At least half of today's day is entirely devoted to Lake Traunsee, the western bank of which you follow to Gmunden to its northern end. From now on you part with the Traun and cross the northern foothills of the Höllengebirge to Seewalchen am Attersee.The route on the banks of Lake Traunsee leads mainly along federal road 145, but as a separate cycle path strip. The good news: In sections, the federal road has since been downgraded and moved into the mountain by means of tunnels, which gives bike traffic plenty of room to develop at these points - perfect for stopping and letting your gaze wander over Lake Traunsee.At the northern end of the lake you will reach the historic ceramic town of Gmunden. Gmunden, like Bad Ischl, is part of the Little Historic Cities and is subject to special criteria that give tourist exploration a special value: With a little time behind you, you should take a tour with the majestic "Gisela", the oldest paddle steamer, for example the world, not to be missed. A visit to Ort Castle is also absolutely worthwhile.The second half of the day is a bit hilly, but the climbs are mostly very moderate and therefore easy to master. Your destination is in Seewalchen am Attersee, where the day's stage ends at the local lido. In addition to a refreshing bath, you can also find out about the pile dwelling villages in Seewalchen, which were built in this region around 6,000 to 2,800 years ago, but have unfortunately since sunk into Lake Attersee.
