“I breathe in and calm down. I breathe out and smile. Returning home to the now, this moment will be a miracle.”
(Thích Nhất Hạnh, Buddhist monk).

The Strandhotel Margaretha is an excellent choice for a leisurely break from everyday life. The lakeside terrace and the private beach of the hotel on Lake Wolfgang invite you to arrive and enjoy slowing down.

The immediate proximity to restaurants, bars, sights and hiking routes make the family-run hotel the perfect starting point. Stroll around town on one of the hotel's own bikes or enjoy a late breakfast with a view of Lake Wolfgangsee. Here you are in the truest, simply sense of the word “happy”, according to your own style.

Just live, just breathe in and out. At the Strandhotel Margaretha life is time-free and uncomplicated. Right on the lake you are connected in a special way to Lake Wolfgangsee and the magical surroundings of the Salzkammergut.

The spirit of the place is unique!

Lake≈Soul≈Life

The breathing is the connection between body and soul. The Strandhotel Margaretha connects the lake with a particularly pleasant attitude to life. Take a deep breath, pause, enjoy – this principle of mindfulness has priority here. Through “pleasurable savoring of the moment” you are invited to “spend some time with yourself every day”.

The German word "Soul" according to a linguistic hypothesis, was derived from the Proto-Germanic word saiwaz (lake, in German "See"), which means “that what comes from the lake“. It was believed that the souls of people live in certain lakes before birth and after death.

Lake, soul, body, life – it's just one. Just INHALE-EXHALE, just breathe in, breathe out..., click on the enlarge-symbol at the top left of the picture     and enjoy our 360° panorama!

Summer freshness 2.0 - winter edition ☺This Strandhotel Margaretha proves it: You can bring a summer retreat from the last century to 2024 with taste and style. The owners and staff are also nice and helpful, good breakfast, good location right on the lake and at the Schafbergbahn and the Rössl epicenter is also within walking distance. And it also works in winter. ☹Lake access was a construction site, but well, in January that's not a big deal.
