“The moment we drove into Hallstatt, I felt like we entered a dream. The mountains jut out from the water and there are just these incredible reflections. It is one of the most peaceful places I have ever been!”

Hallstatt is undeniably beautiful. But there’s more to the village than the iconic view you get of the church steeple, reflected in Lake Hallstatt. The region is known for highly developed civilisation and trade that reach back as far as 5000 BCE. Salt was Hallstatt’s “white gold” and afforded the locals a picturesque town with several churches and a characteristic Alpine architecture style.
