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.

  • 哈爾斯塔特有著令人驚歎的美景, 而這個小鎮地方我覺得看起來是很溫馨的感覺, 這個小鎮的廣場雖然很小, 但是在這裡散步非常的愉快, 這裡的家家戶戶都裝飾得像藝術品, 附近有幾座教堂可以逛逛 
  • It's a beautiful place to visit beautiful houses and flowers Beautiful lake you can take a tour around the lake very nice and relaxing 
  • a very beautiful and picturesque square in central Hallstatt.. sadly most of the shops were closed when we went, but great photo op nonetheless
