Vacation at lake Wolfgangsee with your dog

What you and your four-legged friend should know when staying at Lake Wolfgangsee

Autumn and winter are probably the most beautiful seasons for a Wolfgangsee vacation with dog. The big heat is usually over in the fall and dogs that love to swim can still really take advantage of the lake. When hiking, however, you should keep in mind that until the end of October there are still some cows grazing on the alpine pastures.

In winter you can go on many hikes with the dog over hill and dale or extensive snow fields. In very cold winters, the lake freezes over and becomes a great playground for you and your dog.

If you want to spend carefree vacations at the Wolfgangsee with your beloved four-legged friend, you should follow a few simple rules. Here are our tips:

      • At the Wolfgangsee there is a leash or muzzle obligation. Even if your dog follows very well, this must be observed. In case of non-compliance, you can expect a fine or some disputes with residents.
      • Please clean up your dog’s “pile” and dispose of this in the trash can provided.
      • Do not forget to muzzle when traveling by boat or train, otherwise you may not be taken along.
      • In most restaurants it is allowed to bring the dog, but please still check with the waiter when you enter the restaurant.

Dogs are welcome and can be booked on request. We take the liberty to charge 20 € per night if stay with us with your dog.

Additional info: In St. Wolfgang leashes are compulsory. You will certainly hear our Mick, Australian Shep(Kleff)herd, from time to time (a “loudmouth” like his namesake Mick Jagger). But you will never find him unobserved or off leash. This is what we would like to see from our four-legged visitors as well, please.
