Holidays in Gmunden

Located on Lake Traunse in the pristine Salzkammergut region, Gmunden is a great destination for water lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Although Gmunden is famous for its beautiful Gmunden Pottery, the idyllic little town on Lake Traunsee has plenty more to offer for summer vacationers, including countless recreational options and gorgeous surroundings. In the summer Traunsee is one of the Salzkammergut’s most popular lakes. Boat tours are fun and an excellent way to get a closer look of the lake. Fishers appreciate the peace and tranquility of the lake. On warm summer nights the lake inspires romance with a stroll along the pretty Gmunden Esplanade. Also located on Lake Traunsee is the medieval Schloss Ort castle, one of the Salzkammergut’s oldest buildings.
