Sankt Gilgen lies at the picturesque Wolfgangsee (Lake Wolfgang). Here it was easy to leave my everyday life behind
The cultural highlight of St. Gilgen is the birthplace of the mother of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. I am an early riser, so while strolling down to Lake Wolfgang, I discovered this historic site.
On the same street is the prestigious International School, where children from all over the world come to study.
There are numerous water sports or places to relax the sunny and idyllic beaches right on the lake.
The municipalities on its shore are Strobl, St. Gilgen with the villages of Abersee and Ried as well as the market town of St. Wolfgang in the state of Upper Austria.

I visited many interesting museums, as well as a wonderful pilgrim trail over the Falkenstein to St. Wolfgang.
Taking a boat ride on the Wolfgangsee was a highlight
We were surrounded by the magnificent mountain scenery, the pictures does not do it justice. Breathtaking!
My favorite dish in Austria is Kaiserschmarrn, besides Käsespätzle. Click on picture for the recipe
