  • It is a superb view! I stopped by on the way to Salzburg from Vienna, so I was worried about what to do with my luggage, but I checked it in before I boarded it at Hallstatt station. Security is subtle because it is only completely put in the hut.

  • It usually take about 1.5 hrs to visit. However I went with big tour group, it was about 70 people so it was more than 2 hours. It was fun and worth to visit.  more »
