, while enjoying the stunning landscapes and a relaxing outing.

Wolfgangsee Schifffahrt during Advent

Advent by Lake Wolfgang is especially romantic. On all market days during Wolfgangsee Advent, the boats run between all four landing stages on the lake. Travelling this way also means that you don't have to hunt for a parking space in St. Wolfgang (parking is particularly scarce at this time of year). Marvel at the enchanting, snow-covered landscape around Lake Wolfgang from on board. Get into the Christmas spirit as you glide across the glittering water, enjoying the view of the festively decorated lakeshore. A boat trip on Lake Wolfgang in the run-up to Christmas is a wonderful way to get in the mood for the festive season and to take a little break from everyday life.

Ship ahoy on Lake Wolfgang

The Hotel Im Weissen Rössl has boasted its very own boat since May 2006. Ever since, the "Margarethe" has been the pride of Rössl host Helmut Peter. The boat bears the name of his mother, the former Rössl hostess, who took it upon herself to christen it. Today, it's captained by Helmut Peter himself, and he's always delighted to sail his guests across Lake Wolfgang. First stop: the hotel's own sunbathing meadow!
