A picnic in St. Wolfsberg

Crown of the Wolfgangsee

On the way to Salzburg, we stopped in St. Wolfsberg, a town on the eastern shore of the Wolfgangsee (lake) in the Salzkammergut region. We arrived to find the town cheering loudly for...tractors; I felt like I was back in Iowa. However, the scenery convinced me otherwise.

We parked the car and wandered down to the lake shore for a picnic (left). After enjoying our peaceful meal, we headed up to the city center to wander the streets (below). One of the highlights was the Pfarrkirche (church) which dominates the skyline of St. Wolfsberg (right).

Also, what adventure would be complete without some art impersonations?
