The Romantik Hotel Im Weissen Rössl on Lake Wolfgang

Austria at its finest

in the Salzkammergut

As mentioned before, the Romantik Hotel Im Weissen Rössl on Lake Wolfgang became famous for the operetta of the same name by Ralph Benatzky and the film 'Im Weissen Rössl', featuring the head waiter Leopold.

But this traditional hotel isn't one for resting on the laurels of its past. On the contrary: the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl, now run by the Peter family, is an iconic establishment that's constantly reinventing itself.

Today the Romantik hotel represents Austria at its finest

– a philosophy that's in evidence everywhere here.

Pure romance at the hotel

The hotel offers the perfect spot for a magical romantic getaway for couples.

The fairytale scenery around Lake Wolfgang is a constant source of wonderment, whether you're gazing out at it from the wellness area or soaking up the views as you dine in the restaurants. Spend some time relaxing in the 'spa in the lake', where the heated lake pool and the Rössl pool also look out over the turquoise waters of the lake. Glide gently across the water on a pedal boat or electric boat, surrounded by the spectacular mountain panorama of the Salzkammergut.

When evening comes, treat yourself to a romantic meal of first-class Austrian and seasonal specialities at our fine-dining restaurant, Poll's Kaiserterrasse.

With an unforgettable atmosphere, stunning lake views, exquisite wines from the rock cellar and, of course, your partner opposite you, this spot has all the ingredients for the perfect romantic evening.

Enjoy a holiday beside Lake Wolfgang

Lake Wolfgang has its special charm in every season,

whether resplendent in the blazing sunshine, wreathed in mist or lying still before us as a frozen expanse of ice.

The crystal-clear lakes of the Salzkammergut are among the most enchanting in the world, and they all have water clean enough to drink.

At the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl, we count ourselves lucky to be right on the shore of this natural jewel. We make the most of our exquisite setting, with the lake a constant presence and always in view.
