TRAUNSTEIN, a town and summer resort of Bavaria, situated, at an elevation of nearly 2000 ft., on the river Traun, 73 M. by rail S.E. of Munich. Pop. (1905), 7447. It distils salt from the brine of Reichenhall, whence (22 in. distant) it is brought in pipes. It has an historical museum, four churches (three of which are Roman Catholic), two fine fountains—a monument of the war of 1870-71 and one to King Maximilian II. There are saline baths and breweries. In the vicinity are Empfing, with baths of all kinds and a cold-water cure establishment on the Kneipp system. Traunstein received civic rights in 1375.
