Some information about...

Hallstatt has a 4500 years old history (You can read about it on the official website of Hallstatt).

This village originally based on salt-mining on the lake- and hillside, but now, beside the salt-mining, the main incoming source is the turism.

Hallstatt is 500m high above sea-level on the side of the Lake of Hallstatt.


My experience...

Hallstatt is the loveliest place I've been before. It's impossible to write down the feeling of the village. It's just like heaven...

The life is a little bit expensive in Hallstatt, but You will forget about it when You spend Your holiday here.

I can't tell You more about Hallstatt! You must see this village once in a lifetime...at least...

    Great pictures from this beautiful village by the lake. I can almost feel the sweat as you go up the hills to the salt mine;-]
