St Gilgen is a bustling town located by the lake Wolfgansee in the state of Salzburg. Although Mozart never lived here, the whole town pays homage to the musician as his grandfather lived here, his mother was born here and his sister lived here. There is a fountain dedicated to Mozart and, nearby, a young woman plays the violin.
In the town of Sankt Wolfgang there are boat cruises that depart more or less every half hour so that you can take a tour of all the towns that are on the shores of Lake Wolfgangsee. One of the most important of those, that deserves more credit than it gets, in my opinion, is Sankt Gilgen, which is famous for being the birthplace of Mozart's mother. The scenery offered this boat ride is very, very nice and on the banks of this lake we find the summer home of Emperor Franz Joseph I and Ferienhort Foundation (a nonprofit organization that offers youth summer camps).
A stunning area, the truth is that everything is great, the people, the towns are well cared for and the views are breathtaking. It is is worth going to, and next year I'll return to see what I left out. You'll love the lakes and houses are all typically built and maintain a standard. Not like here, everyone does what he wants. Hope you like it.
This is an impressive place, absolutely beautiful and the people are fantastic. It offers a wonderful environment in which you can enjoy every minute of walking. The roads are great, and they take you to beautiful places. You will not regret visiting Austria.
