Multifaceted sights at Lake Wolfgang

Art and culture in the Salzkammergut


A variety of historical, fun and exciting excursions and attractions awaits you around Lake Wolfgang. Sports enthusiasts also get their money’s worth in both summer and winter at Hotel Aberseehof and its surroundings. Whether big or small, in the Salzkammergut you will certainly not get bored with great culture, exciting adventures and fascinating sights at Lake Wolfgang.

Art & culture in the Salzkammergut

Our hotel is situated between two cultural and historic hotspots: the city of Salzburg with its unrivalled festival and world-famous baroque architecture, and Bad Ischl, the emperor's city and the summer resort of aristocracy, poets and thinkers. Stroll through the beautiful spa gardens at Bad Ischl or the famous rooms of the imperial villa. In summer, we recommend the Lehar Festival. Visit Salzburg – the "Rome of the North" – and be enchanted by the baroque beauty of this festival city. But there is also much to discover beyond these famous highlights with many stunning sights in the Lake Wolfgang area – such as the world-famous winged altarpiece at the St. Wolfgang pilgrimage church or the Mozart House in St. Gilgen. And in December you can visit the most beautiful Christmas market in Austria – the Wolfgangseer Advent.

Fun & games

Visiting Lake Wolfgang with your family? Wonderful! We are a family-friendly hotel and especially looking forward to welcoming your family. Hotel Aberseehof has much to offer for its younger guests – not least the large playground directly in front of the building, which you can easily see from the terrace. Children will never get bored in this region.

We especially recommend the following destinations for excursions with your kith and kin:

If the weather god is in a bad mood

Bad weather at Lake Wolfgang – what to do? Even if it rains, there is still a lot that you can do in the Salzkammergut. In the Abarena all-weather theme park, children can have fun even in the rain – the indoor area includes a large sandbox and gaming tables with Anker building blocks, Duplo and Brio train sets, and much more. Couples can enjoy the cinema programme at Lehar Theatre in Ischl or visit the spas at Bad Ischl.

Alpine & cross-country skiing

The snow-covered Salzkammergut is well worth a visit. Be it alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating or snowshoeing, there will be no limits to your winter fun during your winter holiday at Lake Wolfgang. Skiing in the family-friendly, stress-free Postalm ski area near Strobl, snowboarding at Dachstein West, Krippenstein or near Feuerkogel – the sheer range of choice offers something for everyone. Cross-country skiers can find perfectly prepared trails along Lake Wolfgang and in the surrounding area. And the surroundings of Hotel Aberseehof are perfect for a gentle walk through the snow. Then come back for a hot cup of mulled wine, tea or coffee at the Aberseehof – and your winter day will be perfect.
