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.

  • Worth the visit, unique location, gorgeous combination of Lake and mountain. The village is small, coming in a 20 but has several nice places to stop and enjoy the view, your coffee or lunch. We visited on a rainy day, but even so was its beauty. I don't know if it is the most beautiful village in the world, as advertised, but it certainly is in the top-10.
