Just no hysteria.

Really very beautiful. Gmunden is small and cute, the lake and its surroundings are beautiful. You can walk, hike, sail, relax in a calm, quiet environment. Recommended destination

Impressive !

We made a boat trip from Gmunden to Traunkirchen and could admire this unique place during hours. The Traunstein is impressive and the (after COVID-lockdown) very quiet lake was highly appreciated.

Great views around the lake.

What a wonderful lake, absolutely beautiful with the mountains in the background. We traveled all around the lake either by walking from Gmunden both ways. Traversing the rocks/shore along a walk called Mies Weg (hiking trial) (well worth trying). Traveling also the length on the train from Gmunden to Ebensee and exploring the South end.

A dream in so many ways
Oct 2019
Peace, beauty and tranquil times await you at this beautiful location. From the snow caps to the amazing lake.
I really loved the electric boats they rent, being on the lake and taking the boat to the base of the sheer cliff that is the wall of the lake is simply incredible. Much to do, many things to see and great food all around. I would highly suggest driving up into the mountains to get the incredible view of the entire lake.

Nature, quiet and romantic
Aug 2019 • Couples
About one hours drive away from Salzburg the Traunsee area is a great place for retreat. If you look fir a quit and romantic place in the middle if pure nature- that’s the place to go.
Gmunden is a lovely city and a boat tour is highly recommend to enjoy the scenery.

Relaxing way to view picturesque Lake Traunsee.
Jun 2019 • Couples
We were staying in the beautiful lakeside town of Gmunden & decided to take a return trip around Lake Traunsee on the ferry....fantastic activity on a sunny day. We went late morning & soaked up the scenery from the deck of the boat, we jumped off at Traunicken at the far end of the lake & wandered around this little quaint village ....stopping for lunch....lovely walk through the forest to the Church on top of the hill.
We then caught the ferry mid-afternoon returning to Gmunden.
The cost of the ferry ticket was 24 euro return (20 euro if you have a guest card) be aware the ferry office did not take credit cards.
Highly recommended for a sunny day on the lake.

The lake of my childhood
Sep 2018 • Family
This comment is far from being objective as it is the lake of my childhood. While Gmunden at the north end has an elegant flair, with sights like Schloss Orth and a beautiful town square, the southern part of the lake evokes somewhat Scandinavian reminiscences, with steep rocks rising from the water on either side. There is no through road on the eastern shore, which gives this side an element of inaccessibility. It's only by boat that these shores can be reached. Relatively chilly, but perfectly clean water. Good for sailing an
