    The track Traunkirchen - Ebensee was the most difficult part of the journey Linz - Ischl, so it is understandable that very early, namely 1835, a plan for an "art road" was worked out. In 1856 the rock between "Stein and Glanzenbichl" (Zwischenstein) was broken through. As in the case of railway construction, workers from the Italian provinces of the monarchy were used to build the Felsenstrasse. Construction of the rock road was the 24th June 1856; The required construction time was five years. Opening on 3.8.1861.

    Always a nice place to rest and linger. Under the old portal is today a table with two bankers. The lion is still looking at Gmunden and guarding the boundary between Ebensee and Gmunden! How many stories entwine around this place with its monument!
