Things to Do in Straßwalchen

Strasswalchen is a fairly big, yet not very interesting town in the northern-most corner of Salzburg state. There is a combination of people who commute to Salzburg and some who work in this area, which is economically doing well in logistics, transport and trade (thanks to the railway). This does not add to Strasswalchen's appeal; most people will see it as a passage way to the Salzkammergut area and not stay there.
