The lakes region is one of the most beautiful places we visited on our trip to Europe. St. Gilgen is a popular town where you can catch the boat that will take you to St. Wolfgang and the village of Strobl - you can take the boat across the lake. At one of the stops there is a train that takes you to the top of the mountain. The views are breathtaking. The boat trip was exceptional. Make sure you get the boat schedule before you leave St. Gilgen so you know what time the boat will pick you up. It is a limited schedule, so you must be aware of the time you have to spend there. If you Google: Photos of Salzkammergut- Lake District near Salzburg, you will see the most beautiful photos of this area. Enjoy!
