Our top tip: "When the lights go out in the village". For a few hours, the electric lights go out all over the village, and St.Wolfgang is bathed in candlelight. Our guests can also avoid the crowds at weekends and visit the atmospheric Advent market when it is quieter.

Your Peter host family
White Horse Inn on Lake Wolfgang and the Peter family have been an inseparable and successful symbiosis for more than 100 years.
Hospitality in 5th generation
Guests have been accommodated near St. Wolfgang's pilgrimage church for 500 years now. The actual "White Horse Inn" was opened in 1878. Paul Johann Peter bought the "White Horse" in 1912 and became founder of the family-run hotel, which is now run in 5th generation. The White Horse Inn on Lake Wolfgang became an icon after the eponymous operetta was first staged and of course later with the 1950s "Rössl film".
Many day trippers came to marvel at the scenery where Waltraud Haas, as Rössl landlady Josefa Vogelhuber, and Peter Alexander, as her head waiter Leopold, sang unforgettable melodies.
A legend reinvents itself
Fame doesn't only come with benefits: it took the host family ten years to turn the day tripper inn into a serious 4-star-superior hotel in the 1970s. Various reconstructions and extensions were necessary to make White Horse Inn as big as it is today.
Today's White Horse Inn
The Romantik Hotel "White Horse Inn" on lake Wolfgang is run by Gudrun Peter in already the 5th generation. Guests find charming hospitality, outstanding comfort and every imaginable service at "White Horse Inn on Lake Wolfgang" - far away from the picture that the operetta once painted.
