Fuschlsee Rundweg

Reviewed By Mazandrew433 - London, United Kingdom

This is a very enjoyable circuit of a beautiful lake and we'll worth doing as a half day activity. The path is clearly signposted all the way around with a an indicative duration of 3 hours although depending on your level of fitness can be walked in a much shorter time. The path has a good surface and can be walked in light shoes if the weather has been dry, although hiking boots are probably best for the lightly wooded areas. Most of the walk is along flat or gently undulating ground with only a few sections with short slightly steeper ground, so is suitable for children. There are also nice cafes where you can break for refreshments in Fuschl, and on the wàterside near the other end of the lake (ie almost equidistant on the circuit). During most of the walk there are many lovely views of this beautiful lake and the surrounding hills and Mountains.

Zwolferhorn Cable Car

Reviewed By Macca6178 - Pacific Coast Australia, Australia

An extra star if the gondolas were a little more modern. However, that aside, the trip is fantastic with the alps and lakes opening up before you as you climb ever higher. A little expensive at around €46 for 2 but well worth it and something that should be on the list if you’re in this area.

Basilica St.Michael

Reviewed By travel101travel

Visited the town of Mondsee on a tour for The Sound of Music and saw the Basilica during this time. The building extremely beautiful with its bright yellow exterior. Saw it in the midst of the snow which made it even more exciting. Even for those who are not religious, this site holds great historical significance and is bound to be loved by all Sound of Music fans or those who are interested in different kinds of architecture. Would definitely recommend if you fit any of these categories. The inside is also very spacious and has nice statues and ornaments.

SchafbergBahn

Take a ride on the steepest cog railway in Austria from St. Wolfgang to the top of the 1,783 m tall Schafberg. In 35 minutes, the SchafbergBahn will carry you to the top. With its striking summit, this is one of Austria’s most beautiful and scenic Mountains, treating visitors to incomparable views of the surrounding natural landscapes.

Reviewed By Susan S

We viewed the Schafberg Cog Railway at the beginning of the year on a TV Show "Greatest Trains Around the World". As we were going overseas later in the year, I booked a night at the Schafbergspitze Hotel at the top of the mountain, so we would enjoy the WHOLE experience. Words & photos cannot portray it adequately. Revelled in the train trip & in September had great weather - sunny & warm in St Wolfgang where it is situated. Surreal to be at the top taking in the views both during the day, at sunset & at night. We enjoyed the dining experience at night with typical Austrian home style menu [loved the Apple Struedal with Vanilla Custard] & couldn't help going to the window regularly to watch the sunset. Worth the extra money to stay at the hotel without a doubt!

Reviewed By eelSeattle - Seattle, WA

We traveled through Faistenau during a visit to the Zwolferhorn Mountain and lakes region. Best known for its cross country skiing, this quaint Alpine municipality was also beautiful without all the snow. The village was worth a stop to both relax and explore. We enjoyed the surrounding countryside...photo ops abound!

St. Giligen is a charming village on the shore of Lake Wolfgang (Wolfgangsee) outskirt of Salzburg. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's mother was born here, and Mozart's sister Nannerl moved here after her marriage. Cafe Nannerl in the village is named after Mozart's sister Nannerl. "Mozart House", located at a prime location of the village, is the house where Mozart's mother was born and his sister lived after her marriage. Cute statute of Mozart, playing violin, is standing at the center of Mozartplatz.

Reviewed By ssanjay_99 - Mumbai, India

We spent a few hours by the Mondsee lake, when we were returning from Hallstatt on a day trip from Salzburg. Has nice restaurants, the lake and the surrounds looked picturesque and the town itself was quaint and nice. We did a boat ride on the lake, and it was fun with music and eats on the 45 minute ride. Overall an enjoyable few hours at Mondsee.

Здесь можно покататься на сноутюбинге. Это такие надувные санки-ватрушки. Разгоняются они достаточно быстро. Весело катиться на них с горы. Входной билет на взрослого стоит 12 евро и кататься можно потом сколько хочешь, хоть до конца дня.

Pfarrkirche St. Wolfgang (Pilgrimage Church Of St. Wolfgang)

Reviewed By Roman T - Vienna, Austria

It doesn’t matter if you are an expert in architecture and history or not. Entering this church shows you a rather good way to combine gothic and baroque architecture. The building itself is a pure gothic church building also showing some criteria of an initial Romanic building. But windows and arches are built in a pure gothic way. Especially remarkable is the high altar erected in the late 15th century by Michael Pacher. It is one of the most important late gothic pieces of art.
In addition later built altars like th altar of Thomas Schwanthaler are worth a visit as well as the rebuilt cell of St. Wolfgang visible in a side chapel of the church. Especially on warmer days a visit of this church is a beloved alternative to cool down somehow. The silence and atmosphere of the church invite you to rest.
