On a search for traces of famous personalities
What do the renowned writer Stefan Zweig, the cancer surgeon Ritter Julius von Hochenegg, the painter Alfred Kubin or the world-famous von Trapp Family of the film “Sound of Music“ have in common? They all left their marks on Zell am See-Thumersbach during their lifetime. One enjoyed the “summer retreat“ here at the eastern shore of Lake Zell, the other spent his childhood in picturesque Thumersbach and some found inspiration at Lake Zell during their short stays.
Discover the pioneering personalities – who left their footprints on this place while being influenced by the impressive nature of this region – on the “guestbook“ theme trail during a leisurely walk along the picturesque alpine promenade. You will be surprised by the artistic realisation of the individual stations while walking along the theme trail. The sceneries along the theme trail do not only introduce these personalities; perfectly integrated in the mystical forest, on soft mosses and between wild roots, they are also a homage to nature.
