Old Town, Hallstatt
(4.7/5 based on 480+ 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.
