The Exceptionally Beautiful Hallstatt

Picturesque Traditional Austrian Lakeside Village

Situated in the Austrian Salzkammergut and not far from Salzburg, this beautiful village perched on the feet of Alpine mountains on the edge of the Hallstätter Lake. Its name means “the place of salt” in celtic, because it was an ancient celtic settlement thousands of years ago. It is home to one of the first salt mines in the world, which is why it is a Cultural World Heritage Site and has its own museum. The world-renowned village is so tiny, that it has approximately only one thousand inhabitants and can be toured by foot in only ten minutes. It has charming tiny streets and gorgeous colourful traditional wooden houses, which preserves the atmosphere of the past thanks to the villages respecting their roots so much - they did not even allow a road to be built in the town until the end of the 19th century! It is also accessible by boat; travelling over the mirror-like lake to the wooden boat huts. This town is internationally so famous due to its unparalleled charm, that in 2012 a full-size replica of it was built in China as a housing development plan for wealthy Chinese.
