Boat Trips

What makes the Lake Wolfgangsee Advent celebrations so special? That the three villages on Lake Wolfgangsee are connected by ferries from the Lake Wolfgangsee boat company and that the views of the Advent markets from the lake are unique.

At short, regular intervals (every 30 minutes at the weekend) the Lake Wolfgangsee Boat Company ferries take passengers comfortably from Strobl to St. Wolfgang and then on to St. Gilgen and, of course, the other way round! Wednesday till Friday the boats stop at all stations: St. Gilgen, Strobl, St. Wolfgang Markt and St. Wolfgang Schafbergbahn. Saturday and Sunday the boats only  stop at St. Gilgen, Strobl and St. Wolfgang SchafbergBahn. There ist no stop at St. Wolfgang Markt.

The ferries operate from Wednesday to Sunday (plus Decemter 7th and 8th) from 20th November 2020 to 20th December 2020 and from 25th December 2020 to 3rd January 2021, so also during the Christmas and New Year’s Markets.
