Gmunden

Ort Castle

The Ort Lake Castle, first mentioned in a document as “Veste Ort in 909”, is the landmark of our town on the shore of the Traunsee Lake. Converted several times since then – e.g. by Emperor Friedrich III – it was also the location and original setting of the successful “Schlosshotel Orth” TV series.

The Ort Lake Castle is known far beyond the provincial borders not only as Gmunden’s probably most popular photo motif, but also as a beautiful wedding venue, where every year more than 300 weddings are celebrated. Set out on a circuit tour through the castle and explore one of the most fascinating and oldest buildings in the Salzkammergut Lake District!
