“Cute Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Hallstatt's Main Square is not a huge square, if compared to the ones you might find in places like Prague or Krakow, but this one is really lovely. You can reach it through any of the cute tiny streets, and if it's a sunny, you can just look up for a place to hang around and get marveled by this city.

“Fabulous square in fairy town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We newer saw anything as charming as this town before. It was like a fairytale. Lake, Mountains in the clouds, flowers in the windows... All of that creates unbelievable impression. Sunshine or cloudy day but still you will get a pleasure from visiting this town. Make sense visit Hallstatt from Munich or Salzburg even from Vienna. Good photos can't convey the beauty of this place. Certainly you can enjoy the pictures, but try to see it in reality.
Driving time from Munich approximately 3 hours. From the parking lot is about 10-15 minutes walk to the Markplatz. Boat ride and cable car are very close.
I think one day is enough, but it is worth visiting.

“Too beautiful to be true”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

I don't know if it is the salt mine (not a must...) or the very uniqe landscape, or both of them, gave Hallstatt the right to be listed on the UNESCO world heritage list, but there is no doubt that this little picturesque town is one of the most beautiful sites all over the world. The colorful buildings on the lake and on the hilly slopes, the winding little streets, the spectacular Marktplatz, and mainly the reflection of all of it on the lake is amazing, too beatiful to be true.

“Very authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

A must see attraction with much history of the area and very interesting locale. The weather needs to be sunny to make this enjoyable as it is outside.
