The viewpoint can be reached either on foot, after a significant hike, or by a funicular railway that runs from the town of Hallstatt. The funicular costs 20 euro for a two way journey. It is also close to a historically significant salt mine. The views are truly spectacular from here, however the viewpoint itself is so popular that there are often queues to take photos.

Our final stop in the area was Rudolf's Tower - originally a 14th (?) century defensive structure, now a cafe overlooking the Skywalk. Remember that thing about 'fun experiences'? Skywalk is another of those - a metal platform extending over the cliff edge so you can take selfies. I edged about halfway along it and took some pictures of the distant town below us but my brain kept reminding me how silly I was with each jolt of someone jumping on it because they thought it was amusing. The views are obviously spectacular though so it's worth the pain but it's more a 'look at me' kind of posing place than a photography vantage point. It's also busy!

There are different routes heading up to the skywalk, I can highly recommend hiking up because you'll get spectacular various views of the lake and mountains from each point. If you want to avoid the crowd (on the (road to the) skywalk and in the town too), it's worth arriving there early in the morning. From around 10 am, it is almost impossible to get a parking lot in and near Hallstatt.
The one and only disappointment was that on the top of the mountain, we wanted to come down with the funicular (Hallstatt Salzbergbahn), and after long minutes of searching for the cashier (who was a worker we caught in his run because there is no kassa there), we needed to find out that you can only pay with cash, not with card. Even though, there was not a single sign about it anywhere.

Very rude crew, over-expensive and not worth the money.
One of the worst places to visit, 20 euros per person, just to climb up and down a mountain, imagine me with a whole family with me. Who should I take with me, and who should I leave? That's the kind of existential questions, I was asking myself in front of a 100 person line waiting to waste their hard earned money for such a tourist trap.

Hello Chagraaa, Thank you so much for your visit and feedback! We’re very sorry that your experience with us was not to your liking. We do our best to provide an experience that enjoyable to most visitors. The price of the cable-car ticket includes not only your ride up and down the mountain but also the information in our multi-language audioguide, as well as the exhibition grave and the exhibits in the Knappenhaus. For our more athletically inclined visitors, there is also a trail to the Upper Hallstatt Valley, and hiking up would save you the money spent on the cable-car. Perhaps we would be able to redeem ourselves on your next visit? Best regards and a traditional “Glück Auf,” Your Salzwelten team

Nice little spot to go to. It would have seemed costly if we travelled up the railcar just for this, but we did the package of the tram up, the Salt Mine Tour and the Sky walk and as a package it was absolutely perfect and worth the money. The views even getting to the sky walk are incredible. The sky walk inself was smaller, shorter and not as high up as I had expected but it was still a beautiful perch to take in your surroundings.

We spent just 15eur for the boat and rowing along the river to see this small town on the side. The locals here was really friendly and willing to help, even their population here is just around 700-800 peoples but their potential tourism’s still always improved. Getting in the middle of the river and singing together, memorable time would never forget.

This is a great place to get some stunning photos to your family album! We are mountain fans so we really enjoyed the views, but I must say that the funicular is a bit pricey. It's not so expensive that it should be skipped (we didn't even consider walking up there with our kid) but not very affordable either. The skywalk was fairly crowded in July, but that's understandable during the summer season and cannot be avoided.

Dear svartdraumur, thank you for taking the time to write this feedback - we appreciate your opinion. The Skywalk can also be reached by foot, like you've already written. The hike up to the top takes about 1 hour and so the visit of the viewing platform is for free. We hope to welcome you again during your next trip to Austria! Best regards Your Salzwelten-Team

access to Hallstatt is near impossible in a motor home in October. All motor home car parks are closed and all other car parks have height restrictions. Staff are rude and unhelpful. I imagine this to be a beautiful place but clearly Hallstatt doesn’t care for tourist money.

We took a tour from the City of Salzburg. When we reach, the first view we had was marvelous from the lake.

The little houses, the small café & restaurants for tourist, the aspect and look of a small town, the lake with the rocky formations and the skywalk view was simply exceptional.

Even though that Austria is not sorrounded by SEA, the lakes itself shows other perspective of this beautiful country.

When in Hallstatt make sure you go up to the skywalk, whether it is sun or snow, for the most amazing views (depending on cloud cover) of the Alps, the lake and the towns surrounding the lake.

Hallstatt in December is amazing with markets and Gluhwein, great food.

We plan to re-visit some day and spend more than a morning there, hopefully a few days.
