The boat to the lake!

Strobl, Salzburg, Österreich

... the outstanding view!

Back in medieval times, pilgrims were rowed across the lake to St Wolfgang with the so-called “Plätte”. There was even space for animals, food and construction material in this useful and aesthetic boat. The flat bottom and the long, elevated tip, which served as a landing bridge, stood the test of time over centuries. This typical Salzkammergut boat is also known as “Traunerl” or „Fuhre“. Rowing the “Plätte” is no easy feat, as is it rowed by only one person most of the time – similar to the gondolas in Venice.
In order to keep this age-old “Plätte” tradition alive, a special society was founded to ensure that this ship remains a symbol of the Wolfgangsee in the future.
