Hard to find, but as you walk thru the town from the parking areas to the south, you will want to head up the village to the church on the hill to your left. There is a small, picturesque cemetery there that overlooks the lake...More
This is a small chapel, on the grounds of St. Michael's church-it's not a macabre attraction, but focuses on the love and respect given to ancestors. It's worth a stop-and the entrance fee is only E1.50.
Tripadvisor doesn't have the right map location, the Ossuary is up in Maria am Berg Church on the hill. The admission is $1.50 euro and you are given a piece of paper which describes the history and some of the stories. My english version looked...More
The town for centuries ran out of room in the tiny cemeteries so they put you in the ground, waited a while, then dug you up and stacked your bones in this room. It's really weird. And something I've never heard of or seen before....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
