WHITE HORSE HISTORY: A LEGEND OF A HOTEL

Interesting facts about one of Austria's best known hotels

"White Horse Inn on Lake Wolfgang" has stood for hospitality for more than 500 years. The operetta by Ralph Benatzky made hotel in the Salzkammergut famous.

Who doesn't instantly think of Peter Alexander as Leopold in Ralph Benatzky's operetta when hearing the name "Weisses Rössl" (White Horse)? In 1896 Oskar Blumenthal and Gustav Kadelburg wrote this romantic comedy at Villa Blumenthal, close to the city of Bad Ischl. It's a story about a lovestruck head waiter and the feisty Rössl landlady at "White Horse Inn". In 1930 Ralph Benatzky then wrote the infectious music and on 8th November 1930 the operetta premiered in Berlin. The White Horse has galloped around the whole world ever since and told the story about the holiday romance on Lake Wolfgang.

White Horse Inn's history: more than operetta

Whoever thinks that White Horse Inn's fame and history is all about the operetta is not quite right: for more than 500 years guests have been served and accommodated close to St. Wolfgang's pilgrimage church. The actual "White Horse Inn" was established in 1878. Paul Johann Peter bought "White Horse Inn" in 1912 and became founder of the family-run hotel, which is now run in 5th generation.

A legend redefines itself

Fame does have its darker sides: it took the owner family ten years to turn the inn for day trippers into a serious 4-star-superior hotel. Today guests find charming hospitality, outstanding comfort and every imaginable service at "White Horse Inn on Lake Wolfgang" - far from the picture painted by the operetta. But there is one thing that will never change: the gorgeous landscape and the unique location that has delighted guests then and now!

Lake Wolfgang

Lake Wolfgang is considered to be one of Austria’s most beautiful lakes, and rightly so. Surrounded by hills and mountains, it is located in the middle of the charming and diverse Salzkammergut landscape, sparkling just like a gem in a ring.

A great piece of Austria

With a surface of 13.5 square kilometres and a depth of up to 114 metres, Lake Wolfgang is a quite impressive representative of its kind. What makes it so lovely during a summer holiday: Lake Wolfgang is one of the Salzkammergut’s warmest lakes with up to 26 degrees. Dive into a lake with drinking water quality and enjoy refreshing swims from the beginning of the season in May until mid-September.

Something for everyone, all year round

Year in, year out White Horse Inn Romantik Hotel on Lake Wolfgang offers a great range of offers for water rats, recreation seekers and guest, who just want to take a break from their everyday lives. See for yourself during a holiday on the lake!

SPA ON LAKE WOLFGANG

Spa offers at White Horse Inn Romantic Hotel on Lake Wolfgang

We especially focus on wellness at our hotel. Recreation of our guests is the most important thing.

Focus on recreation

„Es muss was wunderbares sein…“ (“It must be something rather delightful …”) – the song from the “The White Horse” operetta is about love, but it might as well be about recreation at our hotel on Lake Wolfgang.

Your first row seat on the lake

Recreation start on the lake. Take a swim in the all-year heated 30°C lake lido surrounded by the stunning Salzkammergut’s mountain panorama. 

Sonnenterrasse (sun terrace) with comfortable loungers and shady recreational islands is located right behind the lake lido. The White Horse pool, the world’s first floating Jacuzzi, awaits your visit!

Sweating wellness

The new cardio and weight machines in the spacious gym right under the roof will make you sweat. Experience the same effect, just more comfortably, in the sauna area right behind Sonnenterrasse; views over the lake and mountains are guaranteed! Traunerlbad, Sool steam bath and panorama sauna - something for everyone.

SPA on the lake

The wellness stay and our spa offers are rounded off by relaxing and vitalising treatments at SPA on the lake. The area is located on the first floor and serves as the White Horse Inn Romantic Hotel’s oasis of peace on Lake Wolfgang, especially during the summer. Our team’s experienced and well-trained hands will pamper you and adjust the treatments to your and your skin’s individual needs.

All round wellness

After a day packed with wellness moments and recreation zones our guests love to meet at Kaiserterrasse (emperor’s terrace) at Romantik Restaurant to enjoy culinary highlights on a 2-toque level. The region’s best with international touch, is chef de cuisine Peter Dengg’s credo. Days like these could last forever - at your White Horse Inn Romantik Hotel on Lake Wolfgang.

Children´s bliss

Cosy romance and lively children? - For us at the White Horse Inn Romantik Hotel on Lake Wolfgang those two seemingly contradicting ideas are perfectly compatible, a rather great symbiosis actually!

Your family summer on the lake

Parents will also get their money’s worth; the Outlet-Centre in Salzburg attracts people from near and far.

… a diverse region!

The Salzkammergut is one of Austria’s and the Alpine region’s most popular region, and rightly so. It is its diversity that, for centuries, has attracted recreation seekers to the lakes and mountains between Gmunden and Fuschl, from Upper Austria to Styria.

On the emperor’s traces

Franz Joseph and Sisi, the history’s most famous imperial couple, didn’t only meet in Bad Ischl for the first time, but also spent summer after summer at the magnificent Kaiservilla (emperor’s mansion) and the shady forests that surround it. With them came the “who-is-who” of the aristocrats. The emperor also had his personal place at White Horse Inn on Lake Wolfgang, today Kaiserterrasse (emperor’s terrace) at Romantik Restaurant is dedicated to him.

Holidays for lovers

For a long time, the romantic scenery of the Salzkammergut has attracted lovers. Deservedly so, as there is really much to experience for couples in summer and in winter.

How about a cosy horse-drawn carriage ride round the lake in summer or a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride through the snowy landscape in winter, with a romantic hike or an exciting tobogganing adventure? 

Horse-drawn carriage ride

What could be more beautiful than to travel unhurriedly through the Salzkammergut? Experience nature closely, in summer as well as in winter. Enjoy the wonderful landscape and the view of the mountains and the lakes. In winter you gallop through the bitter cold, arm in arm cuddled in soft and warm blankets. In summer you go through bright meadows and enjoy the sunbeams on your skin. We, the team of the White Horse Inn, will be happy to arrange a carriage ride as you wish.

Romantic hikes

Or you enjoy romantic hours during a hike, just the two of you. The Salzkammergut’s landscape is verily calling you to experience it by foot.

If you are reaching for greater heights and want to admire the Salzkammergut from up above, climb one of the many mountains in the region. Hike over beautiful alpine meadows and take a rest in one of the rustic huts.

Night tobogganing ride

A special highlight for lovers is a night tobogganing ride. You walk through the quiet, dark forest and up the mountain. You stop for a bite at a hut, warm and strengthen yourselves before you embark on the fast downhill ride. At the White Horse Inn we will gladly inform you on nearby tobogganing runs and recommend one that suits you.

Fish farm

RÖSSLING & FISHING LODGE

The best is now near

"What you enjoy doing you will end up doing well" – this applies to 100% to White Horse. It was finished in autumn 2012, the fishing lodge with the White Horse Rössl char farm in Rußbach's valley.

Freshly on the plate

A big number of chars, also known as "alpine salmon" - "salvelinus alpinus", bustle here. The char is typically pale pink and can weigh up to 2kg. The outstandingly wholesome fish is especially rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids and omega-3. Not only delicious but actually healthy!

More than just a fishing lodge

The fishing lodge offers room for good food and sociable parties for ca. 25 people. You will be indulged with fresh smoked Rössling char or delicacies from the White Horse cuisine. (please book and reserve in advance). Around the fishing lodge you will find 3 fish farm ponds.

Rustic cosiness, good food and sociable parties:

Fishing lodge in Wolfgangtal valley, located ca. 7.5km from White Horse Inn

Rössling char fish farm with views over the ponds

Smoked Rössling available at the White Horse Shop or online

Fishing lodge exclusively available for parties and events with room for up to 25 people

Hearty hut food, gourmet catering, multi-course meals from the White Horse cuisine

Shuttle service from White Horse Inn to the fishing lodge

For hotel guests: 2 x per week: the White Horse landlord invites you to visit the fishing lodge

(see weekly programme)

Rössling – the White Horse char

Hospitality in the Salzkammergut is part of the locals' lifestyle. We delight our guests and indulge them with everything that our home offers. Part of this is of course the Rössling char. This outstanding fish is bred Rußbach's valley by the White Horse. It takes more than 2 years, expert care and careful, organic feed - without any chemical additives - until your Rössling can be "harvested".

Rössling fish farm in the Salzkammergut

You can enjoy this delicious fish in different variations on the White Horse Terrace, at Seerestaurant and in our toque-restaurant Kaiserterrasse. Smoked and filleted Rössling is available at the White Horse Shop.

A special fish indulgence

It's no surprise that we couldn't imagine our weekly programme without the Rössling and legendary fishing lodge with the White Horse. Nature is the only ingredient. The saltwater in which the Rössling is pickled in gives him its aroma, the expertise hands of the White Horse landlord do the rest.

The art of the perfect preparation

The recipe? There is none! Or is there? Our chef de cuisine Peter Dengg didn't want to miss out and visited the fishing lodge. He was impressed by what he saw and already created further ways of preparations in his head, after all, he has been awarded with 2 toques and is preeminent in his field. A re-invitation was arranged: the second part of the fish tasting took place at the chef's "territory" only a couple of days later at Kaiserterrasse Romantic Restaurant . Soused in a marinade with ginger and lemongrass the Rössling enfolded its aromas that reminded of faraway places. A different indulgence with the same base ingredient in the gorgeous atmosphere right on Lake Wolfgang.

Indulgence with views

The decision was not easy - what decision? None! The Rössling is prepared by two people that are preeminent in their fields in two different ways. Naturally hearty by the one and with that certain "je ne sais quoi" of faraway places by the other. There is no accounting for taste.

Try both variations. Enjoy the Rössling selection with the perfect drop from our exclusively Austrian Felsenkeller wine cellar and decide for yourself which preparation delights your palate more. Both are "winners" to us.

Poststüberl Bar

POSTSTÜBERL Small but mighty

Apart from our dominant and popular restaurants, Poststüberl has become another institution at White Horse Inn Romantic Hotel. Especially smokers know why.

Equal amongst equals

You can already see it from afar. When you turn onto Marktplatz in St. Wolfgang after a short or longer arrival and finally see the intensely red facade of the first of the nine White Horse Inn Romantik Hotel buildings on Lake Wolfgang, then you are very close to Poststüberl!

From coffee to appetiser

We warmly recommend to come to Poststüberl parlour before or after your visit at the White Horse Inn's restaurants. This cosy bar was added during the refurbishment of the traditional hotel in 2008 and has been a popular venue for get-togethers in St. Wolfgang. Lovely smelling coffee, a good glass of Austrian wine, a "Pfiff" of beer (Pfiff is a very small glass and very typical for Austria) - as an appetiser or nightcap - at Poststüberl people meet and socialise. In summer a small "Schanigarten" guest garden is opened on warm evenings at Poststüberl. Especially with live music on warm summer's days, this place has an atmosphere that is indeed unsurpassable.

Smokers welcome!

Another special feature sets Poststüberl apart from the other White Horse Inn bars and restaurants at the Romantik Hotel on Lake Wolfgang: it is the hotel's only smoking area. As strict and consequent we are in all the other areas at the hotel when it comes to compliance with our non-smoking rules - the remaining smokers amongst our guests deserve their front-row seat at White Horse Inn on Lake Wolfgang and get it at Poststüberl. The only thing they might miss is the lake. But they are reimbursed by the views over the hustle and bustle on St. Wolfgang's Marktplatz. Our employees will gladly tell you one or two anecdotes and story.
