Hallstatt

Trip Planner Europe  /  Austria  /  Upper Austria  /  Hallstatt

Pearl of Austria

Historically known for the production of salt, Halstatt's fine architecture reflects the small village's salt mining legacy. Located in Upper Austria, on a lake known as Hallstatter See, Halstatt is home to the world’s first known salt mine, and was in the business of mining salt as early as the second millennium BCE. Halstatt's charming center showcases the village's prosperity, rooted in salt mining. With a population of roughly 1,000, Halstatt has just one main road through town, and remains nearly car-free during summer months. Surrounded by rugged mountains and the lake, the village's relaxed pace draws in visitors, who arrive by ferry across the lake from the train station.

Where to stay in Hallstatt

In Hallstatt, a tiny village built creatively around a lake, staying somewhere with a view of the fairy-tale waters is a must. Look for a room high up on the hill to appreciate a view of the lake and valley. Despite its small size, the village boasts various accommodation options, from guesthouses and small inns to exquisite resorts. Before tourism boomed here, visitors used to pay the wealthy families in town to stay in their castles. Today many families have continued this tradition by running cozy bed and breakfasts.
