Saint Gilgen

A Karen Brown Recommendation
Another worthwhile excursion from Saint Wolfgang is to the resort town of Saint Gilgen, a beautiful village on the west shore of lake. The town has a delightful lakefront garden and also a picturesque medieval section encircling the main square dominated by a wonderful onion-domed church. Not only was Mozart’s mother born in Saint Gilgen, his sister Nannerl lived here after she was married, so mementos of the Mozart family are everywhere. The hills rise so steeply beyond Saint Wolfgang that the road ends a short distance west of the village, so if you want to drive, you must backtrack to the main highway and then continue along the south shore of the lake. You can also take a ferry from Saint Wolfgang to Saint Gilgen or if you enjoy walking, you can take the ferry from Saint Wolfgang to Ried and hike over the Falkenstein Mountain to Saint Gilgen, then return by ferry.
