St. Wolfgang
is located in the southern area of the federal province Upper Austria. The village lays on the feet of the Mount Schafberg and on the northern shore of the Lake Wolfgangsee. St. Wolfgang is a climatic health resort since 1873.The name of the village comes from the Holy Wolfgang, who was the bishop of Regensburg more than 1000 years ago. This "holy Wolfgang" had to escape from Regensburg and found shelter in the area around the Lake Wolfgangsee. Wolfgang was able to create miracles and heal people. Because of him the village developed itself during the centuries as very popular place of cult and pilgrimage.
