Along with St. Gilgen and St. Wolfgang, Strobl is one of the three towns located on the shore of the lake Wolfgangsee (Lake District). The town’s annual highlight is the Strobl Nativity Village, which is open during the Christmas season as part of the “Wolfgangsee Advent” festivities.
Strobl (Lake Wolfgangsee) has retained the charm of days gone by. Nostalgic country houses, magnificent art nouveau villas and modern hotels ensure Strobl offers a wonderful mix of the old and the new. Thanks to the surrounding moors, alpine pastures and pristine beaches, the region’s magnificent natural landscape makes for a blissful vacation experience.
Our Singing XMas Tours transport you by boat over the Wolfgangsee from St. Wolfgang to Strobl during sunset. Tradition and craftsmanship are very important here, allowing you to experience “an Advent as it used to be.” The showpiece of the Wolfgangsee Advent – a comet six meters long – is ideally situated right on the lakeshore, where it hovers over the promenade. A large raft floats at the other end of the market. As twilight falls, more than 20 Swedish fire pits are ignited. If you’re planning a visit to the Lake District, then don’t miss out on seeing Strobl (Lake District) under any circumstances.
