    The Traun rises in Styria in the Dead Mountains as the Grundlseer Traun in a spring, the source of the Traun behind the Kammersee, flows through the Toplitzsee and then the Grundlsee. Between Toplitzsee and Grundlsee the course is called Toplitzoäer Toplitzbach.

    In Bad Aussee, the Grundlseer Traun unites with the Altausseer Traun (from Altausseer See) and is also called the Badausseer Traun, officially the United Traun^.

    Shortly thereafter, at Unterkainisch, the Kainischtraun flows in (as Ödensee Traun from Ödensee and Riedlbach-Traun from Hochmühleck), from here it is called Koppentraun.

    This upper catchment area (without the Odensee) is the Ausseerland as the northern part of the Styrian Salzkammergut.

    The Koppentraun flows westward through a gorge with the Koppenpass and a railway connection, before turning north at the Dachstein massif and feeding Lake Hallstatt.

    It is only finally called Traun after leaving the lake. In the middle course, initially called Goiserer Traun, it crosses the inner Salzkammergut and Bad Ischl, where it picks up the Ischl from Lake Wolfgang, is called Ischler Traun and then Ebenseer Traun and maintains the north-eastern direction. It flows along the Höllengebirge and at Ebensee into the Traunsee. After exiting the lake on the Traunstein in Gmunden, it is also called the Gmundner Traun, leaving the Salzkammergut mountains and entering the foothills of the Alps.

    At Stadl-Paura it takes up the Ager from the Attersee, its largest tributary, and flows past Weis through the flat Wels Heath and touches the town of Traun. On the border between Ansfelden and Linz, a large part of the water is diverted to the headwater canal at the Traun weir, which feeds the Linz-Kleinmünchen power plant.

    The Traun flows into the Danube in the city of Linz, on the border between the districts of Pichling and the Hafen industrial area (the voestalpine factory site).

    The Traun is a 153 km long right tributary of the Danube in Upper Austria (Austria). The mean discharge is 135 m³ / s, which drains most of the Salzkammergut. East of the Traun stretches the Traunviertel to Enns. The river name Traun is probably derived from the Celtic word druna (the running) from. This river name was later adopted by the Romans.
