Old Town, Hallstatt

(4.8/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • 我很喜歡哈爾施塔特的老城區, 這個充滿藝術氣息的小鎮增添了這裏的魅力, 遊客可以享受它的寧靜, 房子有一些歷史了, 但是真的很漂亮, 種滿鮮花的陽臺以及充滿藝術氣息的街道添加了這城市的魅力。 
  • The town of Hallstatt is small (few attractions), a long wooden huts, located on the Lake in the Alps. Beautiful views and cool climate. Memorabilia price very high. In the town there is a museum. You can rent a boat, or sail the boat around the Lake. The town of charming.
