Talhausen an der Glems is a district of Markgröningen in Baden-Württemberg.
The hamlet of Talhausen, which has around 100 inhabitants, is located on a slippery slope covered with loess to the left of the Glems, whose valley, cut deep into the shell limestone, divides the Strohgäu and borders the Lange Feld in the west. The location is around two kilometers northwest of Markgröningen and almost three kilometers south of the Unterriexingen district, to which, however, only a largely unpaved dirt road leads. Because the idyllic Glems section between Talhausen and Unterriexingen is under special protection according to the Fauna-Flora-Habitat-EU Directive. The heather on the steep slope of the opposite Schlüsselberg is kept open as part of nature conservation through sheep grazing. Various rare plants can be found on this meager dry site, including light-loving orchids and silver thistles.
Only a few of the once numerous steep slope vineyards on Sonnenberg, Schlüsselberg and Talhäuser Berg are still cultivated. Most have been left to their own devices and are now forested. Some are partly used as weekend property. - Source - Wikipedia Status: 13.09.20
