Object #24 / Lake Traun with the tavern Hoisen

ca. 1905

Austrian National Library, Vienna

Schönberg spent his summer vacation at Lake Traun on six occasions between 1905 and 1923. He loved the region in Upper Austria for its beautiful scenery. Gmunden on the north banks of Lake Traun offered bathing facilities, hotels, restaurants, a brewery, a theatre, bandstands, coffeehouses, three train stations, moorings, and a streetcar. However, Schönberg preferred to stay in the quieter and less fashionable outer districts at the bottom of Traunstein mountain to the east of the lake.
