Central Square Marktplatz, Hallstatt

(4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Once a bustling medieval center of trade and commerce, Central Square Marktplatz today is an iconic example of Austrian architecture and a nexus of the town of Hallstatt. Visit the square, nestled within the city named to the World Heritage List, and wander among a host of old buildings marked by balconies and steep roofs. You'll find that a great deal of activity takes place on the plaza--you can watch the bustle from one of the many surrounding cafes. Try some traditional Austrian fare at one of the restaurants nearby, or browse the stores for crafts and Austrian souvenirs. Be sure to grab your camera to get a shot of the statue of the Holy Trinity in the center of the square against the backdrop of 18th-century buildings and a steep, forested mountain slope. Make Central Square Marktplatz a part of your Hallstatt vacation plans using our Hallstatt vacation route planner.

  • Hallstatt is just amazing. It's a quiet, small and beautiful little village that seems to belong to one of those disney movies. Completly worth a visit!  more »
  • Shops closed early in the winter. Became quiet when most of visitors left in the night. Cold and with snow in the January.  more »
  • for Koreans and Chinese that is the most beautiful city in the world. best one travels by train and ship by attnbang puchheim. from the schiffsstation you go left to the marketplace. It is all very idyllic. also, there are two churches and a charnel house to visit.
