Strobl is situated at the east shore of the Abersee lake, which is the old name or this part of Wolfgangsee lake. The name goes back to the iron merchant family Strobl, of whom the village´s sign of arms reminds us. The name Strobl meaning "unkempt man" was very common in south Germany.
From late medieval times to the 17th century Strobl was a centre of pilgrims and carters. When the nearby town of Bad Ischl became famous because of the Habsburg family Strobl got increasingly important, too.
