This typical Austrian in is nicely located on the lake, approx. 3km drive from St. Gilgen. There is a walkway along the lakeside, 45 minutes to the Village. Hiking opportunities great. Food is excellent, very friendly Service. Rooms in the guesthouse (cheaper version to main house) are clean, but small and no-frill. All in all very nice stay, highly recommended

We took a public bus from Salzburg to St Gilegan on a day trip. While walking in the town center, we found a sign for this restaurant. I think it said something like "25 min walk." It was a very nice walk by the lake...made us think of fairy tales. The water was so clear we could see fish swimming.... More

We walked here form St Gilgen and only had time for lunch. But next time we shall stay here. The service and the food was very good and the terrace overlooking the lake quite lovely. We ate so much we decided to take the boat back to St Gilgen where we had left the car in the car park!

Beautiful location with wonderful food, just a short drive to St. Wolfgang, Bad Ischl and Hallstatt. Very well run, welcoming hotel. Lake water is crystal clear. Boat dock out front. We highly recommend it.

I hesitate to review this with 5 stars because I don't want the Gasthof to be overrun with all kinds of visitors! It is a true find, indeed! My husband and I were so impressed with this beautiful guest house. Located on the Wolfgangsee, it presents an very idyllic setting for relaxation and fun. The room was very nice and... More

We are staying at this beautiful hotel, lakeside room with balcony. The view across the lake is stunning. The staff here are delightful and polite and the food is five star, eating out on the terrace. Lovely garden to stroll in and a paddle boat to borrow and explore the lake with. Friendly swans beckon you to take a swim!

We were only in the restaurant but we were very satisfied. We liked the environment and the location of the hotel. The service was very friendly and smiling. Outdoor seating also very pleasantly surprised.

We first discovered Gastof Furberg many years ago when walking from St. Gilgen to St. Wolfgang when we stopped for an enjoyable lunch under the Chestnut Trees, enjoyed the beautiful view and decided that Furburg would be our next holiday destination. A charming receptionist showed us several rooms and we immediately fell in love with the beautiful top floor lake... More

After a great week in Austria staying at two other hotels without any problems we arrived at the Gasthof Hotel Fürberg early and therefore decided to walk the 30 minutes to St Gilgen as it was too early to check in. It was a hot day and when we returned and collected the bags from the car we were looking... More
