Hallstatt - Austria

Updated: Dec 19, 2023

This small town is in the district of Gmunden, in the Austrian state of Upper Austria. Situated between the southwestern shore of Hallstätter See and the steep slopes of the Dachstein massif, the town lies in Salzkammergut region, on the national road linking Salzburg and Graz.

Hallstatt is known for its salt production, dating back to prehistoric times.

Hallstatt is at the core of the "Hallstatt-Dachstein/Salzkammergut Cultural Landscape" declared as one of the World Heritage Sites in Austria by UNESCO in 1997. It is an area of over-tourism.

To understand the actual impact and image, most Austrians have not visited due to the massive volume of day-trippers.

My advice would be to stay at Seehotel Grüner Baum.

Enjoy the view from their restaurant on the lake, then visit the town after 7 pm or before 10 am.

Then, you'll get to experience Hallstatt in all its glorious beauty.
