Travel Tips for Gmunden
The Swans of Gmunden
Most any visitor will certainly remember their walk along the Esplanade. Making that memory more memorable is the number of Swans, ducks, and coots on the lake at any given time. These beautiful creatures add to the vibrant quality of the lake.
Many a visitor or resident will stop along the path and gaze at or feed (not permitted by the way) the beautiful birds, especially the swans. If you're lucky, you'll get to see the swans in flight. Certainly a sight to see. Standing at the Esplanade during my first trip to Austria (back in 1999), I was fortunate enough to see the swans fly from one part of the Traunsee to another part. They're not exactly the most graceful of the avian species, but their beauty certainly makes them look very graceful!
take a walk in "Toskana-park"
take a walk along the lake and have a great view on the mountains - some of them have a peak covered with snow for 10 months a year.
This pic is taken inside the "Toskana Park", just a few steps from Schloß Orth
where to find Gmunden
Gmunden is a wonderful stop-over on your way between Salzburg and Vienna .
If you take the train, you simply have to change in STADL-PAURA and take the local train for just a few Kilometres.
If you take the highway, use exit Regau or Gmunden.
And I made all the pics on this page within 4 hours (including Traunkirchen - 15 Km south by car) - so if you are in a hurry, that time will be enough to explore Gmunden.
