(4.8/5 based on 25 reviews on the web)
Traunstein is the highest mountain on the east bank of Traunsee in the district of Gmunden, Austria. As measured by the height above sea level of its summit it is 1691 metres (5548 ft) high. Because of its almost vertical walls ending directly in the lake and secluded, advanced position Traunstein looks like a boulder in the landscape. Its distinctive silhouette is visible from a great distance therefore it is often called a guardian of the Salzkammergut.

  • Traunstein is a mountain located on the shores of lake Traunsee. Noticeably above other nearby hills, so it is often referred to as the "keeper of the Salzkammergut". You can climb to the top three ways of varying degrees of complexity. The ascent takes about 3-4 hours.

  • The Traunstein is one of the most popular mountains, beautiful but very dangerous. Especially when you untercshätzt him, that has become so some to the difficult. You should already bring free of vertigo, footwear and sufficient condition! Was himself several times at the Traunstein, Germany, that was most beautiful ascent over BB´s Kamp.,. unqualified path, beautiful. but please only with someone who knows,... Therefore there is also no description... by far from close,. the Traunstein is for me one of the (if not the) most beautiful mountain of in Austria
