Excursion tipp in the Salzkammergut: Gmundner Keramik
When Columbus discovered America, the „Hafnerhaus am Graben“ which later on became the Gmundner ceramic manufacture, has been mentioned for the very first time. Today, you will find at Gmundner Keramik besides sales and promotions also guided tours and painting workshops.
Since the 17th century Gmunden has been considered to be the place for the high art of pottery. Artists, inspired by the natural beauty of the region, made the first ceramic products which stood out in their beauty and design. Gmunder’s most popular and famous design “Grüngeflammt” was made at that time.
