We went to Hallstatt during October. Its indeed a jewel that should not be missed. Walking around the small town is already a luxury. Defintiely a must go for those who love photography! There is a cable car for salt mine - its option in my opinion. Rmb to try the apple straddle near the bus station before you left!

The salt mine was very interesting with some beautiful elaborative displays. The major attraction was the slides inside the salt mine and speed recorded while you slide. you can collect the picture clicked while you slide after the end of the tour.

The mountain, the lake and the village are a great way to get out in the nature. The Salt Mine tour is a must!

This salt mine helps us with understanding the exact history of Hallstatt and ancient people's life. It's a quite amazing place to witness the beautiful of our creator and wisdom of human beings. In the mine there are plenty of activities to enjoy. Lots of fun there!

The mountain, the lake and the village are romanticly synchronize. The interesting places are Catholic church and Protestant church. In dinner, I was very enjoy from the lake fish grilled and beef with Hallstatt house beer.

You might say it's boring at first... that is what I did. But I ended up loving it. It is the oldest salt mine discovered (anywhere in the world) and you can find out and see a few interesting things. It doesn't take long, you get to use some old slides and underground miners' railway. And the walk to the... More

The tour in the salt mine was quite interesting! A lot of kids were with us during the tour and all of them were super excited for the two slides that take you to lower Levels inside the mountain! The view from the platform outside is stunning! The Hallstatt lake surrounded by green mountains with white peaks! We walked around... More
