Salzkammergut Secret

Large arrow left

Hallstatt gets plenty of press, and justifiably so, but taking a drive through the other towns of the Salzkammergut is one of the best road trips in the world and a great way to experience small-town Austria. For a few years, due to the number of towns we drove through in succession, I couldn't quite remember the name of the town in which this shot was taken, but the image was indelible in my mind. A map and Google helped jog my memory and now I doubt I'll ever forget the name "Traunkirchen." Climb up the hill to the Johanneskapelle for fabulous views - although, really, the ones from the ground are equally good.
