At Lake Traunsee, Austria

Camping Traunsee

This week finds me on the northern shore of Lake Traunsee in the Austrian Lake District in the town of Altmünster at Camping Traunsee which has an excellent position on the lake front with great views of the mountains as can be seen in the photograph.  Many regions of Austria promote themselves as cycling destinations and whereas it is mountainous, there are flat cycle paths around most of the lake (not the whole lake as in one place the mountain is too steep).  However one can also ascend the mountains via cable car in a couple of places and the old town of nearby Gmunden, famed for its porcelain, has 1,500 years of history. 

More will come later!
