|The twin town of Thalgau (German, English) sees itself as the gateway to the Salzkammergut.
Parts of the Fuschlsee from Fuschl (German, English) still belong to Thalgau.
Mondsee (German, English) is not only the nearest lake but also the nearest larger town, known for cheese, cakes and its church.
Wolfgangsee with Sankt Gilgen (German, English) is associated with many memories either of the film Zum Weißen Rössl or of former Chancellor Helmut Kohl, who famously holidayed here regularly.
The view from the Zwölferhorn is particularly beautiful and can be enjoyed with technical assistance by taking the railway.
The World Heritage Site Hallstatt (German, English) on Lake Hallstatt, the place to learn about human history, is certainly not to be missed here, nor are the Krimml Waterfalls (German, English).
Here you find also plenty of Castles and palaces, with the Salzburger Land (German, English, Češtině) being particularly rich.
A visit to Salzburg (German, English, Français, Češtině), itself a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is certainly a must. Salzburg has its own Wikipedia Salzburgwiki, which is unfortunately only available in German.
The city is divided into an upstairs and a downstairs particularly noteworthy besides St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Mozartkugeln and Mozart himself, is certainly Hellbrunn Palace. The pleasure palace (German, English, Français, Češtině) is a sought-after destination at any time of year: in winter because of the enchanting Christmas market and in summer because of the teasing water games, which are sometimes … challenging to look at.
