Continue to Grundlsee.

The 3 lakes tour takes you by boat first across the largest lake in Styria, the Grundl¬see. Then there is a walk of about 30 minutes - this is how you reach Lake Toplitz. The journey takes you along waterfalls in traditional wooden boats, so-called boats further on to the last stop: a short stretch of forest, which leads to the remote Kammersee. After a stay very close to the source of the Traun, take the ferry back across the Toplitzsee and from there walk back to Gößl, where your bus will pick you up again.

Day 3 The Traunsee

Our tip for the morning:
Take a trip to the small Taferlklaussee, which is located on the Großalm Landesstraße on the way from Traunsee to Attersee. There is a so-called "WohlfühlWeg" - a flat path that leads around the lake and is ideal for all age groups. It's a beautiful place!
