The Story Behind…
St. Wolfgang Street

It was early morning in St. Wolfgang, fog rolling in, not a person in site.  All of a sudden the silence was broken.  Along came a yellow delivery van heading for the narrows of the only visible cobbled street.  How would a modern van navigate such a narrow street built so many centuries ago…but it did and successfully made its delivery.
St. Wolfgang im Salzkammergut, named after Saint Wolfgang of Regensburg, is a beautiful market town on the shores of Wolfgangsee in central Austria and is famously known for its lakefront church.
Saint Wolfgang erected the first church on the shore of the Wolfgangsee in 976.  Legend has it that when Saint Wolfgang searched in vain for a church site he threw an axe down the mountain to find the spot for the church.  He even persuaded the Devil to contribute to the building by promising him the first living being to enter the church.  However, Satan was disappointed when the first creature over the doorstep was a wolf.
