The Traunsee holiday region in the heart of the Salzkammergut thrives on its diversity. The Treetop Walk on the Grünberg in Gmunden shows its unique landscape in all its glory – a melange of crystal-clear lakes, rugged mountains of limestone and dolomite rock and the lush green of the mixed mountain forest.
