The holiday town of Thalgau is known as the gateway to the Salzkammergut. Village traditions are ever present here. Holidays in Thalgau include fresh country air, pure spring water, lush greenery and a great deal of hospitality. Whether hiking, cycling or on a visit to the Salzkammergut – Thalgau is the ideal starting point for relaxing holiday activities. Also the proximity to the City of Mozart makes this holiday town so interesting.
For those who would rather spend a day at the Lake, the nearby lakes of Fuschlsee and Wolfgangsee are close to the heart. Whether for Easter, Pentecost or in the Autumn time, a visit to Salzburg’s old town is essential.
Attractions in Thalgau:
- Peoples Shrine: The small Koloman Chrurch on the Kolomansberg is the last completely preserved, pure wooden church in all of Austria.
- Damsels Wanted: the Wartenfels ruin is perched on a cliff on the western slope of the Schober. Whoever wanders up to this summit will come directly past the ruins. In 1261, this castle was mentioned for the first time and today the walls of the ruins are open for visitors.
- “From grain to bread”: whoever wanders around the Fuschlsee will pass directly by the Hundsmarkt mill. The bakery and the wood-fired oven have been faithfully preserved. Annually changing special exhibitions make a museum visit time and again a new experience. http://www.diehundsmarktmuehle.at
