St. Wolfgang, also located in the Austrian Lake District, is not as familiar as Hallstatt in the country. Although it is located near Hallstatt, there is no noisy and crowded Hallstatt. More peace and leisure.
St. Wolfgang is not big, the main attraction is the pilgrimage church, White Horse Hotel, Shaf Mountain, and you can walk around the town on foot.
Although the town is not big, the scenery is very good. The lake and mountains of the movie "The Sound of Music" is the scene.
If you want to appreciate the beauty of St. Wolfgangsee, you must take the steam train to the top of Shaf Mountain, a line that has been in operation since 1893 and is still in the market today.
Little train operation time
Xiafu Mountain | The Secret in the Mist
At the beginning of October, on the Xiafu Mountain, you need to spell the character. Looking at the weather forecast, it was not hesitant to choose the train that went up the mountain at 9:45. Everything looks good. Tips: The top two-thirds of the view on the left side of the mountain is very good, and the third-third of the view on the right side is good. So don't worry about tangling, just go down the mountain and sit on different sides.
The first third of the scenery is good, thinking that you should be able to see the lake today. But by two-thirds of the time, the train was like a fog, and nothing could be seen. The huge loss in the heart is self-evident. When I reached the top of the mountain, the entire Xiafu Mountain was surrounded by mist, and nothing could be seen.
As the crowd moves toward the viewpoint, although it is fog, but it is still a glance. At this time, there was a gust of wind. In the changing clouds, the clouds slowly spread out, revealing a small lake with a big sun. All things happen only within five minutes. Great joy after the great sadness!
