Traunkirchen Travel Guide: 32 reviews and 60 photos

One of the most memorable parts of my December 2004 trips to Austria was my visit to Traunkirchen. This wonderfully pictuesque town situated on the west coast of the Traunsee (Lake Traun) can be considered by many a dream to live in. A former fishing village, Traunkirchen is an attractive jewel on Traunsee's western shore. There was a good deal to see in Traunkirchen and a number of nice hiking trails to please even the more adventerous visitors.

We were very fortunate to have our own travel guide for the trip. VT's very own VT'er Globetrott! Thanks Michael!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Location that is heavenly, gorgeous views of the lake
  • Cons:Parking is extremely limited, that might be a pro though!
  • In a nutshell:A lovely town that is worth a visit if you're visiting Gmunden and the Traunsee.
  • Last visit to Traunkirchen: Dec 2004

    You saw more of my homecountry than I did, because I often heared about it, but I never saw Fischerkanzel in reality !

    I passed Traunkirchen on my way back from Munich to Goettlesbrunn. I had to stop at Wolfgangsee. It seems that I have missed a wonderful place. But it was raining heavily! Next time I have to take more time to explore this place.

    Nice job on this little Austrian town. Too bad you didn't stop and eat here.
