Traunkirchen

Precariously perched on a rocky promontory, the small village of Traunkirchen is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Salzkammergut (209). It creates a lovely picture, clinging to the west shore of Traunsee, Austria’s deepest lake, with views of the lake’s wild southern shore and the Traunstein peak on the eastern shore, the highest mountain of the region rising to 1,691 m (5,548 ft). Above the village towers the pretty Johannesbergkapelle. On the northern end of the headland stands the Jesuit Pfarrkirche, rebuilt after a fire in 1632. It has an unusual fishermen’s pulpit shaped like a fishing boat, with the apostles drawing nets filled with fish. Since 1632 Traunkirchen has also hosted the annual Corpus Christi boat procession.
