A bold, quirky boutique hotel with direct lake access, Cortisen am See is a stylish retreat on the shores of Lake Wolfgang. It has outdoor activities and spa facilities and is walking distance to Saint Wolfgang’s main shopping streets.
Romantik Hotel Im Weissen Rössl
The Romantik Hotel Im Weissen Rössl, or The White Horse Inn, dominates the Saint Wolfgang shore with its many interlinked buildings and bright-red accents. The property was first established in 1878 and the current owners bought the hotel in 1912 — the same family has run it ever since. The hotel is adjacent to the market square, making it central to the Saint Wolfgang boutiques, cafés and restaurants.
The 91 rooms are individually designed in a traditional style, with dark oak or pine furnishings and gold, red and orange tones throughout. Most rooms also offer a lakeview balcony, below which the unique spa area bobs in Lake Wolfgang. The spa consists of a floating hot tub, infinity pool and deck, all extended out over the water.
There are two restaurants within the hotel, both of which offer lake views. There’s also an outdoor eating area for the warmer months.
