Oldtimermuseum "Rund ums Rad" in Gmunden

The Oldtimermuseum "Rund ums Rad" in Altmünster (2km from Gmunden) is an interesting collection of 2 excellent vintage-cars, a Buick Sport Roadstar of 1929 with 100 HP and a BMW Isetta. And in addition there are lots of bicycles, motorbikes, mofas and lots of vintage-things around of them like fashion, toys and even a bicycle-repair shed with all machineries running when you press a button. What a great surprise, the owner was there as well and asked me if I would like to take a seat in the BMW Isetta and of course I did. I opened the front door, took a seat and found out, the Isetta is only for slim persons ! :-((
Altmünster is close to Gmunden, so it is an easy daytrip from Bad Ischl !

Gmunden

Gmunden and the Traunsee make a great day-excursion from Bad Ischl. Schloss Orth is the name of that wonderful water-castle built on an island of Traunsee, it is a famous place for wedding-ceremonies. The castle once belonged to a prince of the Habsburg-family, who did not return from South America in the 19th century.
Gmundner Porcelain is well known as well and at the townhall you will see lots of ceramic bells of the chimes. Take a cruise by the steam-ship Gisela, or take a walk through the town that has lots of baroque buildings.
"Schlosshotel Orth" is a popular TV-soap that was made in Gmunden, BUT Schloss Orth is NO hotel in reality, but a restaurant and a place to make a wedding !
---------------------
The best way to get from Bad Ischl to Gmunden is by train or by car !

St. Gilgen

St.Gilgen is a great excursion from Bad Ischl and an excellent place to start a tour through the so-called "Salzkammergut", a scenic area of various lakes, surrounded by mountains and lots of salt-mines.
The mother of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in St.Gilgen and right in the very centre of St.Gilgen there is a square called Mozartplatz with a statue of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, playing his violin.
The lovely church of St.Gilgen is well worth a visit, it dates back to the year 1300 and was rebuilt into baroque style in 1767.
This church was the wedding-church of the grandparents of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his mother Maria Walpurga Pertl - born in Sankt Gilgen - was baptized there.
The townhall of Sankt Gilgen is maybe the most beautiful of all the buildings there.Just take a closer look at the lovely ornaments around the windows and the lovely bay-window.There is a nice museum, showing a lot of different musical instruments of all peoples of the world.
-----------------------------------
The museum is open:
Monday-Friday 09.00a.m.-12.00 + 02.00p.m.-06.00p.m.
saturday 09.00a.m.-01.00p.m.
The museum is closed between November 12th and December 7th
entry-fee is 2,50-4,00 Euros

Traunkirchen

Traunkirchen is a great excursion from Bad Ischl and Hallstatt: a lovely small village directely on Traunsee, a lake that is surrounded by high mountains. Go there by car or by train !
Don't miss the interesting church with the famous and unique "Fischer-Kanzel", a pulpit made in the design of a fisherboat ! "fishing for souls" seems to have been the idea of that architect - see it in my main picture !
Traunkirchen is a great place for some hiking as well or as a stopover in combination with a daytrip to Hallstatt, Gmunden and St. Gilgen.
