    Bad Ischl

    From the 16th to the 19th century, there were Traunreiter/Traun Riders in the area of the Salzkammergut. They had to transport the salt and other local goods across the mountains
    and pick them up from the rivers. They had special outfits and were highly acknowledged
    in the mountainous terrain. This image on the wall portrays a Traunrider in a colorful mosaic.
