World-famous Hallstatt

Nestled in the breathtaking landscape of the Salzkammergut, Hallstatt is a place that attracts visitors from all over the world with its picturesque beauty and cultural richness. Explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site which, despite its popularity and the times when it can be crowded, is an unrivalled experience for any visitor to the region.

Often described as a pearl of the Salzkammergut, Hallstatt is known for its idyllic location on the shores of Lake Hallstatt and the surrounding majestic Alpine peaks. The picturesque houses, historic salt mines and rich history attract thousands of visitors every year. It is true that this onslaught of visitors sometimes pushes the small community to its limits, but the beauty and uniqueness of Hallstatt remain undisputed.

Plan your visit and let our teams give you tips on how to avoid the crowds. Early morning hours or the quieter evening times are ideal for enjoying the romantic alleyways and the breathtaking lakeside promenade in a relaxed manner. The low season is also a good time to see Hallstatt in a quieter light.

In addition to Hallstatt itself, we recommend combining the excursion with a trip to the salt mine and gaining an insight into the millennia-old history of salt mining. Or you can combine it with exercise in nature and discover the numerous hiking trails around Hallstatt. Climb the “Salzberg” for a spectacular view or enjoy a peaceful boat trip on Lake Hallstatt.

While Hallstatt is rightly considered a tourist hotspot, it is our belief that a well-planned visit can offer you an authentic and unforgettable experience. Discover this historic place from “Inspiring places” and let yourself be enchanted by its beauty and serenity.
