Hallstatt was a pretty little town, however when we visited very little was open. For a tourist town with plenty of tourists was a bit disappointed when my husband and I was looking forward to stop by and have something to eat and drink and found majority of the restaurants closed. We ended up getting a take out pizza but... More

Austrian lake district of Salzkammergut, a short trip from Salzburg is just one of most picturesque areas imaginable. Everywhere you look the views are spectacular. Mondsee is a lovely town however for really magnificent sights spend time in Hallstatt which is believed to be the oldest inhabited town in Europe. Naturally the area attracts multitudes of tourists including many Chinese... More

A wonderful location to visit, but go during the shoulder seasons. Overrun with bus tourist during the day time. However stay in town in a guesthouse, enjoy the morning and evening hours.

The combination: Lake + Extremely high mountains (1500-3000 meters) are within the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

It was cold when I was there, but I think I wore the right cloth. There are a lot of interesting places inside the village even though some attraction are not available during the winter. But still, we can feels the snow, listen to the sounds of goose swimming in the lake, drinks hot coffee that then taste like the... More

It is a standard postcard view but everyone going to Hallstatt must be here to take this postcard picture. Recommend to be here in the morning for better picture

Magnificent, stunning, just like a fairytale. It was a bit overcast the day my husband and I were there, but somehow that just added to the charm of this magical village.

Taking a stroll on Hallstatt’s main lake front street is beautiful, relaxing, and straight out of Alpine storybook. Although the entire stroll from South to North through the sleepy town is only a little more than 1 kilometer long, it will be ingrained in your memory forever. Sitting right in the center of Old Town Hallstatt, Market Square is the... More

Such a beautiful and interesting village with photo opportunities every few steps. Touristy Information Office was very friendly and helpful. The church with painted skulls and the winding path to the lookout with its history boards along the way were the highlights for me. The lake and its swans were next.

Took train and bus from Bad Ischl to Obertraun and the Dachstein cable car. Some people walked from train to cable car base but it was a hard slog with no pavement at the steep end. Worth knowing what you want to see before getting there - multiple ticket options and you should be prepared in advance to get the... More
