What's to do in Gmunden?
The region surrounding Gmunden is bordered by two mountains, the Grünberg at 1,004 meters and the Traunstein, located slightly further south at 1,691 meters above sea level. A cable railway, which was reopened in June 2014, runs on the Grünberg. From the Grünberg meadows, hiking trails with disabled access lead to Laudachsee, which are embedded in the recreational area on Traunsee lake and are found at 894 meters above sea level. There is also a summer toboggan run of 1.4 km in length (“Grünberg speedster”) on this plateau or a low ropes course. In addition, this is a suitable starting point for the demanding mountain tours on the Traunstein, the “guardian of the Salzkammergut range”.
In winter, you can find famous ski resorts nearby such as the two family ski areas Kasberg (Grünau im Almtal) with 21 km of runs and Feuerkogel (Ebensee) with 11 kilometers of runs.
