History: According to legend, the castle first emerged from the remains of a Roman castle and was first mentioned in the records as "Veste Ort" (fortress city) in around 909. The massive tower gate and a number of window and door jambs were built by Emperor Friedrich III (1440 - 1493). The Seeschloß boasts an extremely picturesque triangular courtyard with arcades and Late Gothic exterior steps (1550); a graffito dating back to 1578 records the "Gößhöh" water level from the Traunsee lake flood.

The exhibition "Mythos Traunstein" in the Seeschloss Ort is open from 03 April to the end of October from 10:00 to 16:00.
