to the Hotel im Weissen Rössl in the Salzkammergut

whether you're getting here by car, bus, train or plane

However you want to travel, be it by car, train, bus or plane, there are all sorts of ways to get to the beautiful holiday resort of St. Wolfgang.

We've put together all the travel options for getting here, so you can plan your journey with ease.

Getting to St. Wolfgang… Austria at its finest

Thankfully, you no longer have to endure a long journey on horseback to St Wolfgang before you can start enjoying your well-earned holiday.

Nowadays, the trip to Lake Wolfgang is a straightforward and comfortable experience.

Whether you're coming by car, bus, train or plane, it's important to get here safely and well rested.

If you're travelling by train or plane, our Rössl pick-up service can take you straight to the hotel (Price on request).

Getting here by GPS

Even navigation systems can sometimes make mistakes.

We recommend switching yours off when you enter the town and following the road signs from there, as GPS devices will often direct you down narrow country lanes and mountain roads.

Getting here by car

We hope you enjoy travelling here by car. Why not visit a sight or two on your way? Austria has myriad places of interest.

When you get to the Romantik hotel in St. Wolfgang, park in the hotel's own parking garage. There are also spaces for electric cars and the necessary charging facilities.
