Small village located close to Salzburg and nestled within Austrian Alps, Hallstatt should be on everyone’s „must see“ places once in lifetime. This village could be on lists such as “Europe’s most beautiful villages”. With only around 1000 permanent inhabitants and located on the border of a lake, Hallstatt is surrounded by hills in every direction. It’s atmosphere is like in all small-town’s atmosphere, where everyone seems to know each other. With almost no urban influence, the town retains much of its charm and quiet. Wandering the paths along the lake and exploring the colorfully decorated houses will take a few hours of your time. But, you will not regret it.
So, if you ever plan to visit Vienna and then go to Salzburg, take a few hours of your time to visit this picturesque and unique village in Austria.
