Lake Traunsee Shipping Cruise

The Saturday on the 14th July 2007 was a hot and sunny day, and so we decided to take a shipping tour on the Lake Traunsee.

We chose the the ship "Karl Eder" and paid 15 EUR for each person for the big cruise from Gmunden in the north to Ebensee in the south. The cruise lasts 2:40 hours.
