Traunsee is both a highlight of the region and an excellent starting point from which to discover the cultural diversity of Upper Austria. The spa town of Bad Ischl, for example, serves as a gateway to the lakes and mountains of the Salzkammergut, impressing visitors with imperial architecture in the Biedermeier style. A few kilometres away, you will find Hallstatt an enchanting part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage site. Mozart’s city, Salzburg, is also under 60 minutes away by car. When it comes to cuisine, the typical cuisine of the Salzkammergut is celebrated on Traunsee both traditionally and in a modern way.
