Rich in history, our commune is dominated by the mighty Traun Waterfall.
In the year 1834, two years before the railroad assumed operation, 21,000 tons of salt were transported from Gmunden down the Traun River. Woodturning items, grindstones, potteries, calcium sulphate and other goods all were transported across the Traun Fall channel until November 04, 1911 - this day our area´s 600 year old history of boating and transportation was drawn to a close.
Take a walk along the new Traun Path to the Traun Fall, which truly is a natural sight to behold.
Traun Fall Hiking Trail:
Walk along the field trail to the scenic Traunfall Forest. A romantic path meanders through the woods and takes you to the hamlet of Traunfall. Follow the Traun River downstream until you reach the Traun Fall. This scenic bottleneck once was a feared passage to the River boatmen who had to navigate across this narrow gorge.
