Enjoy your vacation in the Salzkammergut!

Cross-country skiing in the Salzkammergut & skiing by Lake Wolfgang

Winter holiday by Lake Wolfgang – a dream holiday in Rössl

Cross-country skiing by Lake Wolfgang

Lake and mountains: the perfect combination for your winter holiday. Cross-country skiing in the Salzkammergut and skiing by Lake Wolfgang.

Winter by Lake Wolfgang: a fine mist hovers over the water, the snow-covered mountains glow blue. Then: the warming rays of the sun glide over hilltops and slopes – and reach your room at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl on the banks of Lake Wolfgang. It's time: rise and shine and embark on a day full of adventure.

Cross-country skiing in the Salzkammergut

The cross-country ski trails in the Salzkammergut provide plenty of fun for winter fans! The perfectly maintained cross-country trails in the Salzkammergut for classic cross-country skiers and skaters are simply inspirational. A Rössl tip: stop from time to time to take in the winter landscape
