Started the hike at the restaurant Hois’n at the eastern side of lake Traunsee. At about 8 o’clock. Almost too late to find a parking spot. Recommendation is to go on a weekday or start even ealier
The summit Traunstein is known for not being an easy hike. Almost each year there are accidents and also fatalities.
So I was taking extra care during my 3 h ascent via the Hernlersteig.
Wx was perfect. Still in the shade in the morning. Then sunshine at the top and way down.
See for yourself and enjoy the views:
