St. Gilgen

St. Gilgen is the largest resort in the Salzburg area of the Salzkammergut. Set on the western shores of the warm Wolfgangsee, amid mountain scenery, this is one of the most attractive health resorts in Austria. St. Gilgen was the birthplace of Mozart’s mother, Anna-Maria Pertl. Later, the composer’s sister, Nannerl, lived here with her husband, a local office worker. These Mozart-related facts are commemorated by a plaque on the court building. In 1927, the Mozart Fountain was erected in the town square. The local church of St Giles (St. Agyd) shows hints of an earlier structure. It was extended in the 18th century and given three Rococo altars with paintings by Peter Lorenzoni. St. Gilgen is a major water sports centre and harbour, with cruises on Wolfgangsee aboard the steamer Emperor Franz Joseph that has been in continuous service since 1873. Not far from St. Gilgen, on the shores of the neighbouring Fuschlsee, stands Schloss Fuschl, a small hunting lodge that now houses a luxury hotel.
