Last winter, I traveled through the West of Austria for the very first time. And, just as I expected, I fell in love! Hallstatt Austria is a charming lake town village located between mountains on Lake Hallstatt. Hallstatt is home to less than 1,000 people and this well preserved town has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
I was looking for fairytale destinations around Europe and I found it here in Hallstatt!
While I only had a day to visit Hallstatt, it was enough time to get a taste for this famous Lakeside Alpine Village in Austria. Aside from being the most beautiful place in Austria, Hallstatt is more than 7,000 years old and has the oldest salt mine in the world.
