Cultural site of the Chiemgau-Area

Traunreut and its surrounding, traditional villages offer excursion destinations worth seeing in summer. The wild life of the legendary robber baron Heinz von Stein is the focus of an adventure tour through one of Europe's best-preserved cave castles in Stein an der Traun. It is part of a romantic palace complex that spans almost 800 years of building history and was temporarily inhabited by the princely family of Leuchtenberg-Romanowsky. Today beer is brewed here. Open-air festivals are held here every few years.

From stone to water

The Pertenstein moated castle in Traunwalchen, built around 1290, seems almost like a fairy tale. Today, as an equestrian and cultural center, it is the scene of high-quality concerts (e.g. the Orff Festival) as well as cabaret and theater performances or fairy tale festivals. Cool off on hot days in the Traunreut outdoor pool.

Local history of Traunreut

In contrast to the history of the surrounding villages, some of which is over 1000 years old, the history of Traunreut is very young. Emerging from a former army ammunition facility, the refugee settlement was the youngest town in Bavaria when it was granted town status in 1960. The settlement of industry was followed by a leap in growth during the period of the economic miracle. As a center for integration and people with disabilities, the shopping and industrial city has the most residents in the district today.

Traunreut personalities

With the former Federal Transport Minister Dr. Peter Ramsauer and the former President of the State Parliament Alois Glück, two citizens of Traunreut have had a significant say in state and federal politics. Pertenstein Castle enjoys an excellent reputation nationwide as the place where the life work and music of the composer Carl Orff was unique in Germany. Orff has been an honorary citizen of Traunreut since 1978.
