Christmas cruises with WolfgangseeSchiffahrt

For your Christmas party in the Salzkammergut a tour to the individual, small Christmas markets is the perfect start. The ships of the WolfgangseeSchifffahrt bring you from Advent market to Advent market.

In the 2020/2021 Winter season, the WolfgangseeSchiffahrt operates from Wednesday to Sunday from November 20, 2020 to December 20, 2020, and every day from December 25, 2020 to January 1, 2021.


Christmas feelings with Schafbergbahn

Combine the rides with the WolfgangseeSchifffahrt with a wintry ride on the Schafberg and enjoy your aperitif before the Christmas party with a fantastic view over the wintry Salzkammergut.

The Schafbergbahn will run for the first time in Winter 2020 up to the Schafbergalm at around 1,364 m above sea level. The trips can be booked in the period from November 20, 2020 to December 20, 2020.
