What a treat. Walking through the old part of town is so picturesque. Many shops and restaurants that can keep you busy for hours. So many perfect picture opportunities. This is a must do. Very touristy.

The UNESCO World Heritage site is a town that time forgot. It still looks like a medieval Old Town with its narrow, winding, cobbled streets and the old style houses on the beautiful lake front. This is the town where you can get your own...More

The Hallstadt old town is amazing. It is probably the most beautiful setting I have seen in Europe thus far. We went in May and the crowds were not extreme but in summer it may get very congested.

Beautiful but a nightmare. People are rude, not much to see, and it is just tourists walking around taking pictures.

I join the numerous reviews of admired visitors (I am glad that I used also a recommendation to pass by the third Gosau lake). The lake, the old town and the waterfall uphill form a really fairytale scenery. You should find some time to stroll...More

Very touristy but very nice place on a very cool but sunny day. The lake looks pristine and the town just a charming village. Some come here to have their pre-nuptial photos taken. Others have booked their hotels here but warning you may have to...More

My opinion, 1 day is not enough to cover both cities plus traveling time in between plus time for meal and plus time back to Vienna. Each of those cities deserve to be there at least for 1 day each. But it depends what you... More
