Nestling between the Zwoelferhorn mountain and Lake Wolfgang the traditional village of St Gilgen is famous for it's associations with the Mozart family. In 2005 St. Gilgen was promoted as the "Mozart Village" by the Wolfgangsee Tourist Board. Although Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart never visited St. Gilgen (as he had intended to), his grandfather worked in the town, his mother was born in St. Gilgen, and his sister Nannerl moved there after her marriage.
St Gilgen is also home to the St Gilgen International School.
