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

Located in the cemetery. Costs €1.50 each and includes a printed information page with multiple languages available. Interesting ossuary and worth the visit

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

Interesting bone yard. Takes about 10 minutes to view the entire room and read the information. Cost is only 1.50. Not a must see, but ok.

This ossuary is a must see if you go to Hallstatt. The skulls are all painted and lovingly taken care of. The cemetery out side is just a cool to visit.

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

I took my two children into chapel. It was very interesting. Not creepy or scary. Too small for that. Takes only 10 minutes if you take time. Less if just looking and not explaining.

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

Before I went to this place it was a bit scary (the chapel is located behind St.Michael Catholic Church, open daily from 10 am to 18 pm). The Chapel of St.Michael is even older the church. We had to pay 1.50 euros per person, entre...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... More
