This is my second visit to Hallstat. Last visit 10 years ago. It has changed, lost some of its charm but definitely worth visiting. Wander around and be amazed at how much is packed into this tiny strip of land.
The Charnel House dates back to the twelfth century and is located in a small room in the Church cemetery. It contains around 1200 skulls over 600 of which are painted. For a small fee, you get an information leaflet describing how the practice of...More
This is a very small ossuary containing the painted skulls and thigh bones of residents of Hallstatt. People would be buried in the cemetery for 10 years then dug up. Their bones would be cleaned and their skull and thigh bones places in the ossuary....More
So I need to be honest and say that this is an almost unfair review. I love weird, creepy things so this type of place is right up my ally. Halloween is my favorite holiday and I was lucky enough to be able to go...More
On a recent tour of Hallstatt our guide suggested we visit the Ossuary. I was a bit skeptical at first but glad I climbed the steps to the chapel and paid the small fee to walk in the chapel. This is a very unique way...More

This place is tiny. I would allow 30 minutes max. It's a tiny room holding the skulls. Each skull is lovingly painted. It is not the gruesome experience I was expecting but a loving uplifting experience. The cemetery is small. On our visit we did not visit the museum in Hallstatt. My sister did. There are some amazing artefacts that have been immaculately preserved due to the salt. Depends what you like to see. The best photographic views are as you arrive by train from across the lake and catch the ferry. The village does get busy. If you can arrive early it will be quieter ! Enjoy. You lucky thing
