We made a quick visit to this town in february, so luckly there were not many tourists. The town is charming, pretty houses and amazing views. Don't forget to be respectful, as there are more tourists in a day than inhabitants.

Hallstatt is broken down into several stunning sights that will get you foaming at the mouth, so the tip is to enjoy every second of it. If you can drive then go hire a car and benefit with freedom and time, the journey from Salzburg...More
