Excursion to Thalgau & Vöcklabruck

An excursion to Switzerland encouraged Thalgau’s local politicians. They came up with ideas for the seemingly unsolvable traffic situation. Where 8,000 vehicles roared through the village, they created a missing village square and the first meeting zone on a country road in Austria.
On the bus journey, we learn about architectural guidelines for Ebensee and get in the mood for Vöcklabruck. There, an agenda process has been able to initiate concrete projects to revitalise the town centre. Along the way, an architectural jewel of the Salzkammergut proves that remodelling culture is the future.

Meeting point: 12:50 car park Landungsplatz Ebensee (departure 13:00)
