Pearl of Austria

Historically known for the production of salt, Halstatt's fine architecture reflects the small village's salt mining legacy. Located in Upper Austria, on a lake known as Hallstatter See, Halstatt is home to the world’s first known salt mine, and was in the business of mining salt as early as the second millennium BCE. Halstatt's charming center showcases the village's prosperity, rooted in salt mining. With a population of roughly 1,000, Halstatt has just one main road through town, and remains nearly car-free during summer months. Surrounded by rugged mountains and the lake, the village's relaxed pace draws in visitors, who arrive by ferry across the lake from the train station.
