Things to Do in Thalgau

Thalgau promotes itself as a gate to the Salzkammergut, which is a bit of an exaggeration; however, it does enjoy good links to this area as well as to the city of Salzburg (via a highway exit). The village itself is not particularly interesting, but if you want to spend some time in the Salzkammergut and find a bargain deal, it might be a good place to look into.
