Hallstatt is a very picturesque village on the lake Hallstatt, southeast of Salzburg. The streets of the village are ideal for walking and you will definitely find beautiful corners. You can enjoy a boat ride on the lake as well. Cars are not allowed in the village but there are spacious parkings at a distance of 100-200 meters from the entrance of the village. Around the village and the lake the visitor can walk on beautiful paths. Near the parking area there is a cable car, which takes you over the village. Near the end of the cable car is the Skywalk, an artificial platform with amazing views of the lake and the village. Ideal spot for photography. In the area there is also the very interesting Christina salt mine, which can be visited with a guide. The visitor of the mine follows a specific route on foot and by train and will get to know the historical evolution of the salt mining process from the Bronze Age until today. Very interesting.
