Gmunden at lake Traunsee

The first horse-drawn railway on the continent led directly from the Rathausplatz in Gmunden to Budweis (1836-1856). It is possible to walk along one part of the track on the horse-drawn railway theme path.

Traunsee shipping (founded in 1839) is the oldest lake shipping in Austria. Its flagship, the Gisela, is also the oldest coal-fired paddle-steamer in the world (built in 1871). In the summer months, the honourable old dame conveys her guests just as elegantly and reliably as way back when. The Gmunden tramway (since 1894) operates nostalgic trains and the Traunsee Railway also offers unforgettable impressions.

The Gmunden Ceramic Factory (since 1903) exports to the whole world and keeps its doors open to visitors. Its most famous design - the "Grüngeflammte" (green-flamed) - can be found in almost every Austrian household and is one of the symbols of Austria.

The International Ceramic Symposium, the ceramic glockenspiel on the town hall and the ceramic fountain on Rinnholzplatz are just a few examples of why Gmunden is rightly the ceramic town in Austria.!
