    Take a dip in the lake right after waking up or relax in the lake jacuzzi with beautiful mountain views: The Romantik Hotel Im Weissen Rössl is nothing short of iconic. For over 500 years, the house has welcomed guests to the calm banks of St. Wolfgang and since 1878, it carries its current name, the “White Horse Inn”. The setting in the stunning Salzkammergut lake region lets you explore Austria’s picturesque Alpine lakes and nearby Salzburg, Hallstatt, and Bad Ischl. The Romantik Hotel Im Weissen Rössl found world-wide fame when the eponymous 1930 operetta and the 1960 musical film. Memorabilia from the movie set are on display all around the property. Today, the hotel is just as elegant, but a heated lake pool, an extensive lakeside spa, and an award-winning restaurant provide state-of-the-art comfort.

    Concierge Recommendation

    Try a smoked Rössl char from the hotel’s own fish farm, a local delicacy on Wolfgangsee lake. You can enjoy it in the typically Austrian atmosphere of the property’s fish lodge.

    "I recently spent a most enjoyable 10 days in St Wolfgang, and stayed at this lovely hotel situated right on the shores of the Wolfgangsee. It is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in and I look forward to a return visit at some point. I had a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the lake. The staff were fantastic and the food was excellent, with a good choice of vegetarian dishes. There is also a lovely spa with a good range of treatments available. A fantastic hotel in all respects and I would thoroughly recommend it."
