The villages of St. Wolfgang, St. Gilgen and Strobl are situated in the beautiful landscape around the lake Wolfgangsee. All three have a special charm that you will not find anywhere else. In St. Wolfgang the homely atmosphere with candle and torchlight is captivating. St. Gilgen presents itself as a baroque Advent scene with artistically dsigned market stands. The idyllic village of Strobl is transformed into a picturesque village of nativity scences during the Christmas season.
The peace light lantern in the middle of the lake shines far into the night as the first sign of the exciting and contemplative Advent. On an adventure boat trip you can visit all three Advent markets on the lake Wolfgangsee and marvel at the illuminated artefacts on the lake. The echo of the wind instruments echoes back impressively from the mountain scenery across the entire lake landscape.
