Hallstatt

Salt was a valuable resource, so the region was historically very wealthy. It is possible to tour the world's first known salt mine named Salzwelten, located above downtown Hallstatt.

The village also gave its name to the early Iron Age Celtic Hallstatt culture and is a World Heritage Site for Cultural Heritage. Hallstatt is a popular tourist attraction owing to its small-town appeal and can be toured on foot in ten minutes.

Hallstatt is known for its production of salt, dating back to prehistoric times, and gave its name to the Hallstatt culture, a culture often linked to Celtic, Proto-Celtic, and pre-Illyrian people of the Early Iron Age Europe, c.800–450 BC. Some of the earliest archaeological evidence for the Celts was found in Hallstatt.

Our house is approximately 6km from Hallstatt. Close enough to easily access, yet far from the hustle and bustle of Hallstatt so you can relax. If you do not have a car, or simply do not want to drive, then there are several options to get there:

  1. You can rent a bike in our village and cycle to Hallstatt. Depending on how well you cycle it will take around 30 minutes to cycle to Hallstatt.
