Old Town, Hallstatt

(4.8/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Built among the mountains, Old Town serves as a huge archaeological site for very old salt mines, some of which are active to this day. Descend underground to see the salt lake and pay a visit to the prehistoric mummy of a miner frozen in salt. The village glows with baroque ornaments on colorful buildings--it sits alongside the lake and is ripe with cafes and restaurants. Make Old Town a part of your Hallstatt vacation plans using our Hallstatt holiday planner.

  • A lot of visitors came here in the day time but left in the night. Covered by snow in the January which became the white world of ice and snow. Some souvenir shops and restaurants were found here.  more »
  • If you are travelling with transport will probably take the train to Attnang-Puchheim and then take the train to Hallstatt. From there, take few minutes for 2,50 euro for the town of Hallstatt by boat. A beautiful old town between Hallstatt Lake and the mountains. It is Durhc the city in an hour. From the boat landing stage left through the marketplace and then Lake along up to the parking lot.
