Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Austria  /  Upper Austria  /  Hallstatt  /  Old Town
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.

  • is already a super hot child town, every year the visitors are 繹, the whole town is not big, it does not take a long time to walk, but the best thing to do here is to slow down and relax in the beauty loop. But really be careful not to be too noisy rushing, especially in the morning hours, pay attention not to disturb the residents.

  • It's a real treasure! The most beautiful Lake! The smallest and unusually beautiful town! Tiny houses, narrow streets, climbing the mountain. We really liked!

  • Romantic and historic location, the Lake and the surrounding mountains vyhlady zasnezene ... We were here in March and services have been around for the summer season, but according to a tribute to Asian tourists in this up it's probably going to be difficult in the summer ...
