A good piece of Austria
The Weisse Rössl, world-famous for the operetta "Im Weissen Rössl" by Ralph Benatzky, is recommended as the first address in the Salzkammergut. Guests will find Austrian tradition with a unique location directly on Lake Wolfgang. With regional delicacies and exclusive cuisine, the legendary house spoils its guests with culinary delights. The 1,500 square metre SPA in the lake with the Rössl pool and the lake bath heated to 30 degrees is a highlight of a special class.
At the Weissen Rössl, guests now experience hospitality in the 5th generation. The Peter host family has been welcoming guests for 100 years. The Rössl film with Peter Alexander and Waltraud Haas was a firm favourite in the childhood of today's owner Gudrun Peter and was shown daily in the cinema in St. Wolfgang. As a little girl, she liked to reenact the film with her friends. But already at the age of 7 it was clear to her: she would only play if she could also be the Rössl hostess. No one could refuse her wish at that time, because it was already clear at an early age that she would not only play this role, but also be it one day. And that is exactly what happened. The hostess' absolute favourite role became her life role, which she no longer plays today but lives with heart and soul.
